To almost everyone he is simply Dr Das, the man who had devoted his life to the care and well being of the Indian Community in Manchester and its older members in particular. Dr Das demonstrated a boundless enthusiasm and commitment to Indian elders, bringing a ray of hope and inspiration to people that recognise the contribution our elders make to society.
How We Started
Dr Das who led the drive to found the Indian Senior Citizens’ Centre (ISCC) in the late 1980’s after a lifetime of work as a geriatric specialist in Manchester.
He ‘retired’ himself in 1990, but more than 10 years on he still worked tirelessly to improve and support the lives of the elders he obviously cares for so much.
He served on a wide range of public bodies such as Voluntary Action Manchester, Older Peoples’ Network, Manchester Council for Community Relations and Age Concern Manchester. Recently he was heavily involved in the National Service Framework for Older People introduced by the National Health Service.
In Memory Of Dr Das
Dr Das has been recognised with numerous awards including an MBE and the Whitbread Volunteers Award in the mid 1990s.
Mr Das who is no longer with us ,but his hard work is still carried on by the members of this organisation.
