The drive of Hindu youth at UT, their simple sense of clarity in execution, their choice of briefest of words to explain a requirement, the most pleasant way of communicating the project was such a pleasure to watch. The combination of these resulted in the young team raising funds for the project, ordering the Murtis from India and getting them installed at the Campus. We Dwarapalakas take immense happiness in congragulating the team of Himanshi Sehgal, Niharikaa Aiyar, Rishabh Mundhra, Atharva Gokhale, Anvesh Jai, Nitya Gulati, Hitisha Solanki, Anvi Nagpa & Aditi Bhatia in executing this divine work.
On a religio-philisophical note we can say that a opportunity to be part of Temple or Murti installation is perhaps once in a life time opportunity for any Hindu. The fact that this young team was part of this is a validation of the blessings that they came with into the world. We pray for good health, well being ahead, and are sure they would continue to enrich the world with their inbuilt blessings. Though there are dark forces around, Hindu youth of Canada offer hope and promise ahead. We trust that this would be a motivation for Hindu students in Campuses across Canada.
Mr.Richard Chambers,below sounds like a fine person and it would be exciting to interact with him. On behalf of Dwarapalakas we offer him our sincere congratulations and best wishes.May his tribe cherish and in the process, nourish the earth.
