“Only the land which mothered the Gita, could have brought forth such a Karmayogi; only in the land of Himavan, Vindhya and Sindhu can you meet such a lion who practises self-restraint.
Only in the country where flows the Ganges can you find such a ‘Kalpavriksha’ which has for its fruit, auspiciousness alone.......”
A life which began humbly in the village of Timtala in Amaravati district, Maharashtra, by sheer pursuit of excellence, by indomitable will, courage and total dedication to the cause and ideals he cherished rose to the pinnacle of glory and in the process of carving out of rock, a magnificent monument to one of the greatest sons of this Motherland, turned his own life into LIFE EVERLASTING. His life and work come as an answer to the vague cries of men, about the lack of opportunities, even for service. Opportunities knock at everyone’s door. To one who is ready to transform oneself first, those very same opportunities become the vehicles to change one’s life into LIFE EVERLASTING.
