Dr Sajjan Singh is founder of the Chinmaya U3A, Rewa, in Madhya Pradesh - the first U3A in all of India.

We run some general meetings here at the Chinmaya Ashram, but also run many camps in the rural districts. You could say we have about 100 regular members/attendees.

Our studies are Fitness, Sociology, Domestic Economics, Psychology, Spirituality, and we hope to add Computing/Communications to that list of subjects.

What makes me so happy with U3A? Well we had a Gynaecologist member who lost her husband and became so depressed and withdrawn that we were concerned that she would simply pass away from her grief. We persuaded her to come to one of our rural camps and after just 4 days she called me to say it had given her a new purpose in life and now she wanted to spend her days helping those who cannot afford family planning services. U3A has that effect. Yes - those who teach shall learn,and those who learn shall teach. Dr S Singh
