So many of you know him as Lucky, Lokendra, and some of us family members who call him Lovely. Indeed he was all of that, a son, a friend, a good man but most of all for me, he is truly a person with whom I shared many cherished moments, my brother.

In his spirit, I am starting this fundraiser to eventually start a foundation in his name that supports young entrepreneurs in the USA. My goal is to raise enough funds to establish an ongoing foundation for young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 32, who have an idea that not only supports them financially, but also does good for their community.

Our Story:
In 2011, when I learned that my brother went missing, I was devastated, His whole life flashed in front of my eyes. My heart felt as if it was shattered into a million pieces. A few days later, his body was found in a river. Till this day, my heart remains perplexed by the events that brought me to this reality.

I wanted to know more about my brother's last few days of life, as I did not get a chance to spend more time with him before he left. When I went through a few of his papers, I found that my brother was looking forward to starting his own business. He had dreams and aspirations to start his own business, to become an entrepreneur. I do not know if he had any support to do this. We often find ourselves as young adults, alone and without any guidance, and often do not know where to seek help.

I want to honor my brother's life, and through him the dreams and aspirations of my brothers and sisters around the world who are interested in entrepreneurship. I want to start this foundation, in hopes that together we can support some amazing young adults from the USA with some seed money, who are looking to do good in the world through entrepreneurship.

Please contribute to this fund in the name of our brothers and sisters around the world who can use our support through seed money for their business and ideas.

The funds from this fundraiser will be used to set up a foundation that will disburse money through various grants of different amounts to young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18-32, who show great promise and go through a selection process.
