Share a Smile - Priceless Happiness with “Chaakri – Seva” !!

Contribute for a good cause and earn priceless Punya karma (Good Deeds) !! 

Someone might have offered you a helping hand when you were down anytime in your life, volunteering and donating for good cause gives you the opportunity to pay that favor forward. Contributing to a good cause gives us HAPPINESS that can’t be bought by any amount of money!!


I was having lunch last weekend with a few of my friends who have been a strong pillar of our lives directly and indirectly. We were having a discussion about "Women Empowerment" and this particular cause came in our discussion. They shared a great story on how a joining hand can make a huge difference to someone's lives & bring smiles on thousands. 



Devi Gupta, is one such woman. Physically and mentally abused for years by her husband, Chaakri holistically supported Devi by not only giving her a job but becoming her support system for everything - children's education, health, counselling, financial management, etc. Today, Devi lives a life of confidence and dignity. And has become the support of many other women in her village. Chaakri employs 90 women as of now... With your help, Chaakri can employ many more such victims of domestic abuse and provide them with a life of dignity,

Chaakri, a fully volunteer-run organization, was launched in 2005 to promote employment and support to tribal women in a rural district of Raigad. All the women come from marginalized backgrounds & are trained to make khakhras. Today these khakhras are sold internationally, a matter of great pride for these women. Chaakri signifies ‘seva’ and ‘service’ in the Hindi language. “Privileged are those who support the less privileged” is their tagline, you can find more details on their website www.sanisa.org This organization help creating employment for needy women through the skill identification, motivation, capacity building, and innovation. It helps to create lots of employment opportunities for underprivileged women in a rural part of India. 


Urge you to support this good cause & help them collectively raise money to empower underprivileged women!

Thank You - આભાર !!


હોય ભલે ને થોડી કુટેવો,
હુ તો તોયે મલવા જેવો,
સૌ પુછે છે, સારુ શુ છે?
સાચો ઉતર કોને દેવો !

આપ ભલે ને હોય ગમે તે,
હુ ય નથી કાઇ જેવો તેવો..

દપણઁ ની ઉમર વધી છે,
હુ તો છુ અેનો ને અેવો..☺

One less year in life to achieve what I have been trying to and what I have planned to achieve. Well, that's the Inspiration!! An inspiration to run even faster, learn fast and act quickly, years are just passing!!

On this day, I recap the last whole year and realize that there were many incidents and events where I feel I improved, there are few things where I still think, I could have done better but I could not. The problem is, we all keep justifying our decision to prove ourself right! Later in life, you feel, you did a mistake. Thanks to all the experience, You learn In Any Case" For times of success which will always be happy memories and for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness. I must say, self-introspection helps. You are all charming gardeners who make our souls blossom!! Thank you all my family and friends around who have been helping and pumping power energy every single day! You all are a real gem in my life, You have been helping in many ways, no matter its good or bad time!

I had a wonderful birthday with family and friends. I spend those beautiful moments in fellowship with my loved ones and missed all those who were not with me. I thank God for all his love bestowed on me the last year, I cherish each day and each moment of the year. I believe this year is the year of restoration in all that I do and that I could not do last year which I believe I could. Thank you all for wishing me and standing by me the last year and all the years. I promise this year, I will be better!!

Keep Reading!
Love,
