In memory of his greatness...

Not sure whether I should wait to finalise things before I post anything.
I guess I just feel like I want to post my progress as I go along – which should keep me on my toes and hopefully get some good ideas/input from anyone reading the Sati blog.

July 18th 2006 will mark one year since the day Dad left for greener pastures elsewhere.
To commemorate this, with Guruji’s grace, we have come up with a few interesting (I hope) ideas.

1. Classical Concert
In his memory, we are hoping to organise a charity event to raise money for the cause that Dad so strongly believed in – free Ayurvedic treatment for those who cannot afford it.
Dad studied/volunteered at an Ayurvedic hospital in Mumbai – this will be the most appropriate charity as Dad spoke highly of the work that they are doing there.

2. Skydive
Dad was a bit of a dare devil – so I guess it would be most appropriate if I do a skydive in his memory! This will be an opportunity for individuals who are unable to attend the Classical Concert, but would like to donate money to this worthwhile cause.

Please do leave any comments/ideas – your input will be truly appreciated.


More details to follow...

Both really nice ideas Preet, tho the second one is a bit hairy-scary nutta :P If you're asking us to choose then I'd say go for the first because it serves more than one purpose. Best wishes for your efforts... (",)

ps. I think your pops would be very proud of you.

Thanks you so much for your good wishes. We will need all your support and good wishes for this event to be a success.

Both are great ideas, concert is even better since many people will be involved and able to commemorate your father's sweet memory. Let us know if we can be of any help. Guroo Ang Sang.
