A life may
be short, but
many people pack a lot into it. An accomplished
student life, a dynamic professional life, and a dyed-in-the-wool
personal life. Time flies when you have exams to take, and
then when you have deadlines to meet and meetings to attends,
and when there are kids to raise and bills to pay. In the
flurry of activity, you never realize your youth slip away,
your middle age come and go, and your old age dawn. And
then sets in constant monotony of life, the settling down
of dust on your on-the-go life Your children worry about
you, tied up in their own busy lives. Your spouses agonize
about you and your health. You fret about your loss of agility.
Troubles engulf you, when you search tranquility the most.
Herein comes in the "Ganguly Banaprastha Ashram".
The place, where you will find your peace in the midst of
nature. The home where you will find friends from different
walks of life, with lives converging onto a common thread.
The abode, where you can dwell in comfort, far away from
loneliness and surrounded by activity and laughter, The
place where you will have complete care, bonding and security.
The Ashram Where you can begin to derive a new meaning,
a new understanding of life.
What's Ganguly Banaprastha Ashram?
It's a unique concept, an idea and a
labour of love. The whole vision is based on the ancient
idea of Banaprastha, stage of life, where one completes
all duties of his or her personal life, and returns to the
woods to contemplate and find his inner self.
In our fast moving world, those who can't
catch up are left behind. Here, time is at one's mercy.
Every thing is architected in a manner to make life simpler,
easier and definitely more enjoyable and full. The following
pages will describe why and how that is accomplished.
His demanding job took Mr.P.K.Ganguly
all over the world, and then some more. All around, though,
he saw N.R.I.s concerned about their parents and their family
back home. They wanted to bring them over, but the climate
or the place didn't suit their parents. They couldn't possibly
leave their employment and return to take care of parents.
Quite a dilemma, this.
This is where the idea of Ganguly Banaprasthe
Ashram originated. Mr. Ganguly wanted to create a haven
which would offer the perfect solution for this predicament.
The Objective -
The objective of this Ashram is to be
a retreat where previously active individuals, who have
family living abroad or who are living in their homes by
themselves, can come and stay amidst nature, peace, friends,
care and security. It has been envisioned as a complete
sanctuary, with superlative facilities to take care of every
need and situation, so that all those living here, can be
content, safe and secure and their families reassured.
