Sri Das was our beloved and dedicated member who had encountered a road accident while on tour two months back and was injured seriously, which ultimately resulted in his sad demise. I along with each and every member of our association pray to the Almighty to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and bestow enough power and courage to the bereaved family to bear with such a profound loss.


    During the course of Das’s medical treatment till his death around a sum of Rs. 12 lakhs was spent which has put that family under a tremendous financial hardship and crisis.


    Under such circumstances, I appeal to all of our members to stand by the side of the family by offering financial help generously.
