http://www.herenow4u.net/fileadmin/v3media/pics/persons/Dr._Moolchand_Sethia/Dr_Moolchand_Sethia_-_A_torch-_bearer_of_ANUVRAT_02.jpgThe Pink-city lost a muti-dimensional personality - Dr. Moolchand Sethia, who was a renowned writer, philosopher, teacher and social worker. He devoted his life for the service of humanity by teaching his students not only the text but also the 'sanskar' and the real sense of the word and principles. He was a profound speaker and well known writer of Hindi,  Rajasthani, and Urdu literature. He had studied the Jain Aagams as well as Vedas and Upanishad, thereby assimilating the spiritual and philosophical concepts.

Dr Sethia died after brief illness on 20th October at the age of 87 years and the entire world of literature drowned in utter sorrow. Dr. Sethia taught for many years starting from BITS, Pilani and retiring as Associate Professor-Hindi Deptt from University of Rajasthan. Many of his books have been published and he is known to have broadcast more than a hundred literacy talks on All India Radio and Doordarshan. He had close relation with stalwarts of Hindi Literature like Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Harivansh Rai Bacchan, Agyeya, Mahadevi  Varma, Jainendra Kumar, Kanhaiya Lal Sethia and so on. Dr. Sethia rendered unforgettable service to “Terapanth Sect” of the Jain religion as a well known spokesman of the “Anuvrat Andolan”. The demise of a person who accepted dozens of awards with the sense of his growing social responsibilities, has left a vaccum impossible to be filled.
