Reflection on completing my 51 years of life
I am completing 51 years of my life on tomorrow (7 th May) this year. I have already decided to live for a total of 100 meaningful years. So now I have only 49 years remaining & there are lot many things to do, before I depart from this world. I have started this kind of “countdown” from my last birthday only. It helped me in becoming more focused & choosy regarding utilizing my time for meaningful activities. Now I don't want to waste time for smaller & meaningless things. I became more affirmative, assertive because of this changed way of looking towards my own life. My communication became more effective & impactful. I am enjoying & experiencing more life, joy, satisfaction & contentedness in my living. I am feeling more energetic with good physical & mental stamina. All this could happen only because of the grace of God & well wishes of friends like you. Keeping my last day of my life in the background of my daily routine, like the antivirus program working in our computers also helped a lot.
Now I want to invite you to think & reflect back like this & experience the joy & meaningfulness of life like me. GIVING is a very simple way of experiencing it. As a friend & well wisher of you, I want you to start doing something about GIVING in your life. It could be in form of money, time, love & affection, skills and or any other form. You can find out someone/something where your GIVING can make a significant change in someone's life.
One way of doing it by contributing to various PRAYAS-Sevankur activities. The recurring expenses of Prayas-Sevankur are around 15 Lakhs Rs. this year. In addition to this we need to start & complete our own building "Prayas-Sevankur Bhavan" of 9500 sq. feet at Farshi Stop, Amravati. It will cost around 100 Lakhs Rs. It will be the homely training centre (actually a recharging station) for the children, youths and all others.
I expect from you a monthly or yearly voluntary donation for PRAYAS-Sevankur, as my birthday gift along with your well wishes. It will help me in concentrating on the real content of my work & not on thinking & collecting the funds, to run the activities.
The monthly / yearly contribution could be any amount you think you could give. You can give it by giving standing instructions to your bank to transfer the amount to the bank account of PRAYAS (details given below) every month or year on a specific day of the month or the year. Another way could be you can give it to our collection volunteers. (You yourself can become such a collection volunteer for minimum of 10 contributors.) You also can ask & motivate your other family members & friends to start GIVING this way.
In addition to the monthly / yearly contribution, one time donation for the "Building Fund" is also needed & expected.
