परभाषेतही व्हा पारंगत, ज्ञानसाधना करा तरी, 

मायमराठी मरते इकडे परकीचे पद चेपू नका ।

भाषा मरता देशही मरतो, संस्कृतीचाही दिवा विझे,

गुलाम भाषक होऊनि अपुल्या प्रगतीचे शिर कापू नका ।।

'टाइम्स मराठी कार्निव्हल' ला अधिक मराठमोळ बनवण्यासाठी व एकाच छत्राखाली मराठी संस्कृतीचा पुनःप्रत्यय देण्यासाठी मित्रमंडळाने विशेष व्यवस्था केली आहे. 


त्यात पुस्तकांच्या माध्यमातून माणसे जोडणारे, मनामध्ये वाचनाची गोडी उत्पन्न करणारे व वाचन संस्कृतीचे जतन करणारे असे “अक्षरधारा” अापले ग्रंथ प्रदर्शन, पुस्तक व सीडी विक्री करणार आहेत. २०० हून अिधक प्रकाशक व लाखाहून अिधक पुस्तके, अशी त्यांच्या प्रदर्शनांची ख्याती अाहे. तसेच संगणकाच्या आणि फ्लॅट संस्कृतीच्या युगात पुन्हा एकदा, आपल्या वाडा संस्कृतीत नेणारे, २००० तांबे-पितळेच्या चिमुकल्या भांडयांचे “भातुकली” प्रदर्शन म्हणजे काळाच्या ओघात नाहिसा होणारा पण आवर्जून जतन केलेला ठेवा अाहे.  विस्मृतीत गेलेल्या आठवणींना उजाळा देण्यासाठी आवर्जून पहावा असा हा आजीच्या भातुकलीचा संसार. काळाच्या आड गेलेले स्मृतीतले, विस्मृतीतले, घराघरातले अन् अंगणातले ५० प्रकारचे खेळही या प्रदर्शनात पाहता येतील. (प्रदर्शनांना प्रवेश विनामुल्य आहे.) त्याबरोबरच अस्सल “मराठी जेवणाचा बेत” ही ठेवला आहे.  त्यात साबुदाणा वडा , वडा-पाव, मिसळ-पाव, पिठलं-भाकरी , कांदाभजी, व्हेज थाळी पासून ते चक्क कोल्हापुरी चिकन, तांबडा-पांढरा रसा पर्यंत पर्याय असणार आहेत.

After giving successful recent programs during year 2014 like, "Swaranakshatra" featuring Madhura Datar & Ajit Parab, "Famili Drama" featuring senior actress Sukanya Kulkarni, "Anand Rang" featuring Pt. Anand Bhate, "Katkone Trikone" featuring senior actors like Dr Mohan Agashe, "Chimanrao Te Gandhi" By Dilip Prabhawalkar, Mitramandal is now proud to present a Marathi drama featuring well known actor Shri Mohan Joshi. "SUKHAANT” an entertaining Marathi Drama on 18th January 2015 at New Horizon College of Engineering, Outer Ring Road

'Sukhant' is a family drama that beautifully unwinds the changing family equations of the 21st century India.  While the multidimensional story of 'Pradhan' couple, their brilliant but carefree son Deven and his girl friend Gracy unfolds itself in a fast pace, it mesmerizes the audience into itself. The drama scripted by Ratnakar Matkari and produced by 'Aashay' is ably brought to life by the excellent performances of famed Mohan Joshi and Charusheela Sable & Nandita Dhuri in the lead roles. Nandita Dhuri is recent ‘Elizabeth Ekadashi’ movie fame who gave stunning performance.
