Udaybhaskar Nair, Chairman- Nairsons Group with a proposal to provide free food service to genuine needy relatives of patients who are admitted at OCHRI. This lunch/ dinner box will have 3 rotis, Dal, Rice and Sabji. This will be provided in steel containers which have to returned back by relatives after washing to PRO office.

Dr. Anup Marar, Director- OCHRI commended this goodness existing in society and being upheld by Dehadrey Parivaar. He quoted that different Sadhanas are prescribed in our scriptures for different ages. Tapa (penance) is recommended for Krita age, Gyan (knowledge) for Treta age, Yagnya (sacrifice) for Dwapara age and Daan (Charity) for Kali (present) age. Of all the charities, giving food is the best one. Anna-daan is the best of all merits.

BC Forbes quoted that “Employers, have you ever stopped to reckon what the goodwill of your workers is worth? … In most large concerns it would be worth more in dollars and cents to have the goodwill of the working force than of those on the outside. It has been repeatedly demonstrated that the average working force is capable of increasing its production 25% or more whenever the workers fell so inclined. Workers animated by ill will cannot possibly give results equal to those of workers animated by goodwill.” It is heartening to see ex-employees revisiting our Institute to appreciate their section, review its working and meet old colleagues. Sr. Michael who had retired as Nursing Incharge-OCHRI Operation Theatre Complex was instrumental in laying the foundation of various processes which has led to its recognition amongst surgeons as an excellent functioning OT Complex. She had since then shifted to USA and is now a US citizen. Recently after 5 years she paid a courtesy visit to OCHRI and met all of us. It is rightly said by Marshall Field that Goodwill is the only asset that competition cannot undersell or destroy.

Farewell, my sister, fare thee well.

The elements be kind to thee, and make

Thy spirits all of comfort: fare thee well.
