Seva Mandals Lord GSB .. The Lord Of All Good Things

posted at Facebook


To my very dear cherished friends from the erstwhile GSB community a community well known for its social service and its contribution to human society beyond color caste or creed ,,
In some time I will be presenting you a small gift of my humility for the love you have shown me year after year at the GSB Lord Ganesha festival.
