SHIMOGA: Seer of Adichunchanagiri Shakha Math Prasannanatha Swamiji said here on Sunday that one had to dedicate his or her precious time to the betterment of the society.

Speaking at the valedictory function of the three-day Jaipur Artificial Limbs Camp and opening of the Rajeshwar Health Centre organised by the Malnad Anjana (Patel) Samaj Trust of Shimoga, he called upon the people to help their fellow beings when they were in trouble.

He said that helping people was a sacred act and hence people should come forward to help others.

‘Lifeline'

The seer said the trust had become a lifeline for the children, youths and adults who were physically challenged. He said that the Anjana community people were rendering yeomen service of helping physically challenged even after they migrated to Karnataka from Rajasthan.

He expressed happiness over the trust's service and programmes chalked out to instil confidence among the physically challenged persons through organising such camps.

Rajya Sabha MP-elect Ayanur Manjunath said that society seemed to have become disabled as it had failed in fighting injustice, harassment and other evils.

He said that people in the modern times have lost helping nature and they instead concentrate on minting money, which is undesirable.

Former MLA of Jodhpur Jogaramji Patel, Shimoga Rural MLA K.G. Kumaraswamy and others were present.
