On 4th of August 2008, the first anniversary of Navyashree Eye Hospital was celebrated at Penukonda, with Dr. Sri Sai Kaleshwar invited as the chief guest. In his speech, Sri Kaleshwar said the following:
“Every person should leave their selfishness, grudges and live their life for the development of the society and for the nation’s peace. The obstacles for the development of the society is only of selfishness and personal grudges.
When Mr. Konka Mallesh, the present Managing Director of Navyashree Eye Hospital, approached me and talked about a free eye hospital for the poor and asked for financial help, immediately I provided all the financial support to start the hospital. For this drought hit area we are doing all the charitable activities keeping the poor people’s needs in mind and working for their betterment.
Some anti-social elements are putting some personal grudges in their minds creating some obstacles for these development activities. I have devotees from all around the world requesting me many times to come and stay in their countries leaving this dangerous faction area; but I refused their request because I want to stay in this place and serve the society and work hard to make this place peaceful with the help of Sri Shirdi Sainatha.
If the press and police cooperate with us then we can make this place a peaceful place. Serving others should come from one’s heart."
Sri Kaleshwar appreciated all the people of Penukonda for their unity among each other irrespective of their individual religions; Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Jains are all living together like brothers.
Sri Kaleshwar felt happy by the work done by Mr. Konka Mallesh in providing eye sight for more than 2000 poor and aged people through the Navyashree Eye Hospital.
He continued his speech by stating:
“I am going to donate an additional $15,000 (7 lakhs rupees) for the development of Navyashree Eye Hospital and will construct another hospital building. With good intention, I want to construct a Super Speciality Hospital, but the Government has not responded by allocating the place for the eventual construction of the hospital. By the year 2010 we will construct this hospital which will house 500 beds, Medical College, Dental College, and Nursing College. We will overcome all these obstacles and difficulties.”

On June 21, 2008, Dr. Sri Sai Kaleshwar inaugurated the new College of Engineering building at Sri Krishnadevaraya University, which has been named Sai Kaleshwar Technology Bhavan. The total donation for this new college amounted to $500,000.
After the inauguration, Sri Kaleshwar spoke to the audience and inspired the students of India to work hard, be punctual, and serve their country by pursuing their educational goals within India. He further expressed that younger adults in many countries were diverting and losing their strength towards their educational lives by pursuing menial jobs in bars, restaurants and petrol pumps.
Because of this conviction Sri Kaleshwar felt inspired to create this engineering college so that poorer students, who have the strong desire to study and become engineers, could have that opportunity.
On this occasion Vice-Chancellor Mr. Aathoti Rama Rao, Higher Education Registrar Prof. Krishna Reddy, Engineering College Principal Mr. Sai Baba Reddy, Shirdi Sai Global Trust members and others participated.
