Our Guiding Spirit :
Swami Lokeswaranandaji Maharaj
Born on 19th April 1909, Swami Lokeswaranandaji Maharaj left his mortal frame on 31st December, 1998. A renowned monk of the Ramakrishna order, Swami Lokeswaranandaji was a ‘Man without Frontiers.’ He was an erudite scholar and a great visionary with the rare ability of transforming his visions into action and achievement.
A man of indomitable courage, he built up the multidimensional educational complex of Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission, and made it a centre for excellence in school education. He also created the Narendrapur Lokshiksha Parishad that continues to equip the rural youth with employable skills in thousands of villages all over the country. He also set up the Blind boys’ Academy in Naredrapur that has excelled as one of the leading institutions for the blind in the whole of Asia. During his tenure at Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Kolkata, Swami Lokeswaranandaji diversified the activities of the Institute and made it an International Cultural Centre recognized globally as an institution par excellence. He was the pioneer in establishing the Ramakrishna Vivekananda movement in Russia. He was invited to speak at Oxford, Cambridge, Humboldt and other universities throughout Europe, United States and Canada.
Lokeswarananda Eye Foundation is named after Swami Lokeswarananda Maharaj, the highly revered monk of the Ramakrishna Order. His life was a living example of the ideology. Swami Vivekananda preached- “Service to man is service to God”.

Nanritam Krishi Kendra
Welcome to the Nanritam
Almost two decades ago a group of philanthropists united under the name Nanritam [नानृतं] or ‘The Truth’ at Barandanga. Some of them were doctors, specialising in ophthalmology. And the poor healthcare facilities of this remote pocket became their immediate cause of concern. Hence Nanritam began its journey with weekend eye camps for the invisible population of Barandanga and its neighbouring villages desperately grappling with poverty. Back then the villagers had to travel all the way to Asansol, the nearest town, for minimal diagnosis and treatment which they could ill afford. The eye camps grew into a tiny 6-bedded hospital called Lokeswarananda Eye Foundation facilitating cataract surgeries. In 2012, the Government of West Bengal supported this hospital and helped it scale up into a 100 bedded super speciality referral eye hospital.
Our vision is to see the underprivileged in remote and neglected areas live healthy, purposeful and active life – a life they can command themselves, free of the shackles of poverty, ill-health and illiteracy.
