On 17th June Oasis Completes Two Decades of its Inception

Once a Fantasy, Now a Reality

'It's kind of fun to do the impossible.'
- Walt Disney

17th June 1989.

A group of a dozen odd youths gathered somewhere at Vadodara to share & learn from Life.
These were the raw seeds that nurtured the idealism and dream of Oasis!

17th June 2009.

A group of a dozen missionary team-leaders would gather from across the country to share & learn from Life.
These are the strong trees spearheading Oasis Movement today by sharing the Philosophy, Art & Science of Living, Loving & Learning across the world.

A story of a small idea that got refined by a painstaking process of research & experimentation over long years involving thousands of youths and citizens. The search for the mission of our lives and how to contribute our best to this world further evolved it to become a grand dream.

Today Oasis is at the pedestal of initiating a mass movement for character-building education. Oasis Valleys, the institution-in-making, epitomizes the essence of our vision for a better India.

On this prayerful moment of our lives, we take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with Oasis in this magnificent journey over these 2 decades.
Our wonderful parents and families, who couldn’t have been more generous & magnanimous and who deserve a grand salute for standing by us in every struggle be it an adventure or a misadventure!
Our benevolent contributors, whose unconditional support augmented our sense of responsibility to contribute our best to the society.
Our gracious well-wishers & friends, who helped us to keep going on in good & bad times as well.
Our evolving beneficiaries, who provide us the maximum opportunities of reflections to love, learn & change for better.

Thank you so much!

You Said It

Dear friends,

First of all, I thank to DR NEHA for reminding me about OASIS which nearly I had forgotten.

Secondly giving me opportunity in participating in excellent workshop.

I salute to " SHEEBA ". She presented complicated-philosophical matter in VERY PALATABLE form. This exhibits her experience and dedication.

I had read this book many many years ago. But now I will have to read it again in new perspective.

Really I got very good guide lines for my future life.

Please convey my thanks to all team members. Thanking again.
