Dear Vaibhav and Dr Kalia,<BR> Welcome to BRF. It was nice talking to you the other day. The supreme sacrifice of Capt Kalia has gone in the history books and the nation is proud of it.<BR> <BR> It was nice to know about the project you have started in the memory of martyr kalia. I have started talking to my friends about the project. I hopefully will visit you in Dec. I will also be visiting mata vaishno Devi aorund that time. How far is Palampur from there. Is there an airport near Palampur.<BR> <BR>I would love to arrange a medical/cardiology camp in Palampur. we can exchange further details off line if you desire.<BR> <BR>Please keep the forum memb updated if possible.<BR> <BR>Thank you Mr Mehta and I commend you for your efforts.<BR> <BR>Regards<BR>Subhash

hi Vaibhav,<P>I was thinking if there is chance to perform some kind of voluntary free service 'sewa' for the trust started by you and your father.<P>Anything, maybe helping in the construction, office work etc etc.... We owe it the memory of the fallen.<P>

Mehta<BR>New Member posted 22-06-2000 14:43 <BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR>Fellow <BR>I am new member of Bharat Rakshak Forum.<BR>From what I have read. I believe we are<BR>dedicated people who dearly love and adore<BR>our Motherland INDIA.<BR>I have correspondent with one of the administrator of the BR site and after getting an OK from him.<BR>I present you with an opportunity to help<BR>our Motherland.<BR>We all remember Amar Shaheed Capt. Saurabh Kalia.<BR>His father Dr.N.K.Kalia had posted an appeal on the India World site. Asking us to send emails to various Human Rights groups and Amnesty International to punish the people<BR>responsible for the crime done by them.<P>This year in March I had called Dr.Kalia <BR>to find out about any progress in Capt. S.Kalia case.<BR>Below is an email reply I got from Dr.Kalia.<BR>A brief summary of that email is that Dr.Kalia has started a trust. The purpose of this trust is to start and support a residental school in Palampur, HP.<BR>This school is for the Kids of the Martyr's who made the supreme sacirific for us and our Motherland.<BR>HP Govt has given 17 acres of land. Dr.Kalia himself has given 15Lakhs which he got from the Indian Army.<BR>For last 3 months I have been forwarding the following email to all my acquaitence.<BR>I know we are bunch of dedicated people and I am sure we will do our best in helping Dr.Kalia in his noble cause.<BR>The Trust Name is<BR>" CAPTAIN SAURABH KALIA MEMORIAL EDUCATIONAL & WELFARE TRUST"<P>Address is<BR>Dr. N.K. Kalia.<BR>Saurabh Nagar,<BR>Palampur-176061<BR>Himachal Pradesh<BR>Tel: +91 (01894) 32065<BR>Dated 24 March/ 29 March,2000<P>My dear Mehta Ji,<P>My grateful thanks for your calling yesterday and more so for your deep<BR>sense of belonging and remembrance.<P>As you have enquired about Amar Shaheed Capt Saurabh Kalia's case, I am to<BR>inform you that I have approached every National & International Human<BR>Rights Agencies includings our political leaders through letters/emails and<BR>personal contacts as far as possible but to no avail. They did not<BR>acknowledge those leave alone taking any action. I also appealed to hundreds<BR>of People who matter but without success. The Foreign Minister promised<BR>action but with no stipulated time period.<P>I approached all the Heads of States through their embassies but no positive<BR>action from any side so far.<P>If you wish, I can email you letters written to US President, Pak PM,<BR>Embassies etc.<P>With the experience so far, I am afraid our govt. would initiate any<BR>action on this issue. Sadly we are more INTERNATIONLIST than NATIONALIST.<BR>For our politicians, our brave soldiers are just NUMBERS. Our nation has to<BR>go a long way to reach standards of USA or Isreal while caring for their<BR>citizens and ensuring human rights .<P>Apart from this waging lone battle for ensuring Safety of our POWs in<BR>Pakistan employing all possible avenues with me, I am also in touch with<BR>the Army to get opened a Residential Army Public School mainly for the<BR>Children of Martyrs who gave their TOMORROW for our TODAY. We all owe a lot<BR>to these Martyrs. You would kindly agree with me that there is a lot of<BR>hypocrisy in our society. The so called relatives around the Martyrs eye<BR>only on the incentives money received by these families. Hardly any body<BR>cares for those not so fortunate children.<P>By opening a residential school around Palampur, I intend to act , so long I<BR>am alive,as their FATHER ensuring them emotional love and security at their<BR>tender age.Sensing the nobility of this Project, the Chief Minister,Himachal<BR>Pradesh has donated 17 acres of land for the school free of cost. When the<BR>Army Chief visited our house alongwith his wife the other day, they promised<BR>all moral and material support to me for this besides raising the School. I<BR>am also assured of help from so many people/agencies.<P>I have raised a Trust " CAPTAIN SAURABH KALIA MEMORIAL EDUCATIONAL & WELFARE<BR>TRUST" starting with my own contribution of 15 lacs (the incentives<BR>received from Govt. for Saurabh) involving a dozen eminent high ranking<BR>persons from civil and army including a couple of NRIs. The main aim of<BR>this Trust is to take care of Martyrs children meeting their educational,<BR>hostel and day to day expenses with this CORPUS MONEY.<P>In this respect, I would humbly urge and appeal to EVERY NRI to kindly<BR>contribute atleast $100 per family. If you can kindly furnish me with the<BR>addresses of NRIs Associations, I can also appeal to them directly. Further,<BR>it is requested that no funds are sent in my Personal name but in Trust's<BR>name.<P>Kindly write all about your family and other details and do visit us<BR>whenever you come to India.<P>With deep fond love and affections,<P>Dr.Kalia N K<P>IP: Logged<BR> <BR>Kaushal<BR>Member posted 22-06-2000 14:57 <BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR>Can you check if he has a US bank account for the trust, otherwise one has to get a draft or Intl.MO (chance of getting lost).<BR>K<P>IP: Logged<BR> <BR>Muppalla<BR>Member posted 22-06-2000 14:58 <BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR>Good work Mehta.

