Emotional Obeisance to Puneeth Rajkumar at Shaktidhama in Mysuru

Mysuru, October 30, 2021 (www.justkannada.in): The inmates of Shaktidhama Orphanage and Oldage home in Mysuru paid an emotional obeisance to actor Puneeth Rajkumar who died of cardiac arrest in Bengaluru yesterday.
The girl children inmates of Shaktidhama paid an emotional obeisance to the actor by singing a popular Kannada film song ‘Bombe Helutaite… Matte Helutaite…’ from Puneeth’s blockbuster movie ‘Rajakumaara.’
Puneeth Rajkumar was the main patron of Shaktidhaama, which was established by his mother the late Parvathamma Rajkumar. He supported the old age home throughout his life as per the wish of his late mother.
Shaktidhaama’s Convener G.S. Jayadev in his message stated that Puneeth was the backbone of the NGO. “Shaktidhaama is the dream of Dr. Rajkumar, which provides shelter to orphaned girl children. Puneeth had completely involved himself in supporting the activities of the rehabilitation center.”
He also informed that Puneeth Rajkumar donated the entire Rs.18 lakh which he earned through the ‘Kannadada Kotyadhipati’ to Shaktidhaama. He also used to support by providing books and other necessities to the inmates every year. The Shaktidhaama is spread across three acres of land. Puneeth had plans to start an educational institution at an estimated cost of Rs. 8 crores.
Puneeth had also visited Shaktidhaama before the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic and had spent time with the children. “Puneeth Rajkumar had developed an interest towards the education of late. He used to like to have food with the children here. Actor Shivarajkumar, who is also the brother of Puneeth also had joined hands in this cause,” he added.
