DICKU MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Immanuel Business School (a Post Graduate College Business) is an initiative of the proposed Immanuel University.
IBS is dedicated to the minorities and is committed to providing higher education to every qualified student regardless of their financial capabilities.
In keeping with this commitment, IBS is pleased to announce the formation of Dicku Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will make higher education possible to those students who have high academic records and leadership potentials.
The late Dinesh Gaurav, lovingly known as Dicku, is the eldest son of Bishop Joab and Suchitra Lohara. Dicku was an exceptional young man known for his heart for the poor, especially the destitute youth of India.
Resilient and relentless, he toiled since the time he began to learn to help his parents in thier service to the disenfranchised. He was born with an extra-ordinary zeal; his energy was high. Endowed with the gift of communication, he quickly became a motivator and a team man.
Though born with the incurable disease, sickle cell anemia, God blessed him with great intelligence. From the High School, he went on to pursue college education and then MBA at the reputed IIPM.
Every month was a bad month for him health wise. But 2010 June was the worst. He caught some virus seriously infecting his liver and kidney. Every possible treatment was done in renowned hospitals but in vain. Dicku was called home by our dear Lord in the early hours of January 7, 2011 while in the ICU at Care Hospital.
Passion for the ministry had taken Dicku on overseas journey on two occasions during the last 3 years of his life. He spent 3 months at Warm Beach Camp in Washington learning administration and was trained another 3 months at Marysville Free Methodist Church in Washington in youth ministry. During his sojourn in U.S., he made many friends and was known for his ready smile and positive attitude.
Dicku led youth ministry and choir in church. His heart for youth led him to create the Collision Youth Conference, which has blessed thousands of young people across the sub-continent.
Dicku loved and served the children of Aim Asia’s orphanages as well as the poor leprosy victims and helpless widows. He even initiated a small business in partnership with INTAND in Seattle to be able to provide jobs to unemployed youth. He often talked about setting up educational institutes to help the economically backward youth for higher education.
Dicku is no more with us. But we know he is in his eternal home. In the last moments of his life in the hospital, he comforted his parents and in his last words said, “Do not cry… I am not worried about dying.” He often quoted 2Cor. 5:8 to his friends, “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord,” confirming his faith in the Savior.
The Dicku Memorial Scholarship Fund will carry forward Dicku’s vision to offer higher education to the destitute youth through Immanuel University.
