After confirmation of the minutes of the previous meeting and paying homage to the members of the biradari who left for heavenly, abode recently (especially Brig. Ravi Datt Mehta for his supreme sacrifice in Kabul and for those killed in Bangalore and Ahmedabad blasts).
Mr. B.M. Bakshi-President, Mohyal Sabha, Vasundhara Enclave in his welcome address gave a brief account of the activities of the sabha. He stated that each member was working dedicatedly for the up-liftment of the biradari, under the guidance of GMS. Even though small in number, the members give of their best to give consistent results. He welcomed and thanked Mr. Ranjit Kumar, General Secy., Sr. Citizens Welfare Society for lending his help in facilitating the sabha to hold its monthly meetings at the Recreation Centre.
Mr. Bakshi also congratulated Rzd. B.D. Bali on his 78th birthday on 11th August, 2008.
All members of MS Vasundhara Enclave received a copy of the Mohyal History from the gracious hands of Rzd. B.D. Bali, so that the members of the sabha and their families, especially the coming generation, may know about the rich heritage of the community and get motivated and inspired to involve themselves to enrich the community with their contribution and script a new chapter in our history.
Copies of Amrit Vaani by Swami Satya Nand ji were also distributed on this occasion.
Rzd. B.D. Bali- President GMS said that he had been associated with the activities of the GMS for the last 30 years. When he took over GMS, the sabha had meagre funds, limited means and many problems at organizational level. Quoting an Urdu Couplet– “Mein to akela chala tha janebe manzil magar– Log sath aate gaye karwan banta gaya’’. He added that thanks to the commitment and dedication of members, things have positively and greatly improved now, with active participation by Mohyal brethren, with no ego problem and there has been a sea change in all aspects. By and large, every Mohyal is a true Mohyal who is now thinking in terms of brotherhood with an attitude of helping each other, without any disparity of status, high or low. Generals, high ranking officers and Mohyals with no sufficient means sit together in the open session and engage in free and frank discussions over matters and problems facing the community. This has led to credibility of Mohyals at all levels.
Our vision has been to harness the wholehearted energy toward creating productive projects and institutions. We have achieved success after success, year after year, by strengthening gMS, not only at organizational level but also making it financially very sound. He said that today we have trusts worth Rs. 3 crores which are very well managed. Building Mohyal Ashram and creating corpus of Rs. 90 lacs for langar fund, Mohyal Foundation and Mohyal Bhawan, Inderpuri, are symbols of our achievements.
On the education front also we are aggressively taking a big leap so that children of the biradari make most of it. Our efforts have been to help children whose parents economic condition is not good, by offering them financial help and stipends. We are looking after needy widows with regular financial aid.
Bali Sahib said that everyone amongst us should ask himself as to what he has done for the biradari. Though we are now self sufficient, well-organized, this is not enough. We have to climb another ladder of success. He exhorted the Mohyal youth to come forward with spirited zeal and dedication, as ultimately, they have to shoulder the responsibility of taking the Mohyal community to great heights of glory.
Bali Sahib was very impressed with performance and new initiatives being taken by Mohyal Sabha, Vasundhara Enclave, and wished the sabha all the best in its sincere endeavours to do something constructive for the community.
He blessed Master Abhinav, who is just 3 months old, grand son of Mr. B.M. Bakshi and son of Radhika & Vivek Bakshi, and wished him a bright future and long life.
Bali Sahib was sentimentally moved when he met Mrs. Krishna Mehta w/o the late Mr. J.R. Mehta- Founder Secretary MS Vasundhara Enclave and gave a healing touch to her feelings. He exhorted her to remain active in the affairs of the sabha, thus making the dreams of her husband a reality.
Shri D.V. Mohan- Secretary General GMS, in his brief speech, said that we should be well interconnected, as is the case with other communities. We should look after the needy persons. We are honouring our students with merit, especially girls with scholarship. He also referred to Mohyal Ashram at Haridwar with best stay facilities, and about the proposed Vridh Ashram, at Dehradun. He wanted each and every Mohyal youth, who is 18 years and above, to become GMS Life Member by contributing Rs.2100/-.
