A mission of charity
Thirty years ago on June 23 when Air India’s Boeing Kanishka crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, among the 329 who perished, were four whose roots lay in Dhankot village.
Om Prakash Jain, his wife Indu and their children Ruchi (17) and Rikki (16) were on their way home from Canada when a bomb blast ended their journey. Only Indu and Ruchi’s bodies could be recovered from the debris.
Om Praksh graduated from Ambala and did engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. He was working in Bell Laboratories in Canada as manager, terminal product integrity. Indu was employed by Digital Equipment of Canada. Both children were attending high school. Four bright lives were snuffed out in the disaster.
Shri Mangat Ram Jain
The father who rose above his grief to keep the memory of his son Om & his family alive by helping the poor and underprivileged. Out of one family’s grief was thus born happiness for thousands of others.
The news of the Air India Kanishka Air Crash was received in stunned silence by the members of both Om’s & Indu’s families. After the funeral ceremonies of the two female members Indu and Ruchi whose bodies alone could be recovered, some one asked Mr. Mangat Ram Jain, Om’s father, what should be done with the family’s assets in Canada. His instant reply was “Not only their assets but also the compensation money will be used for a good cause.” The family took it as God’s Diktat and thus was formed the Om Indu Jain Charitable Trust in the year 1986.
