Curtain raiser on Shri Laxman Madhav Rao Inamdarji

Curtain raiser on Shri Laxman Madhav Rao Inamdarji 

Shri Lakshman Rao Inamdar, popularly known as “Vakil Saheb” was born in Khatav, a village 130 kms south of Pune on 21st September 1917 in a large joint family having seven brothers (he was third among them) and two sisters. His father Shri Madhav Raoji was a canal Inspector. Madhav Rao had six sisters, out of these six sisters four became widows and moved into their ancestral house along with their children. Shri Madhav Rao had a transferable job and was constantly moving from one place to other, compelling him, to always maintain two establishments to save his family from frequently being uprooted and making adjustments in new locations. He was forced to maintain not only his large family but his four widow sisters and their children within the meagre income he earned. Living in these conditions Vakil Saheb learned the art of caring, sharing and coexistence very early in life. This childhood learning made him a true advocate of teamwork which is the cornerstone of ‘cooperation’.
