About Omprakash Dwivedi

Mr Om Prakash Dwivedi was born in July 1913 in Namtoo, Burma. His mother died when he was three years old in Burma and was mostly brought up by his grandmother. He began his education at Guru Kul Dehra Doon. He married Mrs Vimla devi in 1937. He joined the Indian National Army to help fight the struggle for freedom against the British whilst in Burma. He was captured as a prisoner during the second world war and returned to India in 1946 to everyone's surprise as he was presumed dead. In free India, he worked for Coal India as a Human Resource manager. Subsequently, he joined politics and became President of the Mandal congress committee, Tanda-Hoshiarpur for 17 years. He spent his later life doing social work, helping the poor and disadvantaged. He, along with his wife, helped his father's, Rai Sahib Dr Dewan Chand's, charitable village dispensary. He was an exemplary son and devoted his time to look after his elderly father, Dr Dewan Chand, and his Uncle, Dr Ganga Ram in the later years of their lives. He will always be remembered as someone who was selfless and devoted to those who were less fortunate and needy. He was an exceptional father who taught his four children to live with high moral values and showed them the great importance of love and affection over self gain. He died in Jalandhar on the 8th September, 1991.
