Yaad to amar hai.... She was the college queen ; a rare combo of beauty with brains plus a great human being ; he was a thorough gentleman, handsome and from an illustrious family. They were destined to become friends and like a fairy tale that culminated in a marriage. By all means made for each other couple. Two cute boys borne to this lovely couple;a perfect family . Amen. But the same destiny laughed weirdly; the lady suffered from leukaemia. There were lots of problems like misdiagnosis and over treatment etc.In spite of both( and many family members) being in the medical field they had to pass through many hurdles. And alas in Sept 2012 she succumbed to her illness ; leaving all in a state of sheer hollowness and sorrow. But see how a true gentlemen thinks;even in their trouble their families thought of the common man. How a common man will face all these hurdles if struck with cancer. So her family started a Madat trust to help such people. Cope with Cancer is the main activity of Madat Trust, which was started following demise of one of the trustees, Dr Mandakini Parikh Parihar, who lost her battle to leukemia in September 2012. While getting treated, Dr Mandakini and her family members realised that there was inadequate information about resources and a need for counseling for cancer patients and care givers. In Dr.Anand Parihar's words; To alleviate this shortfall, Madat Trust initiated this Free service in July 2013 The activities of the trust are Ø Counseling o Online & Telephonic Counseling To Patients & Caregivers o Information About The Disease And Its Effects o Nationwide Information About The Resources Needed By Cancer Patients o Dietary Suggestions & Recipes By Cookery Expert Ø Financial Support for investigations, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, & ICU support Ø Downloadable discount forms for investigations & resources on our website Ø Helpdesk at General OPD Tata Hospital and ACTREC to assist patients Ø Hair Donation Camps & Cancer Awareness Programs Ø Free Wigs to Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy Ø Post op care counselling and specialized counselling for children at Tata The online and tele-counseling service is operated by a team of trained clinical counselors, who speak various Indian languages, attending to cancer patients and caregivers for their social & psychological problems. More than 15000 people per month access & benefit through the websitewww.copewithcancer.org & Internet & Tele Counseling service. The middle class bears the brunt of cancer treatment in a very big way with a whole lot of families pushed into financial drudgery due to treatment cost. We have arranged fordiscount forms on our website which can be downloaded, printed and presented at listed diagnostic centres to avail of discountedinvestigations like PET, CT scans, & MRI and mammography and discounted products like anti-cancer drugs & nutritional supplements. We provide financial aid to economically challenged patients for investigations and treatments like PET scan, CT and MRI, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery & ICU support. Since September 2014, on an average,100 patients per month are supported at Tata Hospital, Mumbai. We disburse about INR 2,50,000 in financial aid for treatment per month at Tata Hospital. More than 4 Lakh people from all over the country have benefitted from our internet & tele-counseling service. More than 1700 women, from all parts of India, have donated hair for wig making. The Trust donates about 40 wigs per month to women patients undergoing chemotherapy. ALL our services are Free of cost to the users. Madat Trust aims to identify and fill up gaps in the management of cancer diagnosis and treatment bring about better outcomes specifically for economically challenged patients. So this is real friendship; we are well versed with the story of Satyavan And Savitri ;from Puranas. Here Satyavan (Anand)has immortalised his loving wife via this trust.All of us know how he was besides Mandakini throughout her illness. On this friendship day this is a real example of friendship Jindagi ki sath bhi Aur jindagi ke baad bhi And I am lucky to have such friends and to know such noble families . Lets wish all the best for Madat trust and may help them to accomplish their mission. People like Mandakini live forever via such awesome deeds and win over merciless death and keep enriching and inspiring our lives.... जाने वाले कभी नहीं आते जाने वाले की याद आती है मौत मिटा दे चाहे हस्ती याद तो अमर है.....@डाॅ.विजय आठल्ये.

Mandakini will always be remembered forever for her commitment, dedication, freshness & reaching out to others.

To Dr. Mandakini Parihar we owe all the happiness and immense joy that we as parents continue to receive in our lives! Dr. Mandakini Parihar was the enabler (or should I say God's own hand) for us to beget three bundles of joy in our lives ten years back. My three sons (triplets) came into our lives as a result of the consultation and treatment provided by Dr. Mandakini Parihar. We found out about this tragic and most untimely demise a few weeks back when we recommended her name to someone who similarly needed help in conceiving and were informed by this lady that the Doctor whom we spoke about is no more!! It came as a complete shocker and we were left aghast....we offer our heartfelt prayers to the Almighty to give peace to her soul and continue giving strength to her family to bear with this irreparable loss. Venu and Raj.

I met Dr Mandakini for a brief while in 2007. She made such an impact on my husband and me. We wrote a few times to share the news of the birth of our son and she was always so kind, loving and encouraging. I remember once she was explaining my treatment plan to my mother, who didn't register a word of what she said - she just kept admiring my beautiful doctor! You are missed very much...

Never once did we realise what Madam was going through. Her cheerful disposition and untiring strife has always enthused us with boundless energy. Praying to God to give strength to the Family to endure this loss. Madam will always remain in our hearts and continue to inspire us to give our best to the society. Vibhu

A woman of an uncommon charishma, an ever smiling idol of content and happiness, travelled all along through with a distinguishing mark of intellect and brilliance, fought with many challenges of the women's health and her own health,now has set herself, her soul, to rest in peace and happiness.
Posted by Nagireddy Siddhartha on 14th November 2012
She greets everyone with a smile of deep concern and care,to all the one who admired her, and the same way did she greet her death.The death did make no gloom to her life, and added her into its hidden and unseen world, to be enlightened and prospered.
Posted by Nagireddy Siddhartha on 14th November 2012
With a kind and softer smile to prevail in her soul,and a mind to cure the suffering, would heal the grieving souls that died of many grieves and miseries. She is a glorified mother of kindness, who bestowed to many women, an extreme joy of motherhood and prosperity.
Posted by Nagireddy Siddhartha on 14th November 2012
But the course of time to be so unkind and unfortunate, to all her loved and beloved, took her far away to leave them behind in a world of grief.
Posted by Nagireddy Siddhartha on 14th November 2012
Her loss cannot be replaced

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Mandakini Ma’am. Not only did she have a dynamic personality, she was a generous and warm-hearted teacher and friend. We are very fortunate to have known her and will always treasure her memory.

We will cherish her visit to LA in Oct. 2009. We will remember the superhuman fight she gave and a gift of life (our son Nilay) that will be remembered as long as we live.What a gentle giant she was. Just does not seem fair.She shined on this earth for a short time but the brightness she spread in all of us will stay forever.
