We mourn the sad demise of our beloved brother, friend and passionate patriot.

The Berom Educational and Cultural Organisation (BECO), is greatly saddened and devastated, by the sad demise of one of our compatriots, Da Iliya Pam Jari, which occurred last week, after a very brief illness. Until his exit Da Pam Jari was a retired civil servant, having taught for many years, before retiring.

On his retirement Da Pam Jari was, among vocations, a veteran Public Affairs Analyst, a very regular Radio Phone-in commentator and a passionate, social crusader cum motivator. For us in the BECO, Pam Jari, was a veritable source of encouragement, as he was always very willing to offer suggestions and advice, towards the realization of lofty ideals for the land.

As a member of the standing Committee on Heritage, Tradition and Costumes, Pam Jari, made remarkable contributions towards the general good and progress of the land, from that perspective. Certainly, we in the BECO will miss his selfless sacrifice, passion and undiluted commitment for the land and our people.

We are however, encouraged by the fact that Iliya Pam Jari, lived a fulfilled life, in total simplicity, humility and uprightness, worthy of emulation.

Much as our hearts are pained by the loss of our very dear and beloved brother, we totally submit to the will of God, knowing that it’s appointed to man to die. We are further comforted by the knowledge that our brother is in a far better place, with his Creator.

May God comfort his family, friends, Gyel District and the entire Beromland, over the irreparable loss. Sleep On good brother.

Da Chollom Gyang
Secretary General.
