Late Indulal C Kamdar


Indulal C Kamdar leads by example. His life sets an example for not just senior citizens but all citizens. Extremely disciplined, this highly intelligent activist is a valuable asset to society and to Manav Seva Sangh where he leads the activities of the day care centre as a volunteer.


As a businessman, Mr Kamdar was instrumental in expanding his family business through his entrepreneurship and travel abroad. In his long innings as a trader, he was determined never to pay a bribe for a contract and yet managed very well through his spirit of enterprise and hard work.  His strength was his research and the grasp of the law. Whenever somebody tried to deceive him, he surprised them by throwing the rulebook at them citing chapter and verse.


Humble, easy-going and reticent to a fault, Mr Kamdar refuses to accept any official position but is most satisfied if he gets to help elderly people in distress. He was instrumental in getting started the first dedicated helpline for senior citizens in Mumbai at Manav Seva Sangh, helps organise many tournaments and guides the elderly on the entire gamut of issues facing them. He is the go-to person for a senior citizen in distress whether he has a medical, financial, property-related, family-related, psychological issues. He pursues his cause with a missionary zeal and has collected an army of followers who have greatly benefitted by associating.  


A veritable encyclopedia of information on almost every subject from law to health to governance, he has influenced many lives with his selfless guidance, support and help. Blessed with a vibrant personality that lightens up the atmosphere wherever he goes, Mr Kamdar is a role model for the elderly. While he loves to help others, he remains fiercely independent himself.
