Once on a day of May, 1976, Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ was going to Sirohi, On the way, he saw that a truck had collided with a passenger bus near Pindwara, Sirohi. The accident was very serious. Dr. ‘Manav’ immediately rushed to the accident spot to rescue the injured people and got them admitted in civil hospital, Sirohi. He used to visit hospital everyday to enquire about condition of the injured people. But on a particular day, due to some urgent assignment, he couldn't make his visit to the hospital. But the very next morning, he heard someone knocking on his door. He opened the door and found a weak person standing along with his 10-12 year old daughter. His eyes were full of tears. Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ could identify the girl, as she was one of the injured persons admitted in the hospital. He asked the man about the purpose for meeting him so early in the morning. The man politely replied- “Babuji! You did not come to hospital to visit us the other evening, my daughter is since then, crying to meet you & want to know about your absence the other day”. The man and his daughter were totally unknown to Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’.His ten day visit to the hospital turned the lives of many patients, as Dr. ‘Manav’ met each & every single patient as with love & affection, as if they all are his own family members. Dr. Kailash ‘Manav' is very sentimental and a kind hearted person from the very beginning. After this incident. Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ never missed any opportunity to visit the hospital daily and meet the injured persons admitted there. After some months, Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ was transferred to Udaipur. In Udaipur too, he developed the habit to visit the government hospital every day, meet the patients and purchase medicines for these patients from his own money.
An incident proved to be a turning point in the life of Dr. Kailash 'Manav'. On a day, he was on his regular visit to the hospital and was meeting the patients and the kitchen staff was serving the food to the patients. Dr. Kailash 'Manav' saw an old man who was eating one chapatti and hiding 2 chapattis beside his pillow. Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ became curious to know the reason behind it. He went to the old man namely Kishna Ji Bhil and asked “Baa sab. (Sir) what is the matter, are you not hungry enough? Why have you hide the chapatties beside your pillow? The eyes of the old man filled with tears. He replied- Babuji! I am still hungry, but my brother & son, who are taking care of me, have nothing to eat. Whatever money, we had borrowed for my treatment is completely spent on my medicines. If I eat all of the these 3 chapatties, my son & brother would remain hungry, so I have kept these chapatties for them. After saying these words, the old man started crying bitterly, as he could not speak much beacause of his weak condition. This incident moved the heart of Dr. Kailash ‘Manav’ very deeply. On the very next day during the Dusheera Pooja, he told his friend about this incident. They all decided to help the patients like Kishna Ji. They decided to collect a fistful of flour from neighbors, bake chapattis and distribute them among the attendants of the poor patients in the hospital daily.
A History was created on 23rd October, 1985 when the collection of a fistful of flour and service to the patients was given the name of “NARAYAN SEVA” . Smt. Kamla Devi Agarwal, wife of Dr. Kailash 'Manav' is a religious and a pious lady. She stood by her husband in this humanitarian endeavor. His daughter Kalpana (now Mrs. Kalpana Goyal) was always at the command of her parents and always assisted her mother in baking chapatties.
This is how “NARAYAN SEVA” existed with a handful of flour- which stands to this day as “Narayan Seva Sansthan”, Udaipur with many records, achievements, highlights and landmarks to its credit.
