SCHOOL CHILDRENS VISIT

Dear friends,

These are photos of Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History taken today. As you may know, entrance of the Museum is free and it’s a sewa project that my wife Namrita and I have undertaken – and it’s often been a rocky and tough road. We need your help as we depend entirely on donations. FACT is a registered trust with income tax exemption. If you wish to make a donation, you can do it online (details below) and send a mail to fgautier@rediffmail.com so that your children may learn about their true history.
