Finolex Pipes at Pandharpur Yatra

Finolex Industries to donate 50000 bags to Warkaris during Ashadi Palakhi Procession

The Palakhi (Palanquin) Procession of Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj from Alandi and that of Sant Tukaram Maharaj from Dehu leaves amidst the sounds of cymbals, mridangas and chants of Vitthal for Pandharpur. Every year, Finolex Industries Limited (FIL) makes a notable contribution during the palakhi procession. The pilgrims (warkaris), participate in the wari from different parts of Maharashtra & Finolex distributes resources useful to them. This year, FIL is giving away more than 50,000 bags which are strong & durable that will help the pilgrims in their long journey. Besides these, the warkaris will also be given Rajgira ladoo, which is very nutritious, at various stages of the journey.

On this special occasion, Nitin Kulkarni, President, Sales and Marketing, Finolex Industries Ltd. said, “Finolex Industries has developed a special relationship with farmers over the last few decades. Many of these farmers participate in the wari every year. Finolex, known for its quality and its commitment to social responsibility, has decided to contribute waterproof bags, medical supplies etc. to make the journey of the warkaris comfortable”. He further added, “Festivals are a great way to connect to people & we have always been a part of large religious congregation – be it at Kumbh in Nashik or Simhasta in Ujjain, the Ambaji Padyatra in Gujarat or the Rathyatra in Jagganath Puri.  We feel it is a great way to reach out to our larger audience & we also find pleasure as a company to help and support people in these ways.”

FIL has also retained the sponsorship with AIR. We have decided to entirely sponsor the commentary of the procession. For this, two independent vans of the All India Radio will be available for live commentary and reporting of the procession. The AIR studio will be in the van itself from where the developments of the wari will be conveyed to the listeners.” said Nitin.

Medical camps are organized at different stages during wari in which a team of doctors & nurses will cater to the medical needs of the warkaris. Besides, a medical van has been deployed on the entire wari route to provide other medical treatment to the warkaris. The van will help in treating minor problems like fever, headache, a bandage on injuries, cough, indigestion, weakness, allergy, dehydration, problems of eyes and ears etc.

FIL is also assisting the Pandharpur Police & Nagarpalika in putting up direction and public awareness boards.  In addition, 50,000 Haripaath (shloka books) will be given to the warkari. Finolex will also be felicitating the police officials with mementos for their exemplary work during the waari.

Warkaris participate from different parts of Maharashtra namely Marathwada, Khandesh, Vidarbha, Western Maharashtra, Konkan, Mumbai & Nashik. Finolex takes a keen interest in reaching out to the community at large during religious and social gatherings thus fostering a spirit of oneness.
