Condolences and your new positive steps

Dear Maitreyee,

I and all GHA members express our condolences to you in connection with the loss of your beloved son. We understand the depth of your loss and we share your suffering and pray for it and for you. Our letter of condolence is published o­n your p/page: https://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=317

However, life goes o­n and o­ne must be firm before its blows. It is necessary to continue an active creative life and active support of the GHA in all its peacemaking actions. We highly appreciate your strong positive support of the GHA, which we always need. You wrote to us o­nce that you are completing a book o­n the inequality of women at your Women's University in Calcutta. Have you completed it? Could you send its o­nline address if it is published or send the most important fragment from it to publish it in the GHA new book "Gandhicracy"?

Another question. Have you read my/GHA interview in the wonderful international Magazine "World Growth Forums" (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=964)? What do you think of this wonderful publication? Do you like it? Could you share it with your university community, women's organizations and your networks? This will allow you to get away from your grief and be useful to the approval of the Gandhian ideas of global peace through the harmony of spherons, in the promotion of which you have been participating in the GHA for more than 12 years, if not more.

Soon I will recommend for the GHA-India President post a young active women journalist from Delhi, who shares and actively promotes the Gandhian values. I hope for your support of this candidacy. But I will report o­n this in more detail later. The GHA-India branch cannot remain without a leader after the death of our great Dr. Chandra.

With love, best wishes for you good health and peace from the Gandhian spherons harmony,

Dear Leo

Congratulations to you for all that you have achieved and allowed us to share the sea.
I must mention to you here that I have lost my son o­n Wednesday who was a handicapped person and was the creator of my Beautiful Mind. He is 31 years now. This is the maximum age of a Cerebral Palsy Person. He gave us enormous happiness in life. Also, we never ignored him for his disability. He was our playmate forever. For the last 8months during the lockdown period, he was with me and gave heavenly life to me. Please pray to God that wherever he is he keeps everybodyhappy in the same way as that as me.
Thank you.

Subject: Prayer for the transfer of Association Membership fees to the Children’s Organization.



We are running a parental Organization for the disable children. The name of the Organization is 'Beautiful Mind'. It is in Kolkata India. The Organization came up in 2004 December. However the registration of the Organization was done in Sep-2005. It's a new organization and is running by the contribution of the parents and from the selling of cards and other paper materials made by the children of the Organization. It would be the great help for us, if the Association membership fees for 2008 will be transferred to our Organization for rendering help to our children. All documents required for the purpose is enclosed.


Thank you,


Yours truly.

Donations are also welcomed. Children, all students and disabled persons are exempt from the membership fees. The membership fees are paid in November - December each year. The annual membership fees are directed to its first and major project: "Making children a priority in the world", by transfer of membership fees in o­ne of the developing countries to meet the needs of poor and disabled children. It will be a symbol of the Association’s aspiration to social harmony by starting with children and through children. This process is set out in the Association’s separate document: "Order of transfer of the Association membership fees to children in need". The members who have paid fees are recognized as full members. Other members are recognized as potential members (or members-candidates). o­nly full members can be the members of the Association’s Committees. All questions of membership are resolved by the Board Association.

Your membership fee will be a personal contribution to a noble cause for the disabled children and social harmony.
