.................................................................................................
I am Praveen Teotia, an ex-Marine Commando with Indian Navy who took four bullets to the chest as a part of the 'Operation Black Tornado' at the Taj Hotel in 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack. My punctured lungs took years to recover as I did yoga in the laps of forests of Karanja, Mumbai. From barely able to walk, I’ve started running marathons and Ironman. This journey made me realise importance of clean air and oxygen for healthy lungs. And for that we need healthy forests, the lungs of humanity. The COVID pandemic brought this realisation to many of us. While we all understand the value of oxygen now, most are still conveniently ignoring it, I cannot. I have decided to run for our Forests from India Gate to Gateway of India in 15 days and wake up the world to its importance with every stride!

I require your support now to fund this awareness run from 10th Novemebr 2021 to 26th November 2021 so our message for the forest can reach the world. The run itself will cost up to Rs 4 lakh which includes travel, accommodation, support team's cost and the event cost for the closing ceremony in Mumbai on the last date. The rest of the 6 lakh will go towards planting our first crowdsourced forest in Jaipur in a public space in February 2022. Follow our journey on our Facebook page!

I have already lost half of my lungs in the service of the nation. I know how difficult life can be in such a state. Humanity is consciously destroying its own lungs as we lose our forests. Together we can bring our forests back. Together we can claim our right to breathe free. Jai Van! Jai Jawan! Jai Hind!
