The Grand Old Rotarian S.B. ANAND
It is with pleasure that I write to compliment a long-term friend Rtn Satya Bhushan Anand. We have been very close to each other and have shared many experiences together as a part of Rotary.
Bhushan was born on 17th February, 1923 in Bhera, then in undivided India (now in Pakistan). His family came to live in Mumbai when he was three years old my site. After obtaining a BCom degree from Sydenham College, Mumbai, he established a business in auto parts called K.L. Anand & Sons, which is based at Opera House. He married Pushpa in 1947 and they have four children.
Rtn Satya Bhushan is a loving father. His daughter Rashmi, says, “Daddy/Daddyji/Nanaji as he is fondly called by all his family members has batted a long innings and is just 7 runs short of his century! The Grand Patriarch of the Anand family, he is highly respected by members of all ages.
“As a young dynamic teenager, he was an actor in a theatre company in Mumbai (then Bombay). When India was in the midst of the freedom struggle, he participated in the long marches at Gowalia Tank Maidan for the Quit India Movement. He was presented with a badge from the Government for being a freedom fighter.
