Sultan Jessa: Fun and food galore at the Ottawa Jamati picnic!

Hundreds, including many from Montreal, attended Ottawa’s annual Jamati picnic at Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm in Edwards, Ont. On Sunday.

The crowds were slightly down compared to previous years because of uncertain weather forecast.

But, despite this, Bashir Surani, president of the Aga Khan District Council of Ottawa, said everyone seemed to have a good time with the weather co-operating until the late afternoon.

There was plenty to eat including barbecued ribs and chicken and garam, garam bhajias, corn, salad and other refreshments.

Children and those young at heart were treated to a scenic ride around the lush green farm on a horse drawn carriage.

The talented and self-tutored sister and brother team of Saba and Damyal Rawjani provided musical entertainment with devotional, classical and oldies.

There was singing and dancing in the open air as Saba charmed the audience with her capturing voice by dishing out popular songs while Damyal played the keyboard.
