Dear Veerashaivas,

At the outset I would like thank you all for having unanimously elected me as the President of the VSUK.

I feel honoured to be given this opportunity to serve our Veershaiva Samaja Association here in the United Kingdom, which has grown steadily over the last 27 years and has engaged in fostering our culture and heritage on the principals and teachings of Basavanna.

I am sure you would all agree our association is a platform to promote Veershaivisim and to preserve our cultural values and impart them to our younger generation.

I am immensely pleased to have a strong team of office bearers including our executive committee who are young and enthusiastic. They are highly capable and keeping in pace with changing times.

I heartily welcome our new members and extend my respect and regards to our Trustees and senior members without whose initiation and efforts this respectable association would not have come into existence.

We as a team would heartily welcome active participation of all our members and value your suggestions in improving the activities of VSUK in the years to come.

Dr Kallinath Shyamanur
