Hosted by Megha Gupta, who did an outstanding job in not only bringing everyone together but opening her home and heart to fellow LHMCAANA members. She was supported by the Miami organizing team.

Hardonians spent the weekend together, starting with a live DJ, amazing food, a belle dancer show, antakshari and breathtaking Hardonian dance moves that took us back to the LHMC college fests- Cobweb and Splash. The highlight of the weekend was Holi on the beach followed by aloo poori and a red carpet walk honoring all the Hardonions.

Thank you Dr Kumkum for taking this picture of me, (Savita) with Chitra and Roop- the 3 from the 1965 batch. Thanks to Hema Nathan for posting it on our batch chat. As a member of the organizing committee I want to express my regrets for being unable to attend the full event. Although it was only one evening for me, it was truly memorable. I was really touched by Megha’s kind gesture of announcing my 50th wedding anniversary with a yummy cake. It was a joy to meet you all and to see the spirit of Harding shine so bright. Thanks to all my committee members for a great job.

Radha Ramarutham- 81

A few words on my experience on this LHMCAANA get together. First it brought me back to the time when we were in college, but now without the stress of future planning and exams. But more importantly it got me connected to a lot of fellow Hardonians and gave me an opportunity to learn and get motivated by each one of you that somehow or the other influenced me in some way and so thank you all for making this happen. A special thanks to Archie and Kishor for having so many batch mates as house guests and Kumkumji for having the vision to get this to move forward and Megha and Pankaj for hosting this grand event and all the local Florida team and our honorary Hardonian Rimpy as well for all their painstaking efforts. Hugs and kisses to juniors, respects your seniors and cheers to all of you

When the planning started I thought ‘should I go? I thought to give it a shot and was still doubting myself -‘if I took the right decision”.

But ever since I put my foot her it has been nothing less than a dream. I dream of Hardinge that I always wanted to relive since graduation. Thanks for making it happen. An event to remember. Awesome, mind blowing, rejuvenate, thrilling, should pleasing. Not good with words but hopefully my dance yesterday could show the ‘ happiness zone’ I was in. Thanks to all the planners and attendees as fun is incomplete without you all.

Dear LHMCAANA friends, the Miami meet was truly memorable. I was impressed with the energy and warmth of the group. Age didn’t matter, whether very young or senior citizens like myself. I was very touched and surprised when Megha announced my golden wedding anniversary, complete with a cake, garlands and nostalgic music. I could not come for day 2 or day 3 but I lived it through the pictures and posts. Way to go Hardonians!

Dr. Megha Gupta, the current treasurer did a fantastic job at her home, celebrating the get together of Hardonians. I presented a plaque of appreciation to Dr. Archana, past president as I had done to all past presidents being Founding president of LHMCAANA. Also honored the current executive committee by giving them Calendars on Women’s Health . Here are some of the memories of this weekend I love to share.
