Vrindavan, 2017.09.13 (VT): As the Kathiya Babas’ 84-Krosh Braj Mandal Parikrama is underway, another group is also undertaking the pilgrimage, albeit with a different approach. The Akhil Bharat Varshiya Maheshwari Mahila Mandal is combining their parikrama with social service.
The Maheshwari group is a national-level organization which aims to empower women through literacy, health, skill development and educational programs. Women from all over the country have joined the parikrama, which began on September 8th.
Social welfare services are being offered at every step of the journey.
Recently, after performing pooja of Govardhan at Giriraj Talhati, the group proceeded to Talvan, where they held a swasthya shivir (health camp). At the camp, residents of the holy dham received free health checkups and vaccines.
