An idle mind is a devil’s workshop“… Let’s change that to “An idle mind makes a creative genius“ !!!


Unprecedented times, WFH, not being able to go out, leaves precious extra time on our hands! Multiple groups, a lot of friends, different tastes and creativity, has now given way to Facebook Live ,Google Hangouts and ZOOM sessions and many more avenues for us to mingle.

एक मेका सहाय्य करू“ has always been the slogan for MMD! We would like to take this opportunity to showcase the talent of our Members by sharing their Facebook live segments on our MMDet page on Facebook. Be it music, food, yoga, knitting, standup comedy, book clubs, painting, gardening, poetry, or even a discourse on Bhagvadgeeta, we welcome it all.

Here is the ask:
Please email your upcoming “Going Live“ dates and times to and we will share your link!!!
Please ensure you GO LIVE with Settings as “Share to Public“ (everyone, whether your friend or not, should be able to access it)
Please like us on Facebook “Maharashtra Mandal of Detroit”
Please ensure that your content is appropriate for all audiences, and is worthy of being displayed under the MMD Banner. It must be between 25 minutes to 60 minutes in duration.
Thanks for doing your part in fighting the CoronaVirus outbreak and for all your valuable contributions to our community. We look forward to meeting some or all of you on the Facebook MMDet page soon.

Message from Marathi Shala

Hello Parents,

Hopefully by now you all have an established routine at home with kids, their activities, their studies etc. These certainly are very challenging times. We hope that you all are healthy and safe.

BMM has taken the decision to postpone the Marathi exams to October or November. We will have Assessment Tests in September.

At this point we really don’t know when kids will be able to go back to schools or Shala. In order to stay in touch with kids and help them stay in touch with Marathi, beginning Sunday 4/5/20, the Troy and Canton Marathi Shala plan on having online sessions with kids, either using Zoom or Google Hangouts. These sessions will be 40 to 45 minutes in duration. We will need your help in setting up these meetings for kids. It will be very helpful if you could stay around during these sessions, in case kids run into any technical difficulties.

Your kid’s teachers will share details with you, including start times. Most of the sessions will be at 4pm on Sunday, however some teachers might change it if they have a conflict.
Stay indoors, stay safe. Please contact us at for any information.

~Marathi Shala Teachers
