Inviting widows to auspicious functions is still considered a taboo but Mr. Patel broke the stereotype. He invited widows from five districts of north Gujarat and widows from Banaskantha, Mehsana, Sabarkantha, Patan and Aravalli districts were special guests at the marriage venue. According to Mr. Patel, It was his heartfelt desire that the couple should be blessed by widows, who are mostly neglected by the society.Widow.1JPG

Around 500 widows, who came from poor families, were also given a milking cow each so that they become self-sufficient financially.
