Mamaji gave the message of education, health, and cleanliness. Parsingh Bhuria, who arrived from Banswara district, told me that I had joined my maternal uncle in my childhood itself. Since then, I have been coming to this village with my family and friends. Mamaji, who gave us the message of education, health, and cleanliness, dedicated his entire life to the upliftment of the poor class. His inspiration is always with us.
A young devotee, Dinesh, arrived from the Kushalgarh area with his wife and small children. Who believed that our family members had been coming here? We, too, have been coming here since childhood. Now our children are also coming with us. All things in life become better by coming to my uncle’s place.
