Kathiawad Hindu Samaj(Natal)
SOME seventy-five years ago, a small band of intrepid men, born of the hardy soil of that small corner of India, known as Kathiawad, re-named Saurashtra and now forming part of the new State of Gujarat, came to the shores of South Africa. Like all pioneers, they possessed little material wealth, but were fortified both in spirit and mind by their philosophy and heritage, the Hindu Religion. They were the Kathiawadi Hindus, the smallest section of the Indian people to have migrated to this country. Even today they do not number more than a hundred families.
