    Wish you a very happy new year !!

    Sankrant (a.k.a. Pongal) is the first festival of the calendar year. Unlike most Indian festivals, this is not related to any religious occasion but to the Harvest and Winter - an occasion that rhymes with everyone of all religions, creeds, and geographies.

    Sankrant is celebrated in Maharashtra - the western state of India - in a very unique way. Are you keen to know and enjoy the same? Then come to this Harvest Carnival we are putting up for you at SINDA. We will have various small booths telling you about the importance of wearing black clothes, of having Til Gul (sesame jaggary sweet), of flying kites, of baby showers with Indian plums, of wearing the sugar jewelry, of eating jaggary chapati and of sharing the loots with fellow ladies.

    It will include knowing about SINDA's activities and exploring the volunteering avenues.

    So, let's meet at SINDA and celebrate this festival with a difference in a uniquely different way.

    Don't forget to wear your festive black clothes!

    Dear MMS Members & NonMembers,

    MMS has been a proud participant of Chingay Parade since 2 years. We enjoy the rehearsals and put up a dazzling show each year. The parade is attended by the PM and President and relayed on TV multiple times after the parade.

    Check last few year's Chingay Parade videos here.

    We have been invited to participate in the award winning Indian Contingent this year which will be bigger and more fun. We will be a part of a larger troupe of many Indian participants and will be accompanying a float. The costumes and choreography will be done at a larger scale and will be more colourful.

    This year's theme is : The royal wedding of inter-ethnic cultures of the Indian community
    Main Parade Dates: 14th, 15th & 16th February 2019
    Costume Distribution: 7th January 2018
    Full Dress Rehearsal & NE Show: 19 January & 26th January

    Your rehearsals attendance is needed from 23rd November. Critical rehearsal dates are November and 5th January onwards until the parade.

    Please note:
    • Rehearsal venue would be PA headquarters (Off Jalan Besar, Little India) and F1 Pit Building
    • Each participant will be given a remuneration of 10$ per rehearsal (attended) to defray the travel cost after the parade.
    • Costumes will be given by PA. They need to be returned to PA after the parade.
    • If you are a member, you would need to renew your membership for 2019 in January 2019. Nonmembers would need to take up MMS Membership by January end. Membership taken in 2019 will be valid until March 2020. Kids below 12 don't need their own membership as long as one of their parents is a member.
    We invite you to participate in large numbers and integrate with the local diaspora.

    We specially invite youth between 7 and 21 years to participate. The participation certificate by Chingay will be helpful for you in your curriculum. MMS will also issue a separate certificate of participation indicating the # of rehearsal days attended as a contribution to a nonprofit cause.

    Please register your interest by 28th November 2018 and start attending the rehearsals.

    For any queries, please email feedback@mmsingapore.org with a subject as "Chingay 2019" or whatsapp Nalini @ +65-92957000.

    Thanks,
    MMS Karyakarini

    History of Chingay Parade

    Chingay is an annual street parade held as part of the Chinese New Year celebrations. The word “Chingay” is derived from the Chinese term zhuangyi, meaning "the art of costume and masquerade". It originated in China's Fujian province, and refers to the decorated floats depicting religious and historical scenes that were carried on the shoulders of men. Originally a religious festival, it is believed that Chingay was brought to Penang by 19th-century Chinese immigrants. In Singapore, Chingay processions were known to have taken place in the late 19th to early 20th centuries. The modern Chingay parade was mooted by Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. After firecrackers were banned in 1972, he had the idea of holding a parade similar to those held in Penang. The noise of a parade could whip up the festive mood like the firecrackers, which was a Chinese New Year custom to drive away evil spirits. The first parade, organised by the People’s Association and the Singapore National Pugilistic Association was held on Feb 4, 1973. Early parades were held in the heartlands. In 1985, it was held for the first time in Orchard Road. In 1987, the parade featured its first foreign acts when The Straits Times sponsored four Japanese performers. Through the years, the parade has evolved into a national celebration, attracting local and international participants.
