RECAP of the Award Ceremony BY Mr.Chandrasekar :
It was an event attended by retired IAS officers, Chief Secretary UP, Chief Secretary Rajya Sabha, Chief of Ficci , Members/ Volunteers of Nexus Of Good and others. Lighting of the lamp by the Chief guest and other dignitaries was followed by speeches by the Chairperson of Nexus of Good , Chief Guest and others.
A jury had selected organizations / individuals across the country in 8 categories: Education, Health & Wellness (DOBARA), Agriculture, Community Service, Administration & Governance, Women Empowerment., Environment, and Mental Health .
Awards were announced and collected.
Excellent Vote of thanks in shudh hindi (no Hyderabadi would have understood a word!!) Followed by high tea. Of course as a Hyderabadi I had Chai.
A booklet giving details of the Awardees and their contribution was released. I have a copy.
It was a wonderful event filled with goodness and cheer. One of the speakers made an excellent thought provoking statement "'When rascals and scoundrels can get together and make people's life miserable, why can't good people get together to spread goodness and make people's life wonderful."'
The motive of this organization, Nexus of Good, is to spread goodness and appreciate individuals/organizations spreading goodness.
We are so honored and happy to receive this award for the work we all so love doing at DOBARA. Our goal is to promote Senior Wellbeing, Healthy and Active Ageing and to do our best to keep loneliness and isolation at bay for our seniors, juniors and in-betweeners. Our DOBARA Members and Volunteers have been consistently 'Filling the Gap' wherever they see the need and wherever they can step in and by doing so, they have filled the world with so much love and light! Thank you to our entire DOBARA Community for your support and encouragement, this award belongs to us all! BRAVO DOBARA !
