PathaDarshini Website and Online Dictionaries Released
PathaDarshini a dear companion in our Endeavour to help the marginalized.
Most Rev. Dr Peter Paul Saldanha.
These days Digital Medias, Social Medias and other fast growing medias are attempting to take over the world. Being present everywhere, knowing everything that is required and providing all essential information they have started becoming the makers or breakers of the modern world. But we have this Pathadarshini Seva Trust walking along with us. Said Bishop Peter Paul Saldanha, he was speaking after launching the website (www.pathadarshini.org) of The Pathadarshini Seva Trust, a public Charitable trust. Today they are launching a website which will be walking along with us guiding the path. The trust is rendering very essential service of providing Higher Education and Employment Guidance since last 15 years and now that the trust has gone global their services will be both effective and will be available to all people around the globe.
Bishop said that term charity comes from Caritas which actually means Love. If somebody claims to be serving others and feels proud about it or goes around trumpeting about it the real spirit of charity is lost. Pathadarshini has been very useful to the community but they have never gone around singing their own praises this makes the trust loved and liked by all. The commitment of the trust towards needy is thus not only relevant but also useful said the Bishop. Bishop thanked the trustees for all their services, especially in the field of Higher Education and Higher Employment Guidance.
