Celebrities don’t need any introduction and this honourable person being discussed here is also fully defined in himself, and here I am talking about Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur who is a recognized and a respectable public figure. Recently, Maharana Mewar Charitable Foundation (MMCF) of whose he is the Chairman and Managing Trustee has been honored with the 8th Women together Award as the Best Organisation.
A brief introduction about the MMCF would reveal that it is a Public Charitable Trust which was basically settled for the purpose of the sustenance of the duties and responsibilities in democratic India. This is the living heritage of the House Of Mewar, which encompasses a wide range of activities that include environmental protection through water resource management, extensive medical and health care aid, providing pension covers to ex-employees, promoting self-reliance amongst women and encourage financial support to educational and cultural endeavors. MMCF, an epitome of India’s rich Vedic tradition, through its works and service to humanity has now become an inspiration for the generations to come.
So, in the light of so many contributions by MMCF, it was awarded with the VIII Women Together Institution Award in a distinguished ceremony where the prestigious award was accepted by Maharana Arvind Singh Mewar and addressed the distinguished gathering with his golden words which are quoted as follows:
“Greetings from Udaipur !!!
It is a privilege to be present here in the middle of such a distinguished gathering and to receive the VIII Women Together Institution Award for 2012 presented to The Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation,Udaipur. We wish to thank the Office Bearers of the WT Award Committee, the Jury and all those who were instrumental in selecting the MMCF for this singular selection from a land so far away from the HQ. On this occasion we wish to express our deep gratitude to the people of Udaipur and Joint Custodians of MMCF with whom we share the pleasure and the commitment of making Udaipur an improved destination through our engagement in academics, eco-management, philanthropy, living heritage and several other areas of socio-economic relevance.

I would like to use this opportunity to request all of you esteemed guests to visit Udaipur and advise us how we can further improve our beloved city Udaipur.

The ceremony was organized at the United Nations General Assembly on 5th June where he dedicated this award not only to the workers and officials of the MMCF but also to the residents of Udaipur. Also, the WTA spokesperson said that Mewar Foundation has held on to the tradition of the Mewar Family towards it emphasis on human values and future preservation for which the credit goes to the multidimensional thinking of Maharana Arvind Singh Mewar.
WTA is a non-government organization which honors people and social organizations from various fields for the renowned and appreciable work done by them and MMCF is being honored by it is a matter of immense pleasure and proud for every Udaipurite. Our entire team extends heartily congratulations for this achievement.
