Just the other day I was flipping the magazines that I saw Week where they have profile many youngsters who have chosen to do something different either for their country  or the passion to go back to roots whatever it is , it is admirable...I would like to spread it....

As written in WEEK 30th Jan.....
  1. Chhavi Rajawat...She is on the front page.She is an IIM grad and she quit her job and now is Sarpanch of Soda village,looking after its development.
  2. Joshua Hishey ..He is 30 yrs old and is founder of studio in Dehradun and he is involved in preserving locla handicrafts, He and Richa are involved in organising comp. classes,graphic design workshops etc, they want to make community strong and independent.
  3. Divya Baja 27...She is founder of Miracle foundation in Banglore which helps rehabilitate women drug addicts.
  4. Masarrat Daud Jamadar,27.She is an NRI, she started the 8 day academy to give education to the under privileged.
  5. Usman Ahmed,34..he is empowering farmers in Kashmir to grow potatoes with new techniques to increase the yield..this type if initiative I like best, as he is using the local crop only to help.
  6. Jithin C nedunath,24, kochi..he is the co founder of MAD.make a difference..that educates underprivileged children.
  7. Abhishek Sinha , 34and Abhinav Sinha30 started EKO a low cost financial and mobile service for poor..its thru mobile and anytime service.
  8. Pallavi Renke,32..Solapur, she is devoting herself to the upliftment of denotified tribes.
There are many more like them, I have stated a few, their attitude to life is worth admiring, Not everyone can have the same passion and courage , but still if we could put in our two cents and support them, it would be enough .Life is not all about reaching goals and accumulating luxuries and wealth.

Service the interest of others and life will service your very interests. Fundamentally, the measure what you will be given in life depends on what you give.

I read abt Chavi Rajawat too....very inspiring. Actually all their life-stories are.
From what I see, each of us do want to contribute to society but do not know how.
The difference btn these people & the rest is that they search & find a way whereas the rest wait for a ready-made path to present itself before them;-).

Bikramjit said...

WE need such Indians to make the rest wake up and do there bit ..
If all do something imagine where we will be ..

There is still hope because of such ppl who dedicate their life for others

Madhu said...

Its exhilarating to read all these Renu. I must say, parents are also to be appreciated. Before, every parent want their son/daughter to be "something" like doctor etc. Now, they are encouraging kids to peruse their heart and do what pleases them. A remarkable change.

sumukh bansal said...

we need to tell children about these people so that they can decide what they want to do...
rather then dreaming for a opulent life they will be able to dream a life full of voluntary serving...

Renu said...

Bikram: I believe that spreading good things also brings change:)..change is there but the pace is slow.

Bhagyashree; Yes if we have corrupt politicians then such people also exist.

Madhu: yes , parents have a big role to play, fist in inculcating right values, and then supporting them in their brave choice.

Sumumkh bansal: Thats what i am trying to do:)

Renu said...

Pranvam Ravikumar:People like them endorse my bleief that this world runs because of good people even if they are few.

Babli said...

Very nice, knowledgeable and informative post. Marvellous post. Hope we all get inspired.

Its a great post..I googled each of these Young thoughtleaders and found them highly inspiring.

A slight correction though..Chavvi is from IMMM(Pune) and not an IIM, not that it brings down her achievement by even an iota :)

Renu said...

Pratibha: Thank you for the correction!..These people will be inspiration to many.
