Visit to Dayanand Ashraya Dhama Durable Link to this BLOG
In 2005, I had an opportunity to visit Sri Swami Dayanand Ashraya Dhama, a shelter for young children run by seer Chidrupanand Saraswatiji. It was a touching experience, just due to the way the shelter is operated in the most minimum of resources, and the enthusiasm and spritely health radiated by the young residents.

In a residential school without TV, the students are kept informed the old-fashioned way.

The ashram is a good place to visit, set in remote area, surrounded by forest and river.
