Call for Action to support Shri Harish Bhat

This communication is regarding supporting Harish Bhat’s family due to his untimely demise.

Shri Harish Bhat (47) had arrived for INSEF Regional Science Fair (Moodubidire). While overseeing the fair arrangements, he collapsed due to massive brain haemorrhage.

As we all know Harish Bhat used to spend lot of time with the school children – inspiring them at all times. One thing is that no one knew much about was his financial status & obligation.

The reality is, he has taken a loan of 15Lakhs for a recently purchased apartment in Bangalore. And it needs to be repaid.

His wife who has done MSc/MPhil (Computers) is working as a temporary employee in a private institution. He has a lovely 7-year old daughter Hamsa.

Due to the untimely demise of Shri Harish Bhat – it has created a financial void. This to a person who did not care about managing his personal finances.

The loan he has taken unfortunately did not have the insurance covered, hence, the liability to repay is on the spouse. He also did not have any life insurance policy.

Mission Rs. 20 Lakh

We have embarked on a mission to collect Rs. 20 Lakh totally from all the well-wishers. The least we can do to his family is try to fill up the financial void by donating generously directly to his loan account. Here are the bank NEFT/RTGS/IMPS details:
