Sangam leaders

Dhirendra Prasad, Lautoka
Wednesday, March 29, 2017

READING the article by Shayal Devi titled Sangam goes from strength to strength (FT 27/03/17) has triggered the reality of the calibre of leaders then.

Although they may not have had the level of qualification as of the current generation, I believe they had the wisdom to unite the people.

Through unity and under extreme conditions of poverty, I believe they were able to think and work out solutions that were a testimony of their genuine desire to serve the people.

Their efforts have led them to have a very large organisation with 18 early childhood education centres, 21 primary schools, five secondary schools and a college of nursing.

I believe they have left a legacy that is yet to be matched.

Their selfless service is evident today in the form of the institutions Sangam administers.

Sadhuji with his dedicated and visionary team can never be matched no matter how qualified and educated we become.

I believe this is because of their selflessness and god-given strength to withstand challenges and think above the rest.

God bless these founding members of Sangam and the founder, our sadhuji.

Our children must give them the credit they deserve to be blessed.

They had a vision of promoting their mother tongue which I believe should be embraced in the institutions of Sangam.
