Tribute to Late Shashikant Mohanlal Mehta 2nd April 1936 - 18th April 2021 

 

Pranam and Jai Jinendra 


Shashikantbhai was the founder of Jyoti Ice Cream and godfather of Bechardas Mohanla  and pioneered the dairy industry in Mumbai for more than 9 decades. He was active and self-reliant until the last days of his final journey. Shashikantbhai used resources at his disposal for benevolent causes, positively impacting many lives, as well as derasar activities. The entire Mehta family, led by Hemant and Ketan Shashikant Mehta along with grand daughter Sweta Dhyanesh Bagadia would like to dedicate this Bhavana in the memory of the pillar of Mehta family and for all those impacted by this COVID-19.

 

The second wave of COVID-19 has impacted the lives of not just many individuals but also many families in India. Let us all come together and pray for those who need prayers to win against this pandemic in these tough times and also remember the ones who have left for Arihant Sharnu.

 

Please join us for this special bhavna on Friday and together pray for the quick recovery of those who are fighting COVID-19 and for giving strength to those who are recovering from the loss of their loved ones.

Nirmal Kumar Sethi (1941-2021)

Jain Center of Northern California conveys their deepest condolences on the demise of Shri Nirmal Kumarji Jain Sethi.

Nirmal Kumarji was the President of Shri Bharatvarshiya Digambar Jain Mahasabha. His life mission was to explore and spread Jainism within and outside India. He visited many countries, funded research, conducted seminars & webinars, invited scholars from different countries, dedicated all his life and savings for Jainism. 

Nirmalji visited our Jain Center (JCNC) multiple times. He stands as an extraordinary persona in today’s world. Nirmalji took a deep interest in Jain archaeology.

Nirmalji was of an extremely simple nature and emblem of humanity. We are short of words to explain what a great loss it is to the entire Jain society, especially for the Digambar Jain Samaj he is irreplaceable.

We convey our sincere condolences to everyone at Shri Bharatvarshiya Digambar Jain Mahasabha.  

Let us pray for Nirmal Kumarji. He will be truly missed.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

JCNC COVID India Fund

JCNC PR
 

Jai Jinendra,


 “Live and allow others to live; life is dear to all living beings! Lord Mahavir”


 The situation in India is dire. The country is witnessing perhaps the worst Covid crisis any nation has suffered since the pandemic began, with hospitals overflowing and desperate people dying in line waiting to see doctors — and mounting evidence that the actual death toll is far higher than officially reported. India is running desperately low on supplies, including oxygen and protective gear, as a deadly new variant is thought to be behind a rise in cases.

 

JCNC has always risen in times of natural calamities in India. We are rising again to support India based reputed organizations for the supply of medicines, therapeutics, test kits, ventilators, protective gears, oxygen concentrators, family supports, etc.

 

For this noble cause JCNC Board has set up a Covid India Fund. Your Board is working on the disbursement guidelines and identifying right Organizations. Soon we will share this information with the community.

 

Please do what you can to help the people who need our help.  We appeal to you to donate generously to JCNC Covid India Fund.  Donations made to JCNC are also Tax deductible. Double your Donations, check with your employer for company matching. Ease of Giving - multiple ways to pay – PayPal, Zelle, Check, Wire transfer. See below for payment options.
