After years of abuse, Lakshmi Bai finally finds a safe home

Life had deal Lakshmi a hard hand. She was widowed at a very young age. She raised her son by working as a maid in several houses. She earned very little and struggled hard to raise her son.

When he grew up, she found him a wife. She had a hope that he would start earning and she could finally rest.

He went to Mumbai to find work. However, he never came back. She lodged a missing complaint in Mumbai. The family never found out if he went missing or abandoned them.

With her son missing, her troubles increased. She was over 70 years old but went back to working as a maid in homes. She was very weak, but she used to go to work to earn a square meal for herself and her unemployed daughter-in-law. Her daughter-in-law began torturing her regularly. She would verbally and physically abuse her. Lakshmi Bai became depressed and fell ill frequently because of age and abuse.

At last the neighbors took pity on Lakshmi. They decided to rescue her from her torture at the hands of her daughter-in-law. An elderly neighbor having heard of Priyadarshini Seva Mandal called the organization. He informed them about the sad plight of Lakshmi Bai. Lady Volunteers from Priyadarshini Seva Mandal reached the area where Lakshmi stayed. They and brought her to the home.

Within a short time, Lakshmi recovered from her depression. She now lives a peaceful life with no need to work.

Priyadarshini Seva Mandali runs a Home called NEST for the abandoned elderly senior citizens. Their kin abandons them or deserted by their children because of poverty or serious illnesses.

Now, Lakshmi bai has a good quality of life, nutritious meals, decent clothes, and toiletries. She even receives regular medical checkups, medicines, and medical treatment whenever required.

Lakshmi finally a place she could call home at the NEST. The residents at NEST are now her family. They share their joys, sorrows and all their experiences in their lives.

Without the support and care of Priyadarshini Seva Mandali, Lakshmi would have spent her old age going through abuse. The home has given her a new life and hope in her golden years.
