Patriarch of the Joshi family – Shri Vasant Joshi leaves for his heavenly abode
The glorious innings of Vasco’s prominent son Shri Vasantrao Joshi came to an end on 28th Dec 2013.
A former legislator of the Vasco constituency (1972), Shri Vasant Joshi was an individual who endeared himself to the citizens of this town.
A visionary who set up much needed educational facilities in this neighbourhood, the Murgao Education Society, which began in very modest premises in town, has now grown to be a college with excellent facilities and caters to the higher educational needs of students of this area.
A businessman with considerable acumen, he oversaw the expansion of the family business in the automotive sector.
He carried forward the tradition of the Saptah rituals with which the Joshi abode has become intricately linked ever since the courtyard of the house was offered for the installation of the ‘Shrifal’ that was brought from the temple of Lord Damodar at Zambauli.
He leaves being a legacy of the old school, where strength of character, dedication, selflessness and concern for fellow beings will serve as a beacon for the younger generations to follow and emulate.
May his soul rest in peace in his heavenly abode.