Mohyal Mitter, the official organ of the GMS, is more than 100 years old. Mr. Mohan added that efforts be made to enroll more subscribers so that biradari remains well connected and informed.
Mrs. Amba Bali-Convenor Matrimonial Committee GMS said that matrimonial get-togethers are regularly being held on quarterly basis and our community should take maximum advantage of this facility. The parents can visit Mohyal Bhawan, Inderpuri and interact with each other for positive results. She desired that they must bring photographs of eligible boys & girls as also horoscope, which will considerably help at the time of preliminary discussions and can lead to final decisions.
Mr. M.K. Datta (Dilbar Noorani) an active member of Mohyal Sabha, Vasundhara Enclave, Delhi and an Urdu poet of repute, conducted the proceedings.
He also recited two of his poems befitting the occasion, which drew spontaneous applause and appreciation from the audience.
Mr. G.L. Chhibber- Gen. Secretary Mohyal Sabha, Vasundhara Enclave, Delhi proposed a vote of thanks. He was extremely thankful to Rzd. Bali, Mohan Sahib, Amba Behenji for gracing the occasion and motivating the members to richly contribute for up-liftment of the biradari. He also recited a poem saluting Mohyals, Mohyaliat and GMS.
Specially prepared mementoes were presented to Rzd. B.D. Bali, Mohan Sahib, Amba Behenji & Mrs. Pomela.
The meeting came to a happy end after a delicious lunch, hosted by Mrs. Parveen Bakshi w/o Mr. B.M. Bakshi-President, MS Vasundhara Enclave and their daughter-in-law.
During the post lunch period, Rzd. B.D. Bali interacted with members freely and frankly and asked about their welfare. The matter concerning Mohyals and future steps to be taken for starting more developmental projects were also discussed.

euphoria, high praise on birthday of rzd. b.d. bali
Birthday of Rzd. B. D. Bali, President ( GMS ) on August 11, was celebrated spontaneously with gaiety and enthusiasm at the monthly Managing Committee of GMS held on Sunday the 10th August, 2008 at the Mohyal Foundation, New Delhi.
On this occasion Mr. D.V. Mohan, Secretary General, GMS, eulogised the dedication and devotion of Bali Sahib to the social causes and sparing so much of time from his multifarious business activities in service of the community. He expressed his pleasure to observe that under his able guidance the MOUNT SHIVALIK Group is making big strides in various spheres including hospitality sector. His company has recently been granted a License to establish a Brewery in Haryana for which the Bhumi Pujan was performed on July 25, 2008 at a family gathering at the Project site at SAHA near Ambala. While every body wished all success to his business ventures, Mr. D.V. Mohan, expressed that every successful entrepreneur in the community should emulate Rzd. B.D. Bali and spare some time for the welfare of the community. Mr. D.V. Mohan recited the following two Urdu couplets applicable to Rzd. B.D. BALI:
“Nahin muhtaj zewar ka jise khubi khuda ne di –
ke, kya khushnama lagta hai chand bin gehne “
“ quam ke maidan se bazi ko jo le jai jeet –
kyon sana khwan hon na hum us shesware quam ke “
Shri M.K. Datta, Secretary, Vasundra Enclave Mohyal Sabha recited two poems that he had composed specially for the occasion in praise of the President (GMS). One of the poems was in the style of Punjabi ‘Tapay’ that was much enjoyed by the audience. Both the poems will be published in the Hindi section of Mohyal Mitter, Sept. 2008.
It was an open house thereafter. Rzd. B.D. Bali was garlanded and presented bouquets and carnation flowers, individually by all present. Bouquets were also given on behalf of Mohyals of the seven sub castes.
