Be an excuse for the Darkness of your Soul.
In 2010, at the age of 22, I was at the gunpoint of an extremist in Central India.
It was not a mistake, but a well-informed choice. By then , I had made a decision of never blaming the Darkness, but to become the Light. Since then my work has been focused on 'Answering Social Evils through Social Ventures & Business', spreading Hope in 22 extremist outfits across the World, 27,000 tribal folk, 7,00,000+ Youth and a million smiles later, I believe that we all have the Light to shoo away the Darkness if we choose to become that Light. After a decade of self-funded work across communities of the World, I seek your help in my mission to spread Hope through Action.

STEP 1 :
STEP 2 :
TRANSFORM (SOCIAL VENTURES)
Shambhu, the boy who pointed a gun at me when I was 22 later became my first Mission Champion, spreading happiness to his cluster of 700 tribals, becoming a Social Entrepreneur, and recently, a father to a wonderful daughter, Sia.
Join my cause. Spread Hope. Become the Light.
Let not the darkness of the World, be an excuse for the darkness of the Soul!
