Offering my most humble and reverential salutations to my most Beloved Master, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, I extend my most sincere venerations and greetings to all. This is the 3rd Annual Report of our Organisation and the Trust. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Sri. V. Srinivasan, our respected All India President and to Sri Shyamal Sur, our loving State President for being for being the guiding force and mentor, and also for empowering me with the task of writing this Foreword. At this juncture, I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about the Organisation which is well spread all over India and has its Central Office at Prasanthi Nilayam, in Anantpur District, Andhra Pradesh.Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation is a service organisation with a spiritual core and base founded by Sri Sathya Sai Baba for the benefit of all mankind. It is emphasized that the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation is not a religious organisation. The organisation has its motto as “Transforming lives to transform the World” which is fulfilled and attained through practice of the maxim given by Sathya Sai Baba - “Love All Serve All” and “Help Ever Hurt Never”. It serves as a platform for all to practice the aforesaid dictum to become pure and good human being by loving and serving more and more people by engaging in various selfless activities. This is the Way Forward for mankind to achieve Universal Peace and realize the purpose of human existence.The Organisation is open to any individual, who has faith in the Almighty God, and is willing to lead a righteous life and serve mankind selflessly and abide by the rules and regulations of the organisation. Sri Sathya Sai Baba has gifted mankind with two state of the art super specialty hospitals, where world class treatment is offered to the poorest of the poor totally free of cost. He established a unique university that comprises four campuses offering quality education to students from Kindergarten to Post Graduate totally free of cost and has received 'A+' Grade accreditation by N.A.A.C. He brought pure drinking water to the hundreds of villages in Andhra Pradesh & Telengana, benefitting millions who were suffering for want of potable water.Sri Sathya Sai Baba has not only offered selfless service to the mankind but also inspired millions all over the globe to serve the society with educational, medical and social assistance.Following His example, the Organisation in West Bengal , which started around 45 years ago, is operational in all the 20 districts of the State and is working tirelessly to become useful and friendly to the society in the fields of education care, medical care, socio care, individual care, agricultural care with spirituality as the underlying base of all, not discriminating or differentiating on the basis of religion, race, nationality, cast, creed or sect by inviting all for the service of mankind with the conviction that Service to Man is Service to God. In West Bengal the Organisation is running in 167 samithis, 245 Bhajan Mandalis and 270 villages. Members are dedicatedly running 5 Sai Schools, several medical poly clinics, one Telemedicine Centre. Our brothers and sisters of Darjeeling have constructed several low cost drinking water projects in the hills of Darjeeling. Youth are the strength, asset, and most importantly the future and they are the force who can transform this World. We strongly urge the younger generation to come forward for the cause of global transformation by transforming their own lives.The year 2015 marks the significant milestones of 90th birth year of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and also the 50th Anniversary of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, India. To commemorate this important event and taking further His Mission in lines with His Vision, the Organisation has undertaken several initiatives for the benefit of needy and poor villagers. Nutrition: Mother & Child Care to fight malnutrition by providing nutrition supplements, Vocational Trainings Centers to enhance rural employability, providing training /awareness to village and urban youth on Disaster Management. If we have the courage to sacrifice and can dare to Love, God's grace will be limitless. Let us come forward together to love and sacrifice and to work ceaselessly in becoming able instruments in making the world a better place to live in. I humbly pray to my Master, Sri Sathya Sai Baba to bless and guide us in this task..
