Community Initiative by Gemstoneuniverse and Astromandir! An opportunity given by God to serve his elderly subjects who have been abandoned by their kith and kin and we feel blessed!
On 18th September 2010 during the holy Ganesha festival , Gemstoneuniverse and Astromandir was given an opportunity to be a part of the social services rendered by Aashraya Seva Trust and Kadamba Friends Association to serve the almighty’s elderly subjects.
“Aashraya’ a home for the aged was started for the purpose of serving aged women in the fag-end of their lives that have been abandoned by their kith and kin. This Home was visualized as a residence with a homely atmosphere so that the senior Citizen’s would be not feel up- rooted from the surroundings to which they were accustomed to and to fill their remaining years with much better comfort, care and attention.
The team at Gemstoneuniverse.com and Astromandir feel blessed that in the IT city of Bangalore that houses several corporate bigwigs we were given the divine opportunity of Annadana-the divine gift of donating grain and serving the elderly.
As a part of the programme a divine Ganpathi Homa was performed where we prayed for these elderly family members of ours and also for all our patrons at Gemstoneuniverse.com and Astromandir. It was a moving experience!
