Retirement speech by Kantibhai Ghaghada

Retired & Relaxed


As the party was organised at the home ground, Samaj hall, the Bank of India parivar were welcomed as Samaj’s guests. Thus being the President, Kantibhai also acted as the host. He along with the committee warmly welcomed all guests presented them with the flower bouquets on behalf of Samaj.



From Webmaster:

Retirement is not only an ending, but also a new beginning! It is a new adventure and a momentous occasion in everybody's life that marks the end of one lifestyle and the start of another.


It goes without saying that this should be a major celebration with a great party. Kantibhai is a much loved figure amongst his work colleagues. His popularity is quite evident by seeing all his retirement pictures.


I have known Kantibhai for many years and with our common interest in Samaj Sewa have developed a strong friendship. His humility is one of the first personalities. I remember his words when we were having private conversation at the World Conference at Dwarka when he said “I may be the President of Jamnagar Jamnagar President, but first and foremost am a volunteer and a worker and have no hesitation in doing any type work for our Samaj”. Kantibhai is our true Samaj leader giving selfless service to our community.


Wishing a very  happy wedding anniversary!


My best wishes to Kantibhai on his retirement and wish him all the joy and happiness retirement can bring.


I also wish both Kantibhai and Induben a very happy wedding anniversary!!


Pranbhai Dhanak
