I wish to compliment the Clare Estate Crematorium Society on their successful annual general meeting which was held on November 5.
The organisation, under the leadership of the chairman, Mr D Nundkissore and his board, have done an excellent job while facing many operational challenges from rising costs and lack of support from the municipality to rampant crime.
Despite all of this, the organisation can be proud to say that this is one of the best facilities in the country, without any assistance from our government.
I would be failing in my duty if I didn’t also pay respect to the for-bearers of this organisation, who not only saw the need of our community but also had the vision to ensure that this organisation was maintained and upgraded so as to ensure that our religious and cultural practices would be perpetuated.

Mahatma Gandhi said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” To the board of Clare Estate Crematorium Society, I say you are the living example of this powerful quote. May you and your families be eternally blessed.
