I, shri Mukund Swamirao Potdar, Age 80 years, Founder and President of “GHARKUL” and “Swami Chaya Pratisthan” request you all viewers of this website to consider following few lines sympathetically.
I am from a common family and come up by my own efforts, hard and sincere work. Right from my young age, I had sympathy & passion for old age people and cared for them, within and outside my family. In order to help the mankind and society at large, I started Gharkul by pouring all my own self earned income without any expectation or return. Later realizing the fact that it is a huge job, big responsibility and has to run for ever and is not a one man’s job and cannot be handled single handedly, formed a trust in the name of “Swami Chaya Pratisthan” with likeminded people. With my own endless & tireless efforts, Confidence, Zeal to work and Passion for old age people, help from many philanthropists, and above all blessing from almighty, I have been able to reach this goal from a rented out house to big modern shelter for aged people on this huge 1 acre 14 Gunthas of land. Yet the temple and there are many more objectives of the Pratisthan are pending. I appeal for a financial help from you all in this task.
In this regards I should not forget to thank all those have helped me sumptuously up till now. It is said that for every successful man there is a women behind, like wise I should not forget to express my gratitude to my late wife Lata who has supported me morally & financially to a great extent.
I appeal you all to donate generously for this noble cause. Your donations will be eligible for Section 80(G) deduction.
