Sarubai Laxman Tambe family
A "single mom" Indian family story.

We have supported the Tambe family, since November, 2002, when Ananda visited the Ellora caves.

We remodeled their "shell" of a restaurant, in 2003; built this family home for them in 2005-6; then a garden plot next door; and the youngest son (Ravi) was supported for 7 years of English medium School. Now, mother earns well-enough from the Restaurant and her garden-labor at the Caves; plus Sagar is 17+, also earning. Therefore, we have minimalized our family support here, except for Sita and her ever-evolving education program.

This was Sita's 16th Birthday party, Aug. 30, 2009 ..
August 1st, 2009 her sister Sunita gave birth to her first baby .. Chandrani (means "moon queen").

This Link will take you to a separate page for the Tambe family story.

This family became one of Ananda's home-bases when in India,
especially during early days for construction of the Advaita Ananda Samadhi Ashram, nearby.

We maintain close contact with
the two middle children .. Sita, and her younger brother Sagar.
Sagar is now working in the restaurant of a high-quality lodge here in Ellora;
and Sita is
a precious jewel, doing lots of studies, which will help her future service to village girls and women.

Thus, through this vehicle, they will find their own means of

"returning the gift" of such all inclusive family support the Samadhi Hermitage, USA provided, 2002 - 2014.
