FROM THE DESK OF PRESIDENT
From the Desk of President...
Last year we went through another lockdown although not as stringent as the first one but it has affected our sector rather drastically. Two consecutive lockdowns have affected us not only economically but also mentally owing to the dire changes in our lives.
We as an organisation have always strived to do all that is possible from our ends. In this crucial times, we together have to help each other and sustain this new global change. All this while we have conveyed our problems and demands to the deputy commissioner of our city and made sure they accepted our demands to the bestof their ability.
I along with the fellow members have tried to address an improve the eisting conditions at the vegetable market with respect to various issues such as traffic, etc.
As a part of our social responsibility we organised a COVID vaccination drive to safeguard the health and well being of our families and society at large. We are thankful to all of you for being responsible enough to get vaccinated and helping us fulfill our responsibility.
As I had promised earlier we also registered numerous new valuable members to be a part of our organisation and broaden our spectrum. I am sure they will contribute their bit for proper functioning an development of th organisation.
I would like to thank our former president Mr. Shridhar Uppin sir for helping me in all possible ways in my due course. Sir's work is truly commendable and I also get a chance to learn a lot from him. I would also like to as assure you that I will similarly help the forthcoming president and his office. I wish that they take our chamber to great heights.
Lastly i etend my heartfelt gratitude to all my fellow members, office bearers, members of the chamber and well wishers. I owe a debt of gratitude to all who have helped me carry out my resposibility and completing my duties as the president. I thank all of you for giving me this wonderful opportunity to serve you all and helping me carrying out my responsibility.
This pandemic has in its unique way taught us lot more in life than our lives itself. The forgotten value of gratefulness is com to forefront. We need to be grateful to ourselves that we have each other to share the joys, sorrows and hardships of life. We have to learn to face this pandemic, grow stronger than it find our own ways to thrive though it.
We as a part of chamber should always remember that Effectively, change is almost impossible without industry-wide-collaboration, co-operation, and consenses.