Shri Sandeep Dutta of Janakpuri had brought a huge cake that was ceremoniously cut by Rzd. Bali who also blew the lighted candles. Portions of the cake were served to Rzd. B.D. Bali, and to all present.
ch. s.n. datta felicitated
The House also greeted and felicitated Ch: S.N. Dutta, a veteran member of GMS and President of Mohyal Educational Society (MES) on his birthday on 15th August. Shri Dutta hosted a sumptuous Lunch for all the members to celebrate his birthday.
In the end Shri B.L. Chhibber I.R.S. (Retd.) while highlighting the far-sightedness of the forefathers of the community, who had established the GMS 117 years back, in 1891, stated that the organization had seen many Presidents and Secretaries, during all these years, and had seen many ups and downs. It had survived all the vicissitudes and even the turmoil of partition. It had shifted from Lahore to Amritsar from Amritsar, it had moved to Delhi.
In 1978, exactly 30 years back, a new star was born in the GMS horizon, viz., Rzd. B.D. Bali, due to the eternal good fortune of the community. Over all these years, he has steered the ship of GMS extremely well and brought it to what it is today. From the fledging institution, which it was in 1978, he had built it, brick by brick, and brought it to its present lofty heights. During this journey, he had successfully taken all the members of the community along. That is the unique quality of a good leader. The Mohyal community consists of literate, rich, militant and aggressive individuals and uniting them and leading them was no mean achievement.
Shri B.L. Chhibber concluded his speech with a Sanskrit sloka, in praise of Surya Deva, in which prayers are offered to the Sun God to bless us to live for 100 years, to also give us good eyesight, good hearing, and be healthy and active, be without want, for all these 100 years. While congratulating Rzd. B.D. Bali, on his birthday, Shri B.L. Chhibber wished that all the above may be granted by the Lord to Rzd. B.D. Bali, so that he may continue to lead the community for many more years to come.
nishkam service is true service of mankind
Be engaged always in the service of people. The human body is anyway impermanent, so it is better it wears out in service, Constant effort and hard work are absolutely essential. If ten rupees is earned by hard work, we must return a thousand rupees to society through more hard work.
Prayer and worship are not enough. There is no difference between the Creator and His creation. Do you need to show a candle to the sun? Similarly, you do not need to worship God. He is within you and in everybody around you. In service to His creation you establish contact with the Creator. Krishna, even though he was complete in himself, still worked relentlessly. Arjuna however wanted to run away from the scene. You cannot run away. You have to do your bit. Not always will the situation be to your liking. You may not be able to change it. You can only change your mind, your attitude. If your neighbour makes too much noise, you can complain to the police. If your street is noisy, you can move elsewhere, but if your mind is creating all the chaos, what do you do? Recognise those circumstances we can change and those we have to accept.
A king got pricked by a thorn when he was out hunting. He was furious and ordered that his entire kingdom be carpeted. His ministers were in a fix. Wherefrom would they get so many rolls of carpet? A senior minister offered the suggestion that the king wear shoes and thankfully the king appreciated him. Similarly, we too should be able to change our attitude, we cannot expect the world to change.
How can we change our attitude? For that, mind control is important. Our mind is like an old car that stops only after colliding against some object, for its brakes don’t work well. Modern cars come to a standstill the moment you apply the power brakes. The mind is like a supermarket with many thoughts. In a supermarket we do not buy everything and anything. We take only that which we want. Similarly, we should let only some thoughts develop and let the others disappear. The mind is like an elephant. An elephant, along its path, keeps plucking, tearing at any branch or leaves that come its way. But when the mahout keeps it on track, it is focused and walks a straight path. To still the mind and to have its remote control in our hands, we need meditation.
However, people meditate, do japa while their mind is travelling elsewhere. To steer the mind you need to be aware, to be mindful. If someone were pointing a gun at you, how conscious you would be of yourself! It is that kind of alertness or awareness that we should have all the time. If we are close to fire, how careful would we be! That is how careful we should be with every moment of our life. The mind is like water, it is always turning downwards weighed down by our many desires and wordly aspirations. Water always flows downwards. But look at fire, it always leaps upwards. If you put fire under water, it sends water also upwards in the form of steam. We should be like that. Our mind should be able to be light and alert.

