Rajput Association of America (RAOA) celebrated 25th Anniversary with a great pomp and show at Tandoor, Cuisine of India, in Orange, CA on July 18, 2009. RAOA was formed by a group of Rajput community members on February 17, 1984 when they felt the need for Rajput community to have some identity for its future generation. It has since flourished into a large group that holds community picnics, religious functions as well as fund raising for helping other communities.

July 18 celebration was attended by over 250 people including Anaheim City Council Member Harry Sidhu and Orange County Assistant Clerk of the Board Hugh Nguyen. Mr. Sidhu congratulated the Rajput Community for its solid bond for 25 years and presented a proclamation from the City of Anaheim to the president Rajesh Dhunna. Mr. Sidhu also released the Souvenir marking the 25th anniversary of the Rajput Association.

Mr. Hugh Nguyen was impressed by the Rajput community’s cohesiveness and congratulated them for 25 years of unity. Celebrations included Bhangra, dances by students of Vandana Ranjan’s Dance School and a slide show of association’s early day memories. Kewal Kanda, member, Board of Trustees opened the celebrations with a brief history of Rajput Association’s formation. Amit Sehdev and Monica Verma were masters of ceremonies.
