Dr. Lakhankar launched his autobiographical book in Marathi and Hindi languages on December 26th, 2022, written by Ms. Shubhangi Maske in Marathi and Ms. Vaishali Charthal in Hindi.” The launch was a significant event for Dr. Lakhankar, as it marked the culmination of years of hard work and dedication to writing and sharing his story with the world. The launch was attended by family, friends, colleagues, and well-wishers who celebrated Dr. Lakhankar’s achievements and the values he represents. The book launch was a proud moment for Dr. Lakhankar and his family, who were able to share his journey with the world and inspire others to pursue their dreams, no matter how challenging their circumstances may be.
Dr. Lakhankar’s journey was far from easy. He was born into a poor family and looked ordinary and stuttered as a child. However, he did not let his circumstances define him. He obtained an MTech from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology Nagpur, a diploma from Polytechnic, and a BE from Sri Guru Gobind Singhji College of Engineering and Technology in Nanded. He went on to earn his doctorate from City University of New York and completed his post-doctorate at Colorado State University in the USA.
In these books, Dr. Lakhankar shares his struggles and how he fought to create his world from scratch. He acknowledges that many people unknowingly supported him on this journey, to whom he is truly indebted. He expresses his heartfelt gratitude to those who criticized and denigrated him as well. He believes that it’s important for the next generation to know their roots, including those who passed away across the seas. He hopes that his journey, filled with both happiness and sadness, inspires many people to keep fighting and never give up, as this is the only way to achieve success. This is the ultimate purpose of writing and publishing his book.
Dr. Lakhankar’s parents instilled in him the values of hard work, dedication, and the culture they cherished. His mother, born to a common farmer, grew up in a small village and received only basic education. She later married into the Lakhankar family of Mundikota and became Geeta Lakhankar, wife of Yashwantrao Lakhankar. Their family lived in a small house in the village, far from urbanization, and his parents worked hard all day to provide for them, finding satisfaction only in providing two meals a day.
Dr. Lakhankar is the eldest of five siblings. He grew up in a joint family with his parents, grandparents, and grandmother. His mother always encouraged them to set a positive example for others and to determine their own direction in life. She believed in them and took great pride in their accomplishments, but above all, she valued the culture she had imparted to them.
Dr. Lakhankar’s story serves as an inspiration to many who may feel that their circumstances define their future. His determination to succeed and his appreciation for the values his parents instilled in him are admirable. Dr. Lakhankar’s journey shows that with hard work, dedication, and a strong sense of culture, one can overcome even the most challenging circumstances and achieve great things.
