I was very happy looking at the cleanliness maintained in the Akshaya Patra kitchen. Everyone has to take part in this service towards the society. I wish to extend my helping hand in any way possible towards The Akshaya Patra Foundation. And I pray to god that Akshaya Patra continues its work in the future and reach out to many more in the service of the society.

Akshaya Patra's blue bus is a symbol of hope for the thousands of children across the country. The bus signifies that the child will not go hungry and we thought that the best way to be a part of this programme is by donating the vehicle.
