This beggar woman teaches us that a richness of the heart outweighs that of a full money in the bank. An elderly woman beggar in Ajmer will donate her entire savings of Rs 6.61 lakhs to the bereaved families of the Pulwama Attack families. According to sources, the beggar identified as Nandini Sharma though had died in August 2018 had left a will stating that all her savings will be used in favour of the nation and to help society. As such, when the nation was struck with the Pulwama attack, the trustees decided to donate the money to the families of those that were martyred.

Her savings are reported to have come from her begging outside the Ambe Mata Temple at Bajrangarh in Ajmer.

It is also reported that since her demise, her trustees had been waiting for the right moment to donate the money when the Pulwama attack happened and the trustees didn’t see a moment nobler than the February 14 terror attack.

“The trustees came to the district administration office on Wednesday and expressed their desire to donate money to the Chief Minister Relief Fund for the attack victims. The legal cell completed the formalities following which the amount was accepted and a certificate was issued to them”, said Ajmer collector Vishwa Mohan Sharma.

Special prayers will be held by the devotees at the temple for her generosity.
