In a small village, just off the Konkan coast nestled between a patch of hills you can hear the cackling of little children running home after school. Chikhalgaon, the birthplace of Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak is also home to Lokmanya Sarvajanik Dharmaday Nyas (the Lokmanya Public Charitable Trust) that runs a day-boarding and residential school for over 450 children from in and around Chikhalgaon village.Drawing from Tilak’s thoughts that education is the only foolproof path to development, a group of public spirited persons put their minds together and brought alive this Trust in 1982.
