Testimonials

"This has been a most rewarding afternoon and has opened my eyes to the problems faced by many and the efforts of highly public-spirited individuals who run half-way homes like Paripurnata to ensure their rehabilitation. These public spirited individuals are our real heroes and society and the nation must recognize their valiant efforts. Thank you for opening my eyes."
H.E Shri M.K. Narayanan, Governor of West Bengal

"I was happy to visit this halfway home for those for whom the society does so little. I was present when the new home for Paripurnata was opened. Inspite of many difficulties this home has been doing wonderful work to rehabilitate the unfortunate inmates. But greater the difficulties the more you strive to overcome and serve those who are afflicted with mental problems. I wish to record my best wishes to the home and to its mentors."
Justice Chittatosh Mookerjee, Former Chief Justice of Calcutta and Bombay High Courts
