Hari Kr­ishna Ex­ports’ On­go­ing Char­i­ta­ble Acts

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Hari Kr­ishna Ex­ports Pvt. Ltd. or­gan­ised ‘Band­han Snehna’ for 66 lucky cou­ples in early De­cem­ber last year. The event took place in the pres­ence of dig­ni­taries in­clud­ing yoga guru Ramde­vji ma­haraj; Gu­jarat min­is­ter Nanub­hai Vanani; renowned au­thor Jay Vasavda; and founder of Hari Kr­ishna Ex­ports Pvt. Ltd., Savji Dho­lakia.

Dho­lakia said, “We started the tra­di­tion of mass mar­riage ( sa­muh la­gan) a few years ago af­ter I got in­vi­ta­tions to at­tend 20 mar­riages from staff mem­bers dur­ing the wed­ding sea­son. I thought, in­stead of peo­ple spend­ing enor­mous amounts on their wed­dings, why not have a sin­gle cer­e­mony which turns out to be eco­nom­i­cal and mag­nif­i­cent as well?”

More than 7,500 guests at­tended the func­tion to bless the 66 newly-wed cou­ples, who re­ceived a trousseau kit com­pris­ing di­a­mond jew­ellery and house­hold items.

The com­pany be­lieves in nur­tur­ing its em­ploy­ees and se­cur­ing their fu­ture. A sin­gle cheque of I1 crore was granted to the fam­ily of a de­ceased di­a­mond artist as the com­pany had safe­guarded the em­ployee by pur­chas­ing a life in­sur­ance pol­icy for him.
