Tankaria, our village, is known for its size, education, history and developments. But other than all these, the great village of Tankaria is known for its people. The people who made this place so special. The people who earned great respect for the word “Tankaria”. How much do we know about them?
It is our duty to remember our forefathers for what they did for our village and the sacrifices they made to make our village better. It is with this noble aim that we have decided to compile and publish brief life sketches / stories of such people on our website. This is one way to show that we have not forgotten them and we are grateful to them for what they did to make our life better. The whole idea is to highlight the positive side of their life and the useful contributions they made, so that our younger generations can draw ideas and inspiration from reading about them.
You may send any articles in English or Gujarati by e-mail to email@example.com and we will try to publish them after editing within a month from their receipt. Any constructive comments or suggestions will be most welcome.
IMPORTANT: If you know the Date of Birth or Date of Death of any of the people listed below, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add this information to each file. Thank you.
