Smurtiwan programme

Updated: Jan 6, 2022

A beautiful exhibition of photographs and memorabilia was opened in December 2021 to document the exciting journey of our #sadbhavanacycleyatra.

The Yatras were reunited to join their Snehalaya family and friends to reflect and remember the lives of Vishal Ahire, Dr. S.N. Subbarao (Bahaiji) and Albert Kuris, all of whom participated in the rally.

Our cycle yatra took place from 2 October to 25 November 2021, marking the Diamond Jubilee of India's independence, the golden jubilee of the 1971 Indo-Pakistani war and the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation of Bangladesh, Bangabandhu. Traveling through Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Jharkhand, Bengal, and after 4280km and 55 days, it ended at Mahatma Gandhi Ashram in Naukhali, Bangladesh. Over the course of their journey, they visited 100 villages and interacted with 500 social workers who have become changemakers, learning about their work and organisations. More than 100 individuals and students participated in the rally.

This unique journey has now been preserved in the form of photographs taken by Yatras, Bhushan Deshmukh, Sandeep Kshirsagar and Ajay Wable.

The exhibition was created with painter Yogesh Harale and inaugurated by Harish Butle, Narendra Wadgaonkar, Gorakshanath Vetal, Dharmendra Kumar from Delhi, Hanumant Desai, and others who also paid tribute to Dr. S. N. Subbarao, Vishal Ahire, and Albert Kuris. The trio have also bee honoured with memorials in our newly constructed Smriti Forest at our Himmatagram.
