HARI MASTER, as he was fondly known,HARIDAS KARAT, of PALLASSANA, PALAKKAD DISThad been an integral part of the Jishnu Foundation, from its inception A dedicated teacher, volunteer, well-wisher, and besides all a great human being without a parallel. His demise has left a void which can never be filled. May his soul rest in eternal peace, and we at JISHNU FOUNDATION will always be inspired and indebted by the good work he carried out selflessly for the Foundation.

God saw that he was getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him
and whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes "the best".
