Dates: May 2024

On May 1st, 2024, Pratibimb Charitable Trust organized a community wedding in Vikramgadh. Pravin Manker, along with three of his volunteers, Tripti Nakhare, Bhushan Nakhare, and Sushma Sureka, attended the wedding.

This community wedding aimed to provide underprivileged couples with a beautiful and memorable ceremony.

Marriage is a social and legal recognition for a couple to live together with dignity and provide legitimacy to their progeny. In several economically backward regions marriage is an unaffordable ritual and couples choose to live together with heads lowered, avoiding eye contact, socially ostracised. Pratibimb had the good fortune of funding a collective marriage ceremony of nine couples of the Dhartari Samaj at Vikramgad, Palghar district, Maharashtra state on 1st May 2024.

The next stage would be to provide a solar-powered water pump, storage tank and water filtration system to provide clean drinking water.

The whole project is funded 100% by Pratibimb Charitable Trust, whose core activity is conducting life-improvement programs called Life and Breath (basic course) and Life is Mind Body Spirit (LiMBS – the advance course). These are programs that teach breathing exercises, meditation and laws of living. The funds collected from students during the conduct of these programs are utilised for such charitable work. (Check our upcoming courses here)

This work has inspired students to voluntarily donate handsomely. Pratibimb Charitable Trust is now planning to fund the construction of two more such dams in 2021. We are just waiting for the first project to be declared ready before we embark on the next two.
