His Grace Sarvananda dāsa Adhikari passed away some days before due to the Covid-19, and he was sitting as a General Manager of the Pondicherry branch. So, SIDC (South Indian Divisional Council) met and spoke on his glories, and specially moving was the presentation by one of the devotees of Pondicherry, who said that Sarvananda and his good wife were like their parents. He said that Sarvananda treated better than he would even expect from mother and father. So, he broke down in tears, and many people spoke on this occasion. They appreciated his determination, his dedication.
