Excerpts from Prakash Wagmare email to WHN:

With deep sadness and sorrow, I share a heartbreaking news that my dear friend of past 30 years, Shri Narainji Kataria, is no more with us. The ‘Hindu Lion’ that roared for more than 30 years for all Hindu aspirations, causes and injustices inflicted on Hindu-community, passed away peacefully in his sleep, sometime on Monday night (Nov.2). In essence, Narainji was ‘Bal Thakare’ of Tri-State area – fearless, passionate, with singular determination to restore dignity of ‘Hindus and Hinditva’, in all its shape and form.Narainji was a hardcore nationalist, a superb community organizer and an incomparable relentless political activist who was the toast of Hindu-diaspora on the east coast. 

—– Prakash Waghmare

Excerpts from Gaurang Vaishnav email to WHN:
” Namaste. Many of you may have known by now that one of the tallest Hindu leaders from New York, Shri Narain Kataria is no more. He passed away in his sleep on the intervening night of November 2 & 3. Though he was 85 years old, his energy and enthusiasm could put to shame a 25 years old youth. I have attempted to put my thoughts together in my blog at the following link. Please go through it to know more about Katariaji” – Gaurang G. Vaishnav
