An era in the life of Elofic came to an end on the morn­ing of Au­gust 23, 2017, when its Chair­man Mo­hin­der Singh Sahni, passed away. The pa­tri­arch of the Sahni and Elofic fam­i­lies, he left a deep void amongst his fam­ily, friends, em­ploy­ees and all those who knew him. A true hu­man­ist, he strived for the wel­fare of all, while guid­ing the group through com­pet­i­tive times.

Born in Jhelum, he spent his early years in Rawalpindi. How­ever, the fam­ily had to mi­grate to In­dia af­ter par­ti­tion. Set­tling down in Pa­tiala ini­tially, his fa­ther re-estab­lished his trans­port busi­ness in Ro­htak, but later moved to Delhi.

Based on 3 strong pil­lars of ethics, hon­esty and in­tegrity, the busi­ness flour­ished and soon en­cour­aged them to ven­ture into the man­u­fac­ture of au­to­mo­tive fil­ters. The rest is his­tory. Elofic estab­lished it­self as a pop­u­lar, cus­tomeror­i­ented man­u­fac­turer of qual­ity fil­ters for var­ied ap­pli­ca­tions. As Chair­man, M S Sahni, re­ceived the Out­stand­ing En­trepreneur­ship award in 2009, pre­sented to him by the then Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia, Shri Man­mo­han Singh. With a large cus­tomer base, the com­pany is one of the largest man­u­fac­tur­ers and ex­porters of fil­ters in the coun­try with 6 state-of-the art man­u­fac­tur­ing units. Elofic owes its growth and rep­u­ta­tion to the un­tir­ing ef­forts of its founder.

A true vi­sion­ary, he firmly be­lieved in hu­man­ism and fair­play. His undy­ing love for his wife was ev­i­denced in the way he looked af­ter and cared for her dur­ing her long ill­ness due to can­cer. His con­stant com­pan­ion­ship and con­cern for her proper treat­ment, en­sured she out­lived the gloomy pre­dic­tions of her med­i­cal con­di­tion. Her demise hurt him deeply and he au­thored a book, ‘Joy of Love & Care’, to rec­ol­lect his beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries and give hope to oth­ers af­flicted by this dreaded dis­ease. Un­for­tu­nately, in the end, he also suc­cumbed to this dis­ease.

Soon af­ter es­tab­lish­ing Elofic, he set up a char­ity in the name of his fa­ther, and con­tin­ued phil­an­thropic ac­tiv­i­ties through­out his life. He will be long re­mem­bered for his per­sonal and pro­fes­sional qual­i­ties and pos­i­tive out­look on life. He was pas­sion­ate in all he did, but never crossed the line. A kar­mayogi, who al­ways strove to do right. We have lost a friend, philoso­pher and guide.
