The Karnataka United Sourashra Organisation is celebrating their 25th Annual Day as Silver Jubilee. They are real Sourashtrians from Porbandar, the birth place of Mahatma Gandhi, a divine place. He expressed his happiness to take part in this celebration.
He said the Sourashtrians are known for earning and giving to the community . They donate warm clothing in winter. Gandhiji dedicated his entire life to the nation. Our Sourashtrians, in spite of differences in language are the offsprings of the same Bharat Maata. They have drunk the same Mother's milk, but know the entire world.
The Sourashtra people earn by working hard. They give part of their earnings to the society as their duty. Sri Krishna helped his friend Sudama unasked, as he knew that Sudama was poor. Our people are like lions. I will tell you, only if we respect our women India will progress. We should give to all, even if some of them maybe bad. I bow to those who give.
