Nina and Asit Harshad Amritlal Shah of Carlsbad arranged a picnic on Sunday, October 5, at Salt Creek Beach, Orange County, California. It was attended by about 35 Oshwals living in Southern California. This was the first gathering of Oshwals of Southern California. Everybody had a good time – the ocean water was a little cool, but the kids being more adventerous did not mind swimming in the ocean. Nina and Ahit had made a special effort to provide roasted Mogo and Corn as appetizers, and the main entree was the Subway sandwich. Before saying good bye and heading home, everybody was happy to have a hot cup of Masala tea.
