At a time when it has become absolutely essential for us to use renewable sources of energy for all our needs, a Gujarat temple has been reportedly leading the way in this department.
Praveen Chandra, temple’s trustee: The electricity bill used to be very high. So motive behind this was to save money. The bill dropped from Rs 1.5-2 Lakh per month to Rs 10-12,000 per month now. With the money that was saved, we started a college and a school for Sanskrit.(6.12) https://t.co/Ahm5yuiFB7 pic.twitter.com/kGuU2ga88g— ANI (@ANI) December 6, 2019
