I AM N.K. PRATAPAN, HON. SECRETARY OF PESTOM SAGAR CITIZENS FORUM (REGD.), CHEMBUR IN EASTERN SUBURBS OF MUMBAI,  AN NGO OF 15 YEARS STANDING, SUPPORTED BY MORE THAN 1000 PATRON MEMBERS AND MORE THAN 100 SELFLESS VOLUNTEERS.

PSCF BROUGHT OUT SEVERAL INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMES IN THE AREA, IS A JOINT RECIPIENT OF BEST ALM AWARD FROM ORCHID ECOHOTELS, TWICE BROUGHT OUT PESTOM SAGAR DIRECTORY AND YELLOW PAGES, SEVERAL WINGS SUCH AS ALM WING, GYMKHANA WING, SPORTS AND CULTURAL WING, DISASTER MANAGEMENT WING ETC. WORKING UNDER THE FORUM.

THE RECENT SPATE OF RAINS, THOUGH DID NOT SPARE PESTOM SAGAR TOO, WE SAW THAT ALL VOLUNTEERS CAME OUT TO SEE THAT THE DEBRIS IS CLEARED WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS THUS AVOIDING MAJOR EPIDEMIC OR A FURTHER CATASTROPHE.  PESTOM SAGAR, PREDOMINANTLY MIDDLE CLASS WORKING CLASS CO-EXISTS WITH THREE RECOGNISED SLUMS, GIVING EQUAL HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO EVERYBODY, OR RATHER WE TAKE CARE OF SLUM DWELLERS THE BEST WHILE IN TURN WE GET CO-OPERATION FROM THEM TOO.

INTERACTIONS WITH MMC M WARD OR THE CONCERNED OFFICIALS IN HEAD OFFICE DO RECEIVE FAST AND BEST ATTENTION TO OUR ACTIVITIES.  WE HAVE PROVED THAT CITIZENS PARTICIPATION IN CIVIC AFFAIRS WILL BRING IN MORE FACILITIES TO THE AREA AND WE CAN ENSURE THAT THE AREA IS KEPT CLEAN DESPITE THE CONSTRAINTS OF FINANCIAL POWERS, BUT WITH THE HELP FROM MMC OFFICIALS.  THIS PARTICIPATION OF CITIZENS, HAVE BENEFITED THEMSELVES, IS A REALISATION ALL HAVE GOT WHILE EITHER A CITIZEN COMES TO STAY IN PESTOM SAGAR DOESNT WANT TO LEAVE THE PLACE, OR THE SALE PRICE OF THEIR FLAT FETCHES BETTER APPRECIATION.

WE ARE ALWAYS WILLING TO CO-OPERATE IN ANY ENDEAVOUR THAT YOU TAKE UP, AND WE BELIVE, UNITY IS STRENGTH.

WHENEVER ANY PROGRAMMES ARE BEING CONDUCTED, DO LET ME KNOW, SO THAT DESPITE MY MUCH DEMANDING TIME BEING A GROUP GENERAL MANAGER OF BIRLA GROUP OF CONCERNS, I STILL FIND TIME TO ATTEND TO THE COMMON PROGRAMMES THAT WILL BENEFIT THE CITIZENS, AND IN CASE IN AM UNABLE TO ATTEND, I ENSURE THAT I SEND SOME OF OUR ESTEEMED MEMBERS TO ATTEND THE SAME.  DR.SANDEEP RANE IS OUR CHAIRMAN, AN EMINENT CARDIOLOGIST AND CO-PROMOTER OF ASIAN HEART INSTITUTE WHO ALSO TAKES TIME, BARRING EMERGENCIES, TO ATTEND TO THE CAUSE OF COMMON MAN.

THANKS AND REGARDS, AND BEST WISHES FOR YOUR ENDEAVOUR.
