CHANDIGARH—If there are people with problems as “mistake” of God,, there are also people in the society who consider them as the “power” of God and who tirelessly work to provide relief which God could not do so. When winter in the city has its own flavor and romance for many that touches all our senses Sanjay Tandon and his family think otherwise. Recently, they have set an example of social responsibility towards people in distress.
Sanjay Tandon has set up a foundation– Balramji Dass Tandon Charitable Foundation– in his father’s name to carry forward the work of his father. Mr Prem Goyal, a senior social activist while speaking at a special camp organized by the Foundation to distribute free ration to the poor widows in the area appreciated the efforts.
The event was chaired by Haryana Vidhan Sabha Speaker Mr Gian Chand Gupta. During the camp the Foundation distributed free ration to 26 widows of the area and pledged to provide ration to them every month also.
A book in memory of Late Mr Balramji Das Tandon was also released at the event. The book is a collection of letters written by various leaders to pay tribute to his father during his political career
Addressing the public on the occasion, Prem Goyal said, he was pleased to see how the Tandon family has taken over to continue the various activities of social welfare as started by his father. He inspired his son Sanjay to donate blood on his birthday. In this way he very subtly motivated his son towards the social welfare activities.
Mr Gupta further said that distributing free ration to poor and needy widows was a commendable contribution for welfare underprivileged of the society. He went back to memory lane said that he has a very old connect with Balramji Das Tandon and today being part of this program he felt Balram was still alive through his ideas and values.
While speaking on the occasion, Sanjay Tandon said that he was inspired by the ideas and values of his father. He instituted a foundation to advance the social welfare activities started by his father. Program for annual memorial lecture has been formulated in association with Panjab University to inspire and spread wisdom from BalramJi Das Tandon’s life. First lecture in this series was organized on August 14 last at Panjab University Law Auditorium where Vice President M.V. Naidu addressed the public and made people aware about important ideas from Balramji Das Tandon’s life.
He appealed to the people to work for the section of society in distress as their responsibility. Even those who wanted to help the people in distress can contribute to the Foundation account No. 163801000684, IFSC Code: ICIC0001638 in ICICI Bank.
