“This year we decided to honour widows who have toiled hard to raise their children making them doctors, engineers and other professionals. Till now we have received names of more than 21 such women from Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai,” Shirsat said.
Among those who will be taken for the helicopter ride include Satyavatibai, Vatsalabai, Shardabai and Panchfulabai -from Mumbai and surrounding areas.
