Meditation Center & Library at Sood Bhawan Our Sabha has taken a giant and a path breaking step by establishing a Meditation Centre and Library at Sood Bhawan Chandigarh which was inaugurated by Rev. Smt. Sushila Doegar wife of late Shri Jagdish Ram Doegar former President and Patron of the Sabha on 19th July, 2009. She represents those senior members of the Sood Community who, 50 years ago, took a thoughtful decision and laid the foundation of Sood Sabha in the then nascent city of Chandigarh. In the Golden Jubilee Year we paid tributes to all those stalwarts and sought their blessings by getting the Meditation Centre inaugurated at the gracious hands of Rev. Smt.Doegar. A Library has also been added to the Centre where inspirational and motivational books written by some of the eminent writers and thinkers are available for study. Besides, religious books will also be added. The main objective is that we make Sood Bhawan a place where such social activities are also undertaken which create harmony, brotherhood and peace in the Society. It will provide an opportunity to spend some time in the serene and calm environments. Establishing a Meditation Centre and Library are no doubt a positive step in that direction keeping in mind the over all objectives of the Sabha. The Inaugural function was presided over by Hon’ble Justice N. K. Sud, Lokayukt, Haryana who is a beacon of inspiration for us. On this occasion one hour programme of devotional songs was presented by Shri Vinod Sood a well known singer at Chandigarh who kept the audience spell bound with his melodious presentation. Mrs.Santosh Kalra, Retired Principal Govt. College for Women Chandigarh emphasized the significance and benefits of meditation. Speeches of both Justice Sud and Mrs. Kalra are being published in this issue of Sood Sandesh.
