What People Say

This year once again we had the honour of receiving the following message from the President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee:-

"The President of India , Shri Pranab Mukherjee, is happy to know that the Theosophical Order of Service, Mumbai is organising its Colloquium on the theme " Loving Actions Speak Louder Than Kind Words" from 6th to 10th November, 2013 at Deolali. The President extends his warm greetings and felicitations to all those associated with the Theosophical Order of Service and wishes the Colloquium every success."
-Shri Pranab Mukherjee
President of India

"The Theosophical Order of Service was founded by Dr. Annie Besant to put into action the noble ideals of Theosophy. It is reassuring to note that the Mumbai Branch of the Order has been carrying forward the legacy of its Founder by doing good work for the underprivileged, the handicapped and for the education of poor children and welfare of their families. The Order should think of innovative ways to associate the youth with its activities. I have no doubt in my mind that the youth of the country will respond favourably to the call to serve the nation and its people with great enthusiasm."
- Shri K. Sankaranarayanan,
Present Governor of Maharashtra

"Dr. Annie Besant, the illustrious founder of the Theosophical Order of Service was a fiercely independent woman, educator and a true friend of India. All her life, she championed the cause of women's rights. Theosophy to her was not merely a way of knowing God, it was a means of serving humanity. It is indeed gratifying to know that this tradition of service to humanity has been continued by the Theosophical Order of Service till this day. The Order deserves compliments for consistently doing good work for the underprivileged, the handicapped and for education of poor children. The concern displayed by the members of the Order in assisting victims of the Tsunami disaster that struck coastal areas of South India was commendable."
- S. M. Krishna,
EX- Governor of Maharashtra

"The work being done by the Theosophical Order of Service for the education and welfare of over 400 underprivileged and handicapped children and their families shows that its noble thoughts are matched by noble deeds."
- Mohammed Fazal,
Ex-Governor of Maharashtra

"Wishing the Theosophical Order of Service, and Mr. Rusi Toddywalla in particular, more and more success in its committed service to mankind."
- Pheroza J. Godrej

"If we could emulate even a percent of what all of you do, the world would be a great place."
- Niloufer Bilimoria,
Ex. General Manager, Times Response

"The selfless commitment of the Theosophical Order of Service towards alleviating the conditions of the poor, the sick and the handicapped is indeed laudable. I am particularly happy to know about the Theosophical Order's work for the education of the poor children. In today's world of inequalities of opportunities, services of this type are most relevant and necessary."
Dr. P.C. Alexander,
Ex-Governor of Maharashtra

"The Theosophical Order of Service is doing very good work for the poor, the sick and the handicapped."
- Bharat Ratna Shri C. Subramaniam,

My best wishes go to the dedicated band of workers who are involved in selfless service over the years in bringing about a smile on the faces of the poor, the sick and the handicapped.
