Agartala: Dec 10: Shyam Sundar Co Jewellers commemorated the 83rd Birth Anniversary of ‘role model and beacon’ Hrishikesh Saha at ‘Hrishikesh’ – an address that stands in his memory – on 10th December 2023.
Hrishikesh Saha, in his lifetime, was involved in the family business of undertaking major public construction contracts in Tripura and added to the reputation of the house.
And personally, being full of life, he built roads and bridges across the minds and hearts of people.
He is, therefore, fondly remembered by a legion of people whose lives he had touched.
And ‘Durga & Friends’ is an initiative of Shyam Sundar Co Jewellers to stand by the abandoned girl child at a ‘shelter’ in Kolkata and celebrate the power of love and care.
That was a pledge which has come a long way in being there for the girls and seeing many of them rise and shine.
Today, on the 83rd Birth Anniversary of ‘role model and beacon, Hrishikesh Saha, Shyam Sundar Co Jewellers renewed the pledge to stay committed to the cause of ‘Durga & Friends’ and take on additional responsibilities in that direction which include getting supporting professionals to don the mantle of teacher, sports instructor, yoga trainer, medical consultant, talent coach and mentor – for the all round development of the girls and to prepare them for a promising future.
Apart from continuing to maintain a steady supply of provisions, nutrients, study material and sports-kits … and stead-fast flow of love and affection.
All this for the next one year after which it will be time for a fresh new oath.
“My husband lived a healthy and happy life and wished the same for everybody because he believed that is what really leads to a healthy and happy society”, said Mrs Bela Saha, wife of Hrishikesh Saha.
“He was always there for anybody who needed a helping hand and that is why he is fondly remembered by a legion of people whose lives he had touched and who he had inspired – to keep celebrating life”, said their son, Rupak Saha, Director, Shyam Sundar Co Jewellers.
“That is also why we commemorate his birth anniversary with health camps, initiatives like the annual ‘Medha Utsav’ and, this year, the renewed pledge for ‘Durga & Friends’ “, said daughter-in-law Arpita Saha, Director, Shyam Sundar Co Jewellers, adding, “as these are causes that were close to his heart.”
The ‘Hrishikesh Saha Memorial’ Pledge was followed by gifting of study material, art material and winter-wear to the girls who were there in full force and form – with much joy and cheer showing in their faces.
And, with a merry community feast, the day’s programme ended on a really happy note.
