Gita Press, Gorakhpur, India is a renowned publication house that provides extremely subsidized copies of religious literature to mankind at large. The original gist of Bhagavad Gita… the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna along with English transliteration is available for mere $.60 (Rs. 30/=). With passage of time original teachings of Lord Krishna have not diluted. Gita press, Gorakhpur, India has helped India preserve its vital religious documents intact.
In spite of the fact that Gita press, Gorakhpur, India is doing a wonderful job by providing subsidized copies of Bhagavad Gita and other religious scriptures… it has bitterly failed in the field of after sales service. I receive many complaints from people world over and in India that even though I recommend books of Gita press, Gorakhpur, India vociferously in many articles on my various websites… Gita press people were not doing their job rightly.
Some received books they had not ordered. Some still awaited delivery of books they ordered months ago. Most complained about receiving wrong version of the book. If the after sale service of Gita press, Gorakhpur, India continues remaining tardy and poor… then who can help in the matter. Most people looking after sales are Hindi speaking. Having no knowledge of English… they tend to send wrong versions of books without double-checking the order.
Unless some senior person in the organization goes into depth of the problem… people would continue receiving wrong books from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India. Whenever I chance to go to Gita Bhawan, Muni Ki Reti, Rishikesh… I tell them about the predicament faced by many people but there is none to help in the matter as senior officials are located at Gorakhpur, India.
Once when Swami Ramsukhdasji was visiting Gita Bhawan, Muni Ki Reti, Rishikesh… I wanted to meet him in person. But in the midst of the vast crowd… even though I tried my best… I could not meet him. He was all the time surrounded by office bearers and ardent followers. I finally realized my folly of wanting to meet a religious person even though I was totally spiritual from the beginning of life.
Whenever I get an opportunity in near future… I shall definitely convey to the senior management of Gita press, Gorakhpur, India about inconveniences experienced by various people in dealing with their sales division.
I personally love publications of Gita press, Gorakhpur, India. I have so many copies of their publications that I truly feel humbled by what Gita press, Gorakhpur, India is doing for mankind. If I ever desire any publication from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India… I personally go to their Delhi sales office located at Nai Sarak, Chandni Chowk, Delhi or Gita Bhawan, Muni Ki Reti, Rishikesh. Once when I sent a person to get some books… he got the wrong versions and I had to exchange them.
My advice to all in this case is… get books from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India through a friend if possible. As most people working in Gita press retail outlets are Hindi speaking… they land sending wrong versions of Gita press books to people world over.
