Saurashtra is known for its affinity and service spirit, but to bring this spirit of benevolence to the busy streets of Mumbai demands solid efforts and Dr. Uday Modi has kept true to his roots by bringing the same love for charity to the streets of Mumbai. After successfully completing the task of providing tiffins everyday to the deprived, poverty-stricken old people living abandoned lives, Dr. Uday Modi has finally made his vision come to life. The old age home that he always wanted to build for the old abandoned parents, is finally taking shape. “Maa Baap nu Mandir” as Dr. Uday Modi puts it, is indeed a temple for all the impoverished parents who have nobody to call their own.
“Ma Baap Nu Mandir” is home to all the adrift, abandoned, elderly people who are not capable of earning due to their old and weak physique. With the lives getting busier and competition getting cut throat, nobody wants to spare time in taking care of their old people and this results in so many old people being left on their own for living. Dr. Uday Modi belongs to Amreli and has inculcated the service spirit of saurashtra in his blood from his late father Himmatlal Harjivandas Modi who used to provide slippers to the construction workers in their locality. Humanity is the best religion and this wonderful human being is a living example of it. After receiving good response for his tiffin service for elderly people, he has succeeded in personifying his vision of building an old age home for the needful old parents who are not capable of taking care of their selves. “Ma Baap Nu Mandir” is a shelter for all the elderly people who do not have anywhere to go, who do not have anyone to cal home and who do not have enough money to enjoy the privileges of a good happy life.
“Ma Baap Nu Mandir” is more of a shelter for the abandoned old parents who are living in darkness with scarcity of resources and food to aid their worn out body. It not only promises shelter, it also has its own fitness studio where they can practice yogasana, recreational activity room to help them enjoy their favorite arts. Dr. Uday Modi also provides regular medical checkups and medicines for them. Ma Baap nu Mandir is more of a party house where one can happily spend the last days of their lives with their fellow old mates who also have been abandoned by their kids. They have access to clean food, clean water, best of hygiene and best of everything that they would have expected to receive from their own kids.
The whole Modi family joins in this seva yagna. His kids make sure they also contribute whatever tiny share they could contribute to their father’s efforts to help the poor and needy. Dr. Uday Modi is a living example of how a will will find a way. If you have a good initiative to help people, god will provide all the help you need to fulfill that.
