"!! Om Shri Sai Ram !!"  


Firstly, I bow my head to the lotus feet of Lord Shirdi Sai Baba. It is necessary to mention here that I am a simple Photo-Journalist hailing from Nadia District in West Bengal. In the year 1999, the dream of Shirdi Sai Baba changed my life in the most unimaginable way. I had never thought that I would play an active part in working with the village folk to build a  temple of Shirdi Sai Baba at Shibpur P.O. Shibpur P.S. Nakashipara District Nadia Pin Code No. 741191, West Bengal.

Secondly, I myself have become a staunch devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba and dedicated my whole life to the development of religious and spiritual minds of people. I am also working towards growing the spirit of brotherhood among people in various communities irrespective of caste and creed. With the blessings of Sai Baba and in an effort to better organize these efforts, I have formed and registered a Society with fellow devotees under the name of “NADIA SHIBPUR SAI SADGURU SAMITY” and have started spiritual and religious activities to assist the poor villagers in this district.

Thirdly, with the help and assistance of society members and devotees from around the world, we have completed building two sections of the temple and are currently working on building a temple for the fiber glass Shibpur Sai Baba statue. Almost all the residents of the village of Shibpur participate in the daily worship (aarti and puja) of Sai Baba.

Fourthly, we have started rendering all possible assistance to underprivilaged meritorious students to help them continue their education and to poor patients for quality treatment. Throughout the year we run awareness programmes on child labour, bio-fertiliser, dowry, polio, HIV/AIDS, child health, snake bites, leprosy, environment etc. We have decided to start an Animal Hospital and computer course oriented school to help village students learn new skills.

Lastly my heartfelt decision to run the temple of Shirdi Sai Baba with the slogan “ONE GOD GOVERNS ALL” keeping the slogan in front of me, I follow SAI SOUL AND SOIL. I hope that this slogan touches the heart of people who will continue to live in peace and harmony. I have to spread the essence of the teaching of Shirdi Sai Baba and his blessings amongst the people at Shibpur a remote village in Nadia district. My life is fully comitted to living this vision and mission and I take shelter in the lotus feet of Shirdi Sai Baba as a whole to gather overall peace in life.
