The Then India Sanmarga Ikya (T.I.S.I) Sangam recorded a net sur­plus of $2.4 million last year.

This was confirmed by the organisation’s national secretary, Damend Gounder, dur­ing the 91st T.I.S.I Sangam Convention at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.

He also revealed that as part of its invest­ment, earlier this week the T.I.S.I Sangam has finalised documents for the purchase of a 2.7 acre piece of land in Nadi town.

“We need young educated persons who are able to connect with the development of Sangam. I believe that we can become members of Sangam because there are prerequisites to fulfil, but the question is are we really members of Sangam?” Mr Goundar asked.

“To be a member of Sangam it’s a social contract, a social bond for us to improve the lives of people through the organisa­tion.”

He added that the Shri Shiva Subraman­ya Temple in Nadi was under renovation with the construction of a new vegetarian restaurant and a new cultural complex worth $7.5 million.

Sangam national president Sadasivan Naicker said the temple was an icon in Nadi for locals and foreigners.
