Sathya Sai Housing Project In K’para Reaches Final Stage
BHUBANESWAR | Monday, March 30, 2009 | Pioneer News Service | Paradip

The Sathya Sai Housing Project at Samjori, Tikhiri and Mahanangala villages in Kendrapara district is on the verge of completion and the keys of the houses will be handed over to the beneficiaries soon by Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba himself at Prasanthi Nilayam in the first week of April.

It is worth mentioning here that after hearing the plight of the villagers affected by floods last year, Baba had declared to construct economical houses funded by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Prasanthi Nilayam with technical expertise from L&T for the poor villagers. Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Orissa had reached to the interior areas of the villages during flood to distribute relief. The organisation also carried out surveys in the marooned villages and selected beneficiaries to be included under the housing scheme.

Thereafter, a target was fixed to complete the houses within two months. However the same could not be completed within the stipulated time due to inaccessible road conditions for transporting construction materials, earmarking of lands for constructing the houses and other various factors.

However, due to the tireless efforts of the devotees of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Orissa and the grace of Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the project is in the final stage.

A total number of 60 houses have been constructed in these three villages of Kendrapara district under the guidance of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samiti, Paradip.

It is reported that the Gruhapravesha festival is likely to be carried out during second week of April.

It is learnt from the youth coordinator of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Samiti, Paradip, Narahari Subudhi, that the beneficiaries of the houses are travelling to Puttaparthi on March 31, 2009 by Prasanthi Express to receive the house keys from Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
