The Greater Sacramento area has had a reasonable number of Marathi-speaking families for quite some time. Marathi Mandal Sacramento was formed in order to bring them all together in a celebration of the Maharashtrian culture. Marathi Mandal Sacramento hopes to achieve this by organizing regular activities and events that will reflect the spirit of our community. It will also be a platform for our new generations to understand and preserve our customs and traditions, and foster pride for our common language, culture and history.
The need for such forum for Marathi-speaking families was recognized by Ajit Natu. He initiated the thought process amongst small number of Marathi speaking families about forming the mandal which has now become a reality.
