Mr. Roshan Lal taught Hindi at BCS from 1960 to 1985 and was also the warden at Remove for many years. Now 84, Mr. Roshan Lal is in ill health and is in dire need of financial assistance.
Several OCs have recently been up to the village near Palampur [Himachal Pradesh, India] where he lives and moved him to better housing/accommodation, have got him medical attention, provided him with funds to take care of immediate needs, and have also set up a bank account from where a monthly amount will be disbursed for his needs.
Many OCs have already contributed towards this good cause. We will list the names and contributions once we have tracked them all.
OCs Karan Sarin and Arun Sawhney have been actively involved in making arrangements at Palampur and mobilizing funds.
