BDPA (INDIA) acknowledges numbers of phone calls, emails, whatsApp messages from members and well-wishers and sharing our grief and joining in our most painful time.
BDPA (INDIA) has lost one of its founder member and pillar and it will be unbearable loss to the Association. He was instrumental in all the progressive measures undertaken by the Association. But for his contribution, the 2nd All India Conference which was conducted in September, 2015 would have not reached to such such successful peak. He was key person who contributed glitteringly in publishing 4th Edition of ‘BSNL Pensioners Telephone Directory cum Hand Book 2015”.
In his demise, G.S. has lost his personal friend who was his inspiration for last fifty years in various institutions. His guidance and instinct of timely correct advice will be missed by us.
We pray our homage to departed soul and pray Almighty to bestow eternal peace to his soul in heavenly abode.
GS BDPA (INDIA)
