Samast Mahajan provides immediate treatment to sick, injured animals, Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari greenlights 11 ambulances
Samast Mahajan, for the first time in February this year, set a wonderful example to Sid the voiceless in the city of Mumbai, providing medical care to sick and injured animals with Animal Hospital on Wheels. Now, this service is going to be available round the clock with 11 new ambulances, covering more area and helping far more animals. 11 new such ambulances were inaugurated at the hands of Hon Governor Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari at Raj Bhavan.
This service is being implemented by the grace and inspiration of Rashtrasant Pujya Namramuni Maharaj Saheb, besides Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, Union Animal Husbandry Minister Parshottam Rupala, Maharashtra’s Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Mangal Prabhat Lodha and Hon Minister of Revenue Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil. Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari said, “Yug Pradhan Acharya Panya’s Chandrashekhar Vijayji inspired all Mahajans and Rashtrasant Pujya Shri Namramuni Maharaj Saheb with his grace, compassion, and cooperation. The importance of service and humanity is prime. When one takes service as his mantra, then the country is truly free. It is a fact that even when we speak, many small living creatures die. That is why Jain monks used to wear masks since centuries. Corona taught the rest of the world to wear masks.”
Citing an example the Hon Governor “Once a sage was doing penance, when an injured pigeon fell on his lap. A hunter who struck it said. “this is my food.” The sage said he will not let it die, and offered as much of his body’s flesh as the weight of the pigeon in exchange. When the Mahatma cut his flesh and weighed it, the weight of the pigeon kept on increasing. Undaunted, the Mahatma also started adding his meat. God then trevealed how he appeared in the form of a hunter and blessed him. Service and compassion are very important. I bow to you all Mahajans and trustees Paresh Shah and Girish Bhai Shah. We are all very happy with your service.”
Added Girish Bhai, “Humans, animals and nature have special importance in this world. Our culture and scriptures have proved this fact before Science reiterates it. Whenever and wherever we get the privilege of helping the voiceless in one form or another, I consider it to be the grace of God and the true meaning of my human life.
“Now with the number of ambulances being 11, treatment for animals will be available immediately in any corner of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. To fulfill this objective, we will divide Mumbai into eleven divisions and deploy one ambulance in each department. I look forward to being of more service to the voiceless.”
