Arvind Singhji said that post independence, the circumstances were unfavourable for the kingdom of Mewar. Conditions were unfavourable for the erstwhile rulers, when it came to discharging the responsibilities to the people of Mewar and this was adversly affecting the 1400 year old value system of the family of Mewar. It was during these adverse conditions, that Maharana Bhagwat Singh Mewar established the Maharana Mewar Charitable Foundation in 1969. The MMCF is dedicated to honoring the tradition of service to humanity. This foundation ensured that the duty of the Maharanas of Mewar was in place.
This 51 year old foundation honours national and international dignitaries in various domains, so that the younger generation can take inspiration from their achievements. The foundation has a reputation of motivating the building of character of the youth, in order to sustain a promising future for the nation.
