Narain Kataria cremation ceremony amid family, friends and community

unnamedAmid the family, friends and community, in the midst of prayers and tears of all those who have grown to love him, Narain Kataria ji cremation ceremony was completed today in New York City. A noble soul has passed away only in body but his legacy will continue. The tributes his passing evoked showed how he touched so many hearts, not just Indians and Hindus, but many across the cross section of humanity. Gaurang ji put it well, Kataria ji set an example of what a leader should be, no personal agenda, no hidden program of fame, no desire to go on stage. At 85 he would hold placards in cold weather and shout for cause of India so dear to him, which two or three generations younger than him could hardly match. His actions came out of deep love for India, Hindus and humanity. A chapter is over but it is up to us to take the mantle and continue. Please watch the website as we update the videos of the ceremony as well as his lifetime work. With a heart full of sorrow, I pray God that we have strength to continue his work. unnamed (1) unnamed (1) unnamed   Different groups are planning to have condolence meetings for Narain Kataria ji.   We encourage the many people who have known Kataria ji and feel the deep loss to have condolence meetings this weekend and send us pictures/videos.     This meeting could be a small or a big gathering, could be in a hall with group of people or home with family.
