The members of PN NagaraSamiti, exhibited excellent team-work , with their involvement and participation in all the programs.
It is to be noted that this Samiti was started 19 years back and is operating at the same premises since then. This was the initiative taken by Sr. TR Srikanta, Mrs. Janaki Srikanta and family..a decision to utilize the first floor of their residence for Swami’s activities… Over these years several activities continue to be conducted here and the samiti has grown in strength under the leadership and guidance of Sri. TR Srikanta.
Recently, the family decided to add the second floor to this building. This full-fledged floor got completed in all respects recently. This floor too, has been dedicated for Swami’s activities by the family.
The first major event in this floor was the Sai Satyanarayana Pooja, conducted on 2/4.
All participants appreciated and acknowledged the dedication, devotion and determination of Sri. Srikanta and family….a Sai Samiti, born out of this gesture of Sri. Srikanta and family.