COMPARATIVE VALUE OF RUPEE
While doing research for writing the History of General Mohyal Sabha, some very interesting facts have come to my notice. Those days the transactions were in Rupees, Annas and Pies. The basic unit of monetary transactions was the silver rupee cast from sterling silver and weighing one tola. The present market value of the old silver coin is Rs. 325/- per piece. The present value of some of the Mohyal Sabha transactions of those days, are as under:
Donations by the biggest donor Munshi Ram Das Chhibber:
Old Rate Present value
Donation to DAV Managing Rs. Rs.
Committee for Scholarships to
Mohyal students: 30,000 97,50,000
Donation for Mohyal Ashram, Lahore 18,000 58,50,000
Life Member 250 81,250
Permanent Member 50 16,250
Ordinary Member 5 1,625
(Note: In addition Permanent Members and Ordinary Members had to pay a monthly subscription of annas 4 and annas 2, respectively till they became Life Members who were exempt from the payment of monthly subscription. Present value of this monthly subscription works out to Rs. 81 and Rs. 40 respectively. If a member did not pay his monthly subscription for one year, he was not entitled to vote at the time of elections. If he did not pay for two years, his name was removed from the list of members).
Mohyal Mitter Subscription
Yearly, in advance 2 650
From students and from those earning
less than Rs.20/- per month 1 325
Except for small rent from two shops at Mohyal Ashram, all the income of the GMS was only from voluntary donations and subscription.
Now, in reverse, let us see how much the fees prescribed by the GMS at present for permanent membership and subscription for Mohyal Mitter would have been equivalent to, value-wise, in those times. The table below is revealing:
Current Rates Old Value
Patron 21,000 65
Pratisht Member 11,000 34
GMS Life Member 2,100 Rs. 6 and annas 8
Mohyal Mitter Annual Subscription 50 annas 2 and 5 pies
It is left to all our brothers and sisters to draw their own conclusion as to whether the fees being charged these days are high, taking into consideration the quantum of salaries and income people are earning. A clerk in olden times was getting a salary of around Rs. 20/- per month only.

don’t lock- up your child’s future
Becoming aware of the warning signs of learning disabilities and getting children the necessary help early can be the key to a child’s future.
Learning disabilities affect one in seven people, according to the National Institute of Health.
Therefore, there is a need to be familiar with the early signs of a learning disability, in order to get the right help as soon as possible.
A learning disabled child is one, whose level of academic achievement is lower than what would be expected on the basis of his or her intellectual potential.
These children have average, high average, even gifted intelligence, and look like any other children, but they have a hidden handicap.
They may have trouble in receiving information through listening or reading (dyslexia), or may struggle to express themselves verbally or in writing (dysgraphia). In addition, many may have difficulty in spelling and, probably in mathematics (dyscalculia). Many learning disablad children may exhibit these traits. At the same time, every child need not show every trait.
There are several early warnings or signs commonly associated with learning disabilities between the pre-school years and fourth grade.
l Late talking compared to other children
l Pronunciation problem
l Slow vocabulary growth, often unable to find the right words.
l Trouble in learning numbers, alphabets and days of the weeks.
l Extremely restless and easily distracted.
l Trouble interacting with peers.
l Poor ability to follow directions or routine.
fourth grade symptoms
l Slow to learn the connection between letters and sound.
l Confuses basic words (run, eat).
l Makes consistent reading-and-spelling errors, including letter reversals (b/d), inversions (m/w), transpositions (felt/left), substitutions (home/house)
l Transposes number sequences and confuses arithmetic signs (+,-,x,=).
l Slow to learn new skills.
l Lack of planning.
l Great deal of trouble learning to tell time.
l Cannot write his/her name, tie his/her shoes, button his/her shirt.
l Unstable pencil grip.
If children display any of these symptoms, one shouldn’t be rude to them. Patience and understanding can facilitate their learning process.

