*TREKFIT ADVENTURES 🌄🌅🍀🐅*
*Trip to Anandwan-Hemalkasa-Somnath*
Trip dates:-19-24th January
i.e 5 nights and 6 days.
Needless to say, everyone at some point of their lives has heard about Amte family’s remarkable social projects given suitable abode at these three places. Anandwan (www.anandwan.in) is the realization of a dream of one man – Baba Amte and his team of volunteers. Founded in 1948 and registered in 1951, Anandwan today is a self contained village.
After marriage, Baba began working for leprosy struck patients just outside Warora, and started 11 weekly clinics there. He later started Anadwan which literally means ‘Forest of joy’.
Baba visited Hemalkasa (www.lokbiradariprakalp.org), Gadchiroli in 1973 and found the condition of the Madia Gond tribe there to be appalling. The area was completely cut off from civilization. Illiteracy being a total and medical care completely unheard of, malnutrition, leprosy, malaria and tuberculosis were rife. As daunting as the conditions then were, in 1974, Baba’s son Dr. Prakash and his wife Mandakini volunteered and built a small hut for themselves and a big hut on the land of 50 acres given by the government. Not only did they cure patients, but also built a scientific conscience in them.
Amte’s Animal Orphanage or the ‘Amte’s Animal Ark’ is a must visit here. Baba had envisioned Somnath to be a village where cured leprosy patients could live together and build a village with their own blood, sweat and toil.
Present day Somnath has about 550 residents, most leprosy patients, and 1,000 acres of 1,300 acres which Baba Amte was allowed to retain, is cultivated.
Ancient philosophies suggest that God lies in every particle of this universe. When you look at Hemalkasa – Somnath – Anandwan you’ll be reassured of this. It will not be hard for one to find God here, surely.
