PADAYATRAS By satpal maharaj
Satpal Maharaj has dedicated his life for the cause of people, society and thereby serving the nation. Being a social–reformer, his holistic activities have spread the message of virtue and morality. He believes an individual may come across hindrances from social, economic or political negligence. An issue related to neglect is not only a social issue but it has roots coming from poverty and ineffective political leadership. Satpal Maharaj has been very determined in rising critical issues to be addressed at the social and political platform. He has passionately and relentlessly worked towards making a difference in the lives of people who have voiced there grievances.
He organised long Padayatras to personally interact with cross-section of people living in remote areas and villages and to get first-hand feedback about issues being faced by them. During his extensive Padayatras (Walks) in the himalayan region, Satpal Maharaj came to know about the endemic problems of the area and has been actively advocating various social welfare programs to promote literacy, employment and empowerment of women. Since then he has undertaken upon himself the arduous task to find solutions to the problem of inadequate opportunities and poverty. To achieve this end, he has been striving to bring about cohesion among villages, castes, communities and blocks. Unless people rise above prejudices , the social divide will hamper the development of their region. Years of tireless efforts and extensive touring of India, Nepal and Bhutan led to a series of Padayatras.