Introduction of New-comers: The following members of the community, who were attending the meeting for the first time, introduced themselves:
Shri S.K. Dutta, Barara
Shri Baldev Datta, Barara
Shri Varinder Pal Singh Bali, Barara.
Shri Jogadhya Mehta, Barara.
Shri Sandeep Mehta (s/o Shri J.P. Mehta, Secretary GMS) Hong Kong.
Master Rishabh Mehta (Grandson of Shri J.P. Mehta) Hong Kong.
Shri R.K. Bali Advocate Delhi.
Shri Ajay Bali of Delhi Police Delhi.
Confirmation of Minutes: The Secretary General read out the minutes of the meeting held on the 8th June 2008, which were confirmed, with a few minor amendments.
Speaking about the minutes, Shri Ashwani Bali mentioned that his suggestion regarding study by a GMS Team, of the occupation pattern in the Mohyal Ashram, between Mohyals and non-Mohyals, related to the months of June and July only, which were the peak periods of occupancy there.
Shri S.N. Datta stated that 7-8 rooms in the Ashram were normally kept reserved by the GMS for allotment to Mohyals, but these have to be booked at least a day in advance, otherwise these could be allotted to non-Mohyals, who request for accommodation, as it is not in the interest of the GMS to keep the rooms vacant. Shri S.N. Datta added that instructions have also been issued to the Manager of the Mohyal Ashram, that allotment of more than three rooms to a single party should be done only with the prior approval of the GMS.
With regard to prior booking of rooms in the Ashram, a complaint was voiced that the landlines at the Ashram remained either out of order, or the staff there were not responding to telephone calls. While it was agreed that the staff would be warned for deliberately not answering telephone calls, it was felt that there was the genuine problem of the landlines remaining out of order, due to bad weather. It was, therefore, decided that a cordless telephone of either Tata Indicom or Reliance, could be procured for the Ashram, which will not be affected by the weather. (A Tata Indicom telephone has since been purchased for the Ashram.and the Number is 9219441137.)
Employment Data in the GMS Website: Arising out of the minutes, Dr. Rattan Datta informed that there was quite a good response from the youth of the community to this initiative and that 15 applications had so far been received on the website, in the proforma published, seeking suitable employment, some of them even from abroad– Philippines.
Presentation of Accounts: The Secretary General presented the statement of accounts for the month of May 2008 and highlighted the main items of expenditure and income under the different heads of account. The accounts were approved by the house.
Quarterly Matrimonial Get-together: Smt. Amba Bali informed that the Quarterly Matrimonial Get-together at the Mohyal Bhawan, Inderpuri, had evoked a very good response, with a large number of people from far-off places also – some even from abroad - participating in the same. A few alliances were reportedly finalised therein. The general reaction of the participants was very positive.
Elaborating further on this, Smt. Krishan Lata Chhibber stated that about 100 persons had participated in the get-together, leading to many alliances being finalized. The Secretary General, GMS, attended the Get-together along with his wife, as an Observer. The parents/guardians of boys and girls had praised the GMS for providing such a platform, which has so far resulted in 31 alliances, including those of three divorcees, being finalized. She, however, lamented the fact GMS was not being informed of the alliances being finalized, as a result of the GMS initiatives, including matrimonial advertisements in the Mohyal Mitter and the get-togethers. She requested the parents/guardians concerned to invariably inform the GMS of these, so that the records could be updated. Even a simple post card would do, even if a formal invitation could not be sent.
She also exhorted the local sabhas to extend their co-operation for the proposed new initiative of the GMS, viz., ‘Samuhik Vivah’ and give wide publicity to the same in their respective jurisdiction(s).
Picnic by Mohyal Sabha Toronto: The Secretary General informed that the newly formed Mohyal Sabha at Toronto (Canada), was organizing a picnic on the 30th August 2008 and had extended an invitation to all Mohyals, through the pages of the Mohyal Mitter. He added that GMS will be represented at the picnic by its Senior Vice President, Shri O.P. Mohan, who is planning to leave for Canada on the 3rd August 2008.
