Lakshya Foundation journey from 2004 - 2019
Lots of Memories, Stories and Emotions......
4th Oct 2019 Lakshya Foundation completes 10 years and the Journey still continues.......
It is said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This single step was taken by Mrs Anuradha Prabhudesai and some of her like minded friends on this day 10 years ago. Thus was born Lakshya Foundation. A small but dedicated band of volunteers who shared her vision that the saga of heroism of the uniformed forces of this nation must be spread far and wide to the length and breadth of our country. We felt that the growing disconnect between the civilians and Armed Forces needed to addressed on an experential level. Gradually the Lakshya family grew under the watchful eyes of Mrs Prabhudesai, or Anu Maasi as she is fondly known. Be it interactions with soldiers in far flung border areas, felicitation of Kargil War veterans or celebrating Diwali with soldiers or mega exhibition cum events like Mera Desh Meri Pehchan or Yuvaprerana, the Lakshya family has left it unique and distinctive stamp on the way our programs are organised and executed.
Our biggest reward is of ourse the pat on the back and the appreciation in the eyes of our brothers and sisters in the armed forces. It is indeed our honour that our Foundationhas received appreciation and recognition from the armed forces as well as civil society. Our dream of being bards of the indian armed forces is slowly coming to reality with the journey of a decade
So as we celebrate our Raising Day today all of us Lakshaits are filled with a sense of joy and achievement but we are also acutely conscious of the onerous responsibility of the tasks that lie ahead
Yes we have miles to go before we rest.
