How else could shunning of negativity and No Negative Life be more appropriately referred to than with the truly inspiring story of Sindhutai.
Married at the age of 10 years, to a man of 30, Sindhutai Sapkal’s life has been just a walk on thorns. A victim of domestic violence, Sindhutai suffered hardships all around her – Her husband left her when she was 20 & nine months pregnant. She gave birth to her child in a cow shelter all alone – when her own family also abandoned her. Deterred but not defeated, she started begging on the railway platforms. Here, she was shocked to see the numerous abandoned children struggling every day for food and life. And here she resolved to take care of them – working hard and finding support wherever possible along the way. Today, she is a proud mother nurturing over fourteen hundred destitute children providing them with food, shelter and unconditional love.
She set up her first ashram at Mamta Bal Sadan, and now has five homes across Pune and Wardha. Sindhutai is proud that most of her children have excelled in their lives and have become lawyers and doctors. Some including her biological daughter have joined her cause and are also now running the shelter homes.
