Kulshrestha Kalyan Samiti feels proud and profoundly congratulates the followings, who have enlightened the name of the Community:-



If you are looking for a person at Agra, city with which most of us are connected, a person who is most dependable and ever ready to accept responsibilities for social causes, it is ‘soldier’ whose real name is as above which very few people know. His parents Shri Bankey Lal who was in police and Shrimati Sri Devi would have recognized the traits in the toddler  and appropriately started calling him ‘soldier’. They may not have imagined that this name would

Vishwa Kulshrestha Sammelan

become so well known and famous in the community and beyond. This young man of 75 years with broad shoulders and untiring zeal does not know the word ‘NO’. He is omnipresent in community gatherings whether of  grief or joy and is on his own happy to accept any responsibility with smile on his face.

Born on 27 Nov 1940 at Bulandshahar town of west UP had his early education at Agra. True to his name he was selected for IAF and joined the service in June 1962. He would be amongst  few veterans who participated in 1962, 1965, 1971 and Kargil war of 1999. Finally, retired in Nov 2000 in the rank of a Flying Officer after distinguished service of 38 years.

Soldier is working with dedication for the community since 1991 even while in service.  In Feb 2014 he was elected for the coveted post of  President Kulshrestha Sabha Agra thus joined the gallery of illustrious Kulshresthas who have been the past presidents. During his tenure he has accomplished major renovation at Kulshrestha Bhavan Shahganj Agra. He is the backbone of Kulshrestha Kalyan Samiti being the Coordinator of western Uttar Pradesh which is the base of its resources and disbursements for the welfare of the community.

Kulshrestha Kalyan Samiti is today  honoured to give the prestigious award of ‘Kulshrestha Ratna’ for the year 2015 to Flying Officer (retd) Virendra Kumar Kulshrestha for his self less and long dedicated service to the community.
