A TRIBUTE TO ‘SANJEVANI’ MANI

What one is born as is God’s gift to man;

As I was about to leave, I remembered the most important request I was to make and in fact it was the very reason I was to meet him — if he could get me a printer for the rotary offset machine I was going to buy. I thought he would say, as usual with mos...more