According to Shri Gaurav Mohan, who is the Chief Organiser, and the brain behind the picnic, about 100 Mohyals had participated in a similar picnic last year and the expectation this year was that this number would swell to 200.
Prayer for Speedy Recovery: The house prayed for the speedy recovery of Shri Dalip Singh Datta, President, MS Yamunapaar, who had recently undergone Angioplasty, and Shri B.D. Datta, who had played a crucial role in the construction of Phase I of the Mohyal Foundation Building and his wife, Smt. Savitri Datta, who used to collect large donations for the GMS.

They Made the Community Proud:
(1) Shri Gaurav Mohan: This young man, hailing from Lambra, Jalandhar, is keeping the Mohyal flag flying high in far-away Canada. He, single-handedly, had brought together the Mohyals of Canada and recently formed the Mohyal Sabha at Toronto, which has been affiliated to the GMS. He had successfully organized a picnic of Mohyals in Canada last year and proposes to do so again this year also, on the 30th August 2008. According to him, his inspiration has been Shri Pushap Bali of Jalandhar, Mohyal Gaurav and GMS MC Member, who needs no introduction. Shri Gaurav Mohan is getting married in early October this year, in India, and, being a staunch Mohyal, his future partner will also be a Mohyal. The marriage has been arranged through the Matrimonial Mela organized by the GMS last year.
(2) Dr. Ashok Lav, Hindi Editor (MM) and GMS MC Member, has been honoured by the American Biographical Institute, by nominating him to receive the prestigious World Medal of Freedom, a global distinction, which is awarded to only 50 persons from around the world, in a year.
(3) Bhai Mangal Sain Chhibber of Meerut was honoured at the All India Tyagi Samman Samaroh on the 20th April 2008, for his co-operation with the Brahmarishi Mahasangh.
(4) Ku. Sonali Datt and Shri Sahil Datt, daughter and son of Shri Rajneesh Datt and Smt. Rupali Datt of JCT Hoshiarpur, received Black Belts in Taek-won-do from Seoul (South Korea). Ku. Sonali Datt also stood first in the state-level competition in Mental Mathematics (ABACUS), held at Jalandhar, on the 25th May 2008.
(5) On his retirement as JE, Department of Microwave Communication, Northern Railways, on the 30th June 2008, Shri Vinay Bali of Janakpuri was awarded a Gold Medal by the Chief Engineer, Northern Railways, in recognition of his 37 years’ meritorious service.
Major KR Bali Mohyal Nursery School, Dehradun: The Secretary General informed that the school has become popular and the student strength during the coming academic year was likely to be around 100. Since the building housing the school was in a bad shape, it had to be repaired and renovated, for which the estimated expenditure was Rs. 2 lakhs. The work was being got done by procuring material, and hiring labour.
Get-together by MS Panipat: MS Panipat had turned the visit of the GMS Interaction Committee led by Shri G.L. Datta ‘Josh’ on the 6th July 2008, as a Mohyal Get-together, which was attended by Shri Ashwani Bali, Shri Yogesh Mehta, Dr Ashok Lav, Shri J.P. Mehta, Shri Aswani Bakshi, Shri S.N. Datta. It was the brainchild of Shri Rit Mohan, Workind President MS Panipat.
Dr. Ashok Lav described the function as well-organised and hugely successful, attended by over 150 Mohyals. Shri G.L. Datta ‘Josh’ had given a brief speech about the activities of GMS. Dr. Ashok Lav gave the credit for the success of the function to Shri Rit Mohan.
Shri Rit Mohan stated his aim was to strengthen the GMS, and that he had been inspired in this regard by Shri Gaurav Mohan of Canada. He proposed to visit Toronto during Diwali time and would invite a delegation from there to visit the GMS. They can easily donate Rs. 10 lakhs each to the GMS and, if 10 persons do so, it will mean a sizeable addition to the GMS funds.
