It is with deep regret and sadness that we have to inform the sad news of ‘Arihantsaran’ of our member –  BACHULAL DAYALJI MEHTA - Age 79 - who passed away on 2O/12.  He was the husband of our member CHAMPABEN MEHTA. Bachulal had been our member since Kendra’s inception.  We pray to Lord Mahavir to rest the deceased’s soul in eternal peace and to give courage to the family to bear the loss with fortitude.  Our sincere condolences to Champaben and all family members.   
OM SHANTI        SHANTI                SHANTI
We will observe a minute’s silence to pray for the departed’s soul.
RIP Bachulal
