Sub: All India Kashmiri Samaj Condoles the Demise of Prof. Chaman Lal Sapru.
All India Kashmir Samaj expresses its deep regret on the sad demise of Prof. Chaman Lal Sapru at Faridabad on 17 November 2020.
Prof. Sapru was a well-known member of the community who, over the years, played an active role in the community’s myriad activities in NCR, particularly in NOIDA, where he was associated with KMWA, NOIDA, for the past many years. His contribution in strengthening KMWA, NOIDA, was significant.
Prof. Sapru was an active figure in the field of Hindi literature, who devoted great effort in popularizing Hindi among various groups. For this task, he was honoured with awards and citations by many well-known organizations.
Prof. C L Sapru devoted a better part of his life to Sri Rama Krishna Mission, of which he was an inseparable part in Kashmir. He was founder Secretary of Ramakrishna Ashram, Srinagar, and Member of its Managing Committee at New Delhi. He was also member of the Jammu and Kashmir Dharmarth Trust. He continued to contribute to the mission right till the end of his life.
With his razor-sharp memory, authority on Hindi and association with significant events over many decades, Prof. Chaman Lal Sapru was a mine of information on issues connected with Kashmir and our community. In his passing away we have lost a true community icon.
All India Kashmiri Samaj pays its heartfelt and rich tributes to Prof. Sapru and prays for Sadgati to the departed soul. We also convey our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.
