Pandit Anand Sarup((1917 - 1987) Founder Member)
Pandit Anand Saroop, a dynamic personality, a true Congress party worker who whole heartedly dedicated to the service of the society was born at Barnala in Pandit Sarav Dyal family in 1917.
He started his career by joining the police department facing the challenges of this job courageously. However, in the police force his dream to serve the society could not be accomplished. So, he bade good bye to this job. To realize his goal to be the kin of the masses, he remained an active member of the Municipal Committee consecutively for nine years and contributed a lot in bringing about constructive changes in the city. He also remained the President of the Truck Union.
Besides being a philanthropist and a leading member of S.D. Sabha, his contribution in the field of education was praiseworthy. Being General Secretary of the Managing Committee of S.D. College Barnala, he worked meticulously for the systematic development and growth of the institution. Along with the founder President Dr. Raghubir Parkash and Sh. Darbari Lal Tondon, he parented the college inimitably with his care and support. It was his cherished dream that the students of this region should become better human beings to lead the society on the progressive path. But this adorable spirit left us to his heavenly abode on 19.01.87. Salute to this mighty spirit!
