Background of GSB
Gowd Saraswat Brahman Sabha (GSB), popularly known as GSB Sabha was founded on 26th August, 1934. It is a Non Profit Making Non Government Organization (NGO) working relentlessly since its inception for the welfare of the society, in general, and the Gowd Saraswat Brahman Community, in particular. It is a registered body under the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950, having Registration Number A-1618 (Bom.) dated 3rd June, 1953.
It was in the year 1934 that a few enlightened members of the GSB Community in the city then known as Bombay, got together at the business premises of Late Shri Bola Krishna Kamath, one among the eminent members of the GSB community of Mumbai, and conceived the idea of forming an association of members of the GSB Community who were at the time migrating to the city in increasing numbers. The outcome of this historic meeting was a decision to form an umbrella organization to bring together members of the GSB community who had settled down in Bombay. The primary objective of this organization, which was to act as a forum to promote, preserve, and ensure continuity of social, cultural and dharmic traditions, values, and heritage of the Gowd Saraswat Brahman community, resulted in the formation of the GOWD SARASWAT BRAHMAN SABHA on 26th August, 1934, with the divine grace and blessings of Parama Pujya Guru Srimad Sukriteendra Tirtha Swamiji of Shree Kashi Math Samsthan.
