Three cheers for the fourth record!
Talk about beating your own record! Mahavirprasad Saraf, the founder and trustee of the trust, has been doing the deed since 1995 and is responsible for the 20,089 (and an additional 25 after the record was marked) benches across the length and breadth of the city, beating his own previous records. Starting with benches installed at the morgue at Cooper Hospital two decades ago, what began as an effort to provide relief to family and friends of the deceased has now become his mission to offer respite to all Mumbaikars. With 50 per cent of these benches being located in the suburbs where Saraf resides, he focuses on being able to extend his philanthropy throughout.
