Hats off to each and every volunteer and thanks for all your efforts and time.. Without your service many ppl would have missed following Paryushan menu and doing minimum Chouvihar as well..

Everything was fantastic. The one and only suggestion I would have to improve this would be to add a vegan option if possible. Truly speaking, this is outstanding. Thank you so much for making this possible.

Jai Jinendra.

    kejal Kothari
  • Many many thanks for 'Paryushan Meals'. It was such a boon. My husband works in NY and usually comes home @ around 8:30pm. It would not have been possible to do Chauvihar during Paryushan without this great facility. In these times of rush and hectic lifestyle, it becomes difficult to stick to certain timings. Lots of Anumodna for people who volunteered to take out time out of their busy schedule to distribute food. We would be interested in similar kind of arrangement in future - be it Tithi days or so. And once again thanks for this wonderful arrangement.