Speaking about the organizing ability of Shri Rit Mohan, Shri C.K. Bhai informed that the Haryana State Badminton Association had conducted a programme in Panipat on the 12th July 2008 and, the very next day, i.e., the 13th July 2008, morning, Shri Rit Mohan had managed the inauguration of the Panipat District Badminton Association.
Financial Aid for Shri Narinder Bakshi: Shri S.N. Datta regretted that, despite the Appeal for donations for the medical treatment of Shri Narinder Bakshi, suffering from kidney ailment, having been published in the Mohyal Mitter of July 2008, not a single donation had been received by the GMS so far. He himself donated Rs. 5000/- for the purpose and appealed to all Mohyals to donate whatever was within their means.
The Secretary General informed that there had been good response for such appeals in the past and he had no doubt that, in this case also, donations will be forthcoming. The Appeal had been published in the MM of July 2008, which would have reached the subscribers only recently and it was too early to expect the donations to come in so quickly.
However, there was immediate response from those present to Shri S.N. Datta’s appeal and many came forward with their donations. (These, together with the donation of Rs. 5000 from Shri S.N. Datta, totaling Rs. 11,000/-, was sent to the family by the GMS.)
The meeting came to an end thereafter, after Shanti Path, led by Smt. Krishan Lata Chhibber, with a vote of thanks to the Chair.

the painful memories
life long agony of bleeding hearts
The Two Momentous dates–Thirty first day of August and Twentieth day of September are very significant, vital and crucial in the distressed lives of both myself and my wife Smt. Sita Dutta. The first date is our beloved daughter late Dr. Suman Mehta’s Birthday and the Second–20th Sept.- the saddest day on which she left for her heavenly abode. The short gap of barely three weeks between the two dates, abruptly and completely changed our once glorious lives into perpetually shattered ones.
Even though yet another gloomy year has passed since her departure on 20th Sept., 2006, it still looks as if it happened only yesterday. In fact, we are finding it very difficult to convince ourselves even today that she is no more with us. She was the cynosure of our eyes and we direly miss her every moment. No doubt we put up bold faces and outwardly appear to be living our normal lives. But when and how we both grieve, sob, lament, weep and shed tears together or separately, this no one else knows–not even our dearest ones.
It is indeed God Almighty’s Graciousness that such an angelic child was born in Middle Class Family of AAM AADMI like us and we were privileged to be her proud parents. She grew up like a normal child within our limited means. I had wished from the very inception that my son should be an Engineer and daughter to be a Doctor. My both wishes were granted. The son is an Engineer and the daughter passed out as a Doctor from the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).
Suman was gifted to be a great achiever in all her life and in all spheres.
(i) Personal life.
(ii) Professional Academic Attainments.
(iii) Professional Career.
She was married to Shri Surinder Kumar Mehta, equally highly talented, qualified, promising and well settled in his service career. He proved to be an Ideal husband, loving, caring and extremely cooperative. They led a very happy married life.
Suman’s real latent potential, her talents, high caliber and capabilities actually came to surface only from thence onwards. She resumed hard studies and acquired Post Graduate qualifications in different fields. Finally, she obtained Doctorate-Phd.–from the reputed John Hopkins in USA, professionally she was very highly qualified.
Suman had a brilliant Professional career. While serving with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Delhi, she was picked up by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and posted to their Hq at Geneva. Thenceforth she progressed quickly to take on wider roles. After she had served with WHO for a few years, she was picked up by the United Nations– UN-FPA for their family planning and population control projects in Thailand (Bangkok). She was then moved to another crucial sector as Head of the HIV/AIDS cluster under UN/AIDS at New York. Finally she was moved as Dy. Director to UN/AIDS at HQ at Geneva.
Suman travelled extensively, virtually all over the Globe, dedicatedly serving the humanity at large, by spreading awareness about the gravity of HIV/AIDS, measures for prevention and spread thereof and providing guidelines and proper treatment as also follow-up action thereon. She made indelible contribution to UN/AIDS and to the Noble mission. She was highly respected and was held in high esteem by all the countries she visited and by the Organization she served.
