FLIER 3 --APRIL 2Gujaratis of North America ( is celebrating Gujarat Day on Saturday May 01, 2021. This program will be televised on TV Asia as well as TV channel in Ahmedabad.

Famous Gujarati singers like Osman Mir, Sairam Dave, Geetaben Rabari, Kinjal Dave, Kairavi Buch will perform, Gujarat chief minister Mr Vijaybhai Rupani and many other political figures and well known Gujarati celebrities will take part in this event. Sole purpose of this event is to bring our 2nd generation Indian youth together and unite our Gujarati community.

Below are few facts about what GONAUSA achieved in last one year.


Gujaratis of North America – USA (“GONAUSA”) was born during COVID-19 with a virtual event titled, “Karo Na Daan” featuring top Gujarati musical artists such as Kiritidan Gadhvi, Atul Purohit, Osman Mir, and more. Our organization show an opportunity to provide for those who were adversely affected by the global pandemic, and was able to raise $250,000 for those in need in India and the USA.

This program brought together several Gujarati communities, including Jains, Saurashtra Patidar, Leva Patels and senior groups, and various Gujarati societies from all over the USA. The event was televised on TV Asia, YouTube and Facebook, resulting in   more than 100,000 views.

The “Karo Na Daan” program gave light to the idea of bringing Gujaratis together on one platform similar to other Indian communities such as Telugu, Tamil, Bengali, and Punjabi, which have national and local organizations.

Gujaratis do have religious national organizations like BAPS and JAINA; however, there are hundreds of different temples, senior groups and community organizations made up of approximately 1.5 million people. As one of the wealthiest communities in the USA, it was time for a national platform. In conversations with community leaders, there is enthusiasm and support for an organization that focuses on bringing our second generation and future generations together to form a strong Gujarati organization.

That is how GONA was born.
