PHOTO GALLERY -

A WINDOW TO THE PAST

   

The SDBBS is very proud to have crossed an important milestone in its history. It is its 75th anniversary, or the Platinum Jubilee, which was  celebrated in 1998 with great enthusiasm by all our members and well-wishers. It is heartening to note that the torch lit in 1923 by the small immigrant community which started the SDBBS is still burning bright and unswerving in its principal mission of upholding the Vedic traditions and values. Whilst SDBBS  looks with pride by celebrating its 75th anniversary, let us go back in time to relive some of its past achievements, through this photo gallery.