The UN/AIDS in perpetuation of her memory have named their New Conference Hall at their HQ at Geneva as
Dr. Suman Mehta
and her large size photograph is displayed in the centre.
On her this Birthday on Thirty first August, we are unable to convey our greetings and deep sentiments by any means. But we console ourselves by expressing these “Painful Memories’’. We nevertheless send our blessings to her wheresoever and in whatsoever form she is. The vacuum caused shall never ever be filled during our lifetime. Besides us and the family members, the greatest sufferers are her husband S.K. Mehta and her two beloved daughters Dr. Deepali Bhanot and Dr. Akanksha Mehta in USA who suddenly stand bereft of deepest love, affection, care, support and guidance whilst they still have miles to go in their life.
Sada Rehnay Kay Leeyay
Yahan Koi Naheen Aata
Per Jaisy Tum Gaiee Ho
Koyee Naheen Jaata
We the aggrieved parents on her birthday contribute Rupees One Lakh to be added to the existing “Dr. Suman Mehta Memorial Trust” dedicated for higher education of deserving girls only.

stepping stone to a higher life
Faith in the immortality of the soul is the eternal truth. For death is but a sleep and a forgetting event in one’s life. It is a stepping stone to a higher life. Have the strength to bear the loss and find comfort in the thought that we have ultimately to go.
G.M.S. expresses its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and prays to God to grant eternal peace to the departed souls and strength to their families to bear with fortitude their irreparable loss.

In the evening, the Defence Colony residents assembled at the Park and paid homage to Lt. Datt by lighting candles around his Memorial.
An extract from the Special Battalion Order of the day, published by the First Battalion, The Gorkha Rifles on the occasion, is reproduced below with the hope that the resolve, tenacity and dare-devilry shown by Lt. Puneet Nath Datt will motivate the coming generations to emulate his indomitable spirit and selfless devotion to the commitment of preserving the independence and integrity of the motherland for which he willingly sacrificed his life at such a young age.
“On 20th July 1997 while combating Pak-sponsored terrorism in the Kashmir Valley, 1/11 GR launched ‘OP Nowshera’ in Srinagar, based on hard intelligence gathererd by Lt. Puneet Nath Datt. As per the information, a group of foreign militants had fortified themselves in a three-storied house with a high compound wall all around. On being surrounded by troops led by Lt. Datt, the militants brought down heavy and effective fire on the troops. An intense exchange of fire took place following which the militants opened a point of exit at the rear of the house. Lt. Puneet realizing that some of the trapped militants were attempting to escape, quickly adjusted his position. The militants charged out of the house, firing incessantly. Lt. Puneet fired his AK-47 killing two militants in a most audacious eyeball to eyeball encounter.
The third militant brought down heavy automatic fire on to the officer hitting him directly on the face. Bleeding profusely but unmindful of the grave injury, Lt. Puneet, in a gallant move, lobbed a grenade through the window killing the third militant. The officer had by now killed the three hardcore foreign militants single-handedly and destroyed a well-fortified hideout. He finally succumbed to his injuries in this action.’’

fear / worry
Even if there is real danger, fear does not help. Remember, fear of a happening is 100 times worse than the happening itself. In 90% of the cases, the event feared may not happen at all. Do not fear– it is fear that helps things (adverse force) to come. Do not doubt it is doubt that helps it to come. Do not expect it in anyway- it is expectation that helps it to come.
Shake off all narraowness, selfishness, limitations and wake to the conciousness of human unit. This is the only way to achieve peace and harmony.
In my life, I have found there are two things about which I should never worry. First, I should not worry about the things I cannot change. If I cannot change them, worry is certainly most foolish and useless. Second, I should not worry about the things I can change. If I can change them, then taking action will accomplish far more than wasting my energies in worry give worry its rightful place out of your life. When you can’t change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails.
