Manubhai acknowledges the kind gift gesture presented by Kajal Paw with the following message
I would like to thank all of you at the Hindu Forum for the very thoughtful gift of the reclining Buddha statue that Kajalben presented to me at the last HF meeting on 11 December 2016;I would like to add that it has been an honour and my privilege to serve the Hindu community of Walsall over the past few years.
I would also like to record my thanks to all committee members for their valuable support over many years and I wish the Hindu Forum continued success in the future under the new Chairman, Ashvin Patel. Of course, I will continue to help the organisation in any way I can in my new role of Trustee,
I have seen the original Buddha statue at Ajanta Caves in India and so it will bring pleasant memories every time I look upon your gift. I have attached a Buddha quote which will resonate with everyone.
Once again thank you all.
