How did you get interested in global issues?
I come from India a developing nation, that has various challenges. Growing up, I have been exposed to children working and begging at traffic lights, witnessed child labour in small shops, natural hazards that inclined towards making lives’ of the poor more miserable. All this was an in-direct result of poverty. Poverty is a universal matter of contention, it is linked with negative conditions such as substandard housing, homelessness, inadequate nutrition and food insecurity, inadequate child care, lack of access to health care, unsafe neighborhoods, and under resourced schools which adversely impact our nation’s children. The effects of global poverty are serious and thus requires our attention. As an individual I can relate with all these issues and thus want to make my voice count. Its one of the testaments as to why I am interested in working towards raising awareness about global issues.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Fighting poverty in all its dimensions lies at the core of the World’s greatest issues. We work closely with the officials to develop a microcosm where we can end the extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity. Far and away the biggest impact is likely to be felt in India, in particular case as it has a large number of vulnerable people. We may never know the full answer, but we do know that our strongest power is to work against this for the economic growth and recovery.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am trained as a Yoga professional, who believes in kindness and practicing humility. Life has simple philosophy, “The more you give, the more you get”. Something that we as individuals must practice.
