During that period like our country our community had limited span for development. Metric or Graduate people are consider as wise as today’s PHD. Early period has limited vehicle of development and communication which resulted in misunderstanding, pre define perception and un healthy competition but our elders were very wise, they were not highly qualified but very clear about the philosophy that the Key to majority of the problem is the Education and religion. The community which has foundation of Education and religion will definitely have Growth and Development. Strong belief in these philosophy had inspire some young blood of our community and they got together and met Shri Jayantilal Amarlal Mehta, Shri Dhanjibhai Devchandbhai Shah and Shri Babulal Dalshukhbhai Shah and the concept got cultivated in seed for the community which has resulted in existence of Patrishi Samaj. Today these seed has cultivated in big tree which has many branches. Any plant need lots of hardwork and care during initial years which was provided by shri Bhogilal Jeshingbhai Shah and shri Sevantilal Dalshukhbhai Mehta.

Chhaniar based Sheth shri Vadilal Virchandbhai shah has first ever accepted Fund Yojna and then after Khambhel based sheth shri Popatlal Maganlal Doshi has accepted Paritoshik Fund Yojna

In Initial Years volunteers used to roam from 8 in the evening to 1 o’clock in the night in hot summer month for exchange of books or new books to community students to maximize development in community. Good amount of funds has been collected in the beginning. Efforts were made to collect fund through arranging drama called “Pattani Jod” and “Shetal ne Kanthe” in 1961 and 1967 in respective years. These funds have been utilized in short term and need to go to community people again has arise. At these point without fail I would like to acknowledge some respected community people who has always provided their excellent support and guidance for permanent Fund their names are sheth shri shantilal chakubhai shah, sheth shri vadilal ravichand shah, sheth shri chimanlal ravichand shah, sheth shri Manshukhlal Chhaganlal shah, Sheth shri Shantilal Manilal Dhiya and many more list is endless….............................

Jagruti Mitra Mandal has been registered as “Shree Jagruti Mitra Mandal” in 1979 under the Trust Act. Mini Address Book and updated Address Book has been published in 1982 and 1986 respectively which contains the address of community people.

Young Blood has entered in Karobari in 1980. To strengthen the bond of community people Kshamapana Samaroh, School and College Shield Yojna, Fee Sahay, College Scholarship yojna has been started.

I was present in the heart of community people but did not have any physical presence. Community’s strong desire and late Kamalaben Popatlal zaveri’s benevolent giving has made my physical presence possible by community office fully operated on 28/04/1996. And today we have made the same office highly furnished and decorative

I am really happy to say that our community people were very kind in giving donations to “Arthik Sahay Skim” for their community brothers who are economically not strong. And today we are able to help of Rs. 200000/- approximately during the year.

There was huge celebration in 2003 in honor of my completion of 25 years as registered “Shree Dashashreemali Patrishi Jain Educational Trust”. Shree Bhaktamar Mahapujan was held at Shree Gururaj Navkara Parshwanath Tirth Chhatralay which was celebrated with high religious sprite on 21/12/2003 and token of gift has been distributed at the time of celebration.

750 People have taken part in “Tri Divasiy Chh Ri Palit Sangh” starting from Ahmedabad to Shri Dhanap under the guidance and supervision of “ Pa.Pu. Muniraj Shree Vairagyaratnasagarji Maharaj” This was really one of the eternal and unforgettable events and I altruistically extend my gratitude towards this. While uttering this I would like take opportunity to distinguish the enormous Tapasvini “Pa.Pu.Sa.Shri.Prathampragyashriji. Ma.Sa” who has done 72 Fast to keep Jain Sasan Jaivantu. At the same time would also like to acknowledged the “Shankheshwartirth Parana” Occasion which was in true meaning really unforgettable under the guidance of “Munishree Vairagyaratna Sagarji Maharaj Saheb” who has done 4700 Ayambil and whose continuous blessing are always their on us.

We started with Rs.11 as membership Fees and for students we use to deduct Rs. 2 from “Pustak Sahay” as ordinary membership fees. From the collected fees we have arranged tour and after that every “Sneh Samelan” is being completed after tour and now it is one of the activity. This year “Sneh Samelan” was held at “Shri Sherisha Tirth” approximately 22 K.M from Ahmedabad which was attended by 800 members and the presence of members speaks the success of “Sneh Samelan”.

Earlier “Samuh Lagna” was cancelled due to situation but to continuous efforts of members it has started again and this year we celebrated 11th “Samuh Lagna Mahotsav”.

On this note I am leaving past behind since I do not have interest only in history. We can learn and take guidance from history but that can be practiced in present so we will discuss about our present and future.
