Shri Abhyankar further said those who have been felicitated at the function had never expected any felicitation for their work. We all have received these samskars from our ancestors. “Sewa is not new in our country. We are fortunate that we all are born in a sewavrati sanskriti. Those who have presented an ideal by serving the needy people in remote areas are our ideal in real sense. By felicitating such personalities we ourselves feel honuored,” he added.