It is to cater the material needs (hostel expenses, books, uniforms etc.) of the children of Martyrs soldiers (and physically incapacitated soldiers,if sufficient funds available)admitted in the proposed residential Army Public School in the memory of Captain Saurabh Kalia (and admitted elsewhere In India and whosoever approaches depending upon the position of funds).<P>Personally,I feel that people should contribute not lump sum amount and forget all over. My main aim is not to amass huge amount in the TRUST but to arouse among the people a sense of belonging for these not so fortunate children. They should contribute on the eve of their birthday, children's birthday, wedding anniversary or on any appropriate occasion. Even a small token would bring them closer to these children whose father gave their TODAY for our TOMORROW.<P>Further, it is informed that the documents regarding the TRUST for seeking Income Tax rebate etc. have been moved with the appropriate authorities. And you know things do not move that swiftly in our country. Also the State Bank Of India has exempted Service charges for all transactions of the Trust Account.<P>Kindly send your CONTRIBUTIONS in the name of the TRUST only "CAPT. SAURABH KALIA MEMORIAL EDUCATIONAL & WELFARE TRUST" not in my personal name, please. <P>With deep sense of gratitude,<P>Dr. N K Kalia<P>Saurabh Nagar, Palampur-176061 (Himachal Pradesh) India<P>91-1894-32065 (Residence)<P>------------------<BR>Vaibhav Kalia<BR>brother of IC 58522F<BR>Capt.

Fellow BR members.<P>Some people can call me obsessed but I find it disgusting and get frustrated that it has been more than a year since pakistan tortured,killed and mutilated the bodies of 6 Brave Indian Soldiers (Shaheed Capt. Kalia and 5 Soldiers of his Company) and also killed in cold blood Sqn Leader Ajay Ahuja.<BR>Nothing has been done by the Indian Government till now in terms of raising this issue with pakistan and War Crimes convention in Geneva.<BR>As we all start holding BR meetings in various places.<BR>Especially folks in India.<BR>I would like to appeal to each one of you to please raise this issue and try your best to bring attention to this issue. By signing and sending memoradum to various agencies and organizations etc.<BR>We cannot let the sacrifice made by these Brave Soldiers go in vain.<BR>Lets try to get justice for them.<P>Jai Hind
