Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha celebrates 35 years
The Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, on Thursday last, celebrated 35 years of its unequivocal commitment to the propagation of Hinduism in its pristine purity, and fostering its rich cultural heritage.
This is according to the President of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, Pandit Reepu Daman Persaud, when its members commemorated the auspicious occasion at the Shri Krishna Mandir in Campbellville.
He added that the Sabha is so structured that it presents wide involvement of its membership in the decision making process through its various Praants.
“It has been a challenging, complex and difficult period, but our achievements made us proud, and so we celebrate with pride and joy.”
Dr Madan Rambarran, the Sabha’s Senior Vice-President, traced the achievements of the organisation from the beginning, pointing to the progress it has made in the various areas and its innovative creation of many new events in the country, including the Deepavali Motorcade, Holi Utsav, Naya Zamana and Kala Utsay.
Dr Rambarran meticulously assessed the work of the thirty-five-year-old Hindu movement.
“Not, of course, excluding our success in the education field.”
He noted that the Sabha’s schools, the Rama Krishna Dharmic School in Barr Street, Kitty and Shri Krishna Play School at Campbellville, have done exceedingly well.
“I am proud to declare the results at the end of each term…The Sabha must be commended for churning out a large number of persons at the leadership level, who now possess the skills to promote the work of the Sabha.”
He called on the gathering to continue to give support to the Sabha.
Finance Minster Dr Ashni Singh, who was also present at the gathering, informed those attending the service at the Mandir that he started at the Sabha at the Bacho-ka-Satsangh group, which was headed by Indrani Persaud, and he remained appreciative of the good work the Sabha is doing and the fact that he came out from the Sabha’s training groups.
He lauded the leadership of Pandit Reepu Daman Persaud, noting that he benefited from the pandit’s inspiring messages.
Agriculture Minister Robert Persaud congratulated the Sabha for the good work it is doing.
Attorney General Doodnauth Singh, who also graced the occasion with his presence, reminisced on some of the achievements of the group during its 35-year existence.
