Dear Nitin bhai,
It seems a just another day when I met you in one of the meetings of NBOA at Mumbai. You were then posted at Guwahati and as usual you were at your passionate best while discussing things at that meeting. In a sudden surge of momentarily anger against Sri Oomen, you staged a walkout from the meeting...i was a newly elected Zonal Secretary and not much versed with NBOAs intrinsic workings...but I developed a grudging respect for your passionate and sincere approach towards the cause...you may have forgotten but I still remember explicitly that I couldn’t stop myself and came out and persuaded you to rejoin the meeting...its almost a decade since then and I have been privileged to be associated with you in the NBOA...you have not changed a bit and today also you are the same 'angry young man' of NBOA.
The efforts put in by you to strengthen the NBOA, during your tenure as Organising Secretary of NBOA and also as Secretary of Mumbai Unit, are there to be seen by all and I as General Secretary and on behalf of all the members of NBOA acknowledge your contribution great fully and thank you from the core of my heart for all that you did for the good cause of officers Community. NBOA shall always remain indebted to you for all the efforts and contribution you made.
We will miss you and your leadership in times to come , at the same time, we will continue to draw inspiration from your words and deeds of the past...I also solicit your continued relationship with NBOA as an active senior member and as and when we call upon you to lend a supporting hand please do oblige us...i also take this opportunity to express my deep regrets to you in case by my words or deeds if i have ever offended or hurt you...just forget and forgive as an elder brother does to a younger brother.
I take this opportunity to invite you to our next National Council Meeting at Shimla slated for 16 & 17/05/2013 as our honoured guest. Do attend it, all us will be privileged to have you amongst us.
I, on behalf of CEC and the entire membership of NBOA, pray to Almighty to always bless you and your family with peace, prosperity and Pink of Health. May God bless you.
HAPPY HOLI and a PEACEFUL POST RETIREMENT LIFE TO YOU NITIN BHAI.
Dr D S Chauhan
