- The means the vision should become a part of OBA transcending the management committee present and the future. To make this happen several action are required. An important element of these efforts is to develop adequate funds to enable further creative development.
- We believe as members of OBA to shed our cynicism and initiate concrete action to realize the second vision. The first vision, seeded around 1970, was to from an organization for the ex students. The second one is to make this organization self reliant, strong bonding, self contained in terms op infrastructure, organization and management. Our successful action will lead to further action bringing the vision much closer to reality perhaps in 5-8 yrs from now. We may even be judged as having been cautious and conservative. We will be happy if the action taken proves that we could have been still bolder in advocating a faster march toward achieving the 2nd vision.
- I have had the benefit of private conversation with many Ghorakhalians, in all these I observed one striking feature A number of ex Ghorakhalian, those who are in powerful positions in Govt, Industry business and academia seem to lack the will to work or do something worthwhile for the OBA. They would like others to do or initiate action for the wellbeing of the OBA. It is not a good sign.
- Even after 43 years of existence, OBA has not reached any where near being a worthwhile association. All of us have to be clear that no body is going to hold us together. That is where our hope lies for the realization of the second vision.
