शाळेत असतांना, नववी-दहावीत बाबा आमटे आणि त्यांच्या कार्यावर एक धडा होता, तेव्हा पहिल्यांदा आनंदवनाविषयी वाचलेलं. पुढे वाचनाच्या आवडीमुळे अभ्यासक्रमाबाहेरची त्यांच्यावरची काही पुस्तकं वाचली. मन त्यावेळी भारावून गेलेलं … एखादा माणूस कसा काय आपलं घरदार सोडून एवढ्या निःस्पृहपणे लोकांसाठी -कुष्टरोग्यांसाठी हे सगळं करू शकतो? कुठून एवढी इच्छाशक्ती येते, प्रेरणा मिळते ? बरं, ते एकटेच नाहीत तर… Continue reading आठवणीतलं पान …
