Shantinagar Sindhi Association was formed about 50 years ago. The motto adopted was "Brotherhood and Service". The aim was for the community to share the Happiness and Sorrows of all the members. With this objective in mind the Founder Members decided to post all the wedding cards from a centralised point themselves. All the members were supposed to attend the funerals of any member or their family member. Even a nominal penalty was levied for non-participation. On the whole the founding fathers wanted to create a hugh well knit family. This Association grew from a limited number of members to the present strength of about 400. A grand Silver Jubilee celebration was held in the year 1993.
We are proud to have amongst us three members who have been recognized and awarded "Sindhu Ratna" by the Sindhi Federation of South India. Shri MM Bhatia, Shri Biharilal H Menda and Shri Lachand T Nagpal have been recognized for their yeoman services to the Sindhi Community.
