I have just 2 days left and 15th March is the last day I tried to arrange funds offline but it is tough for me. Please support me so that I am able with my learning at StatingBloc Boston Institute to support thousands with my knowledge and interventions.

I have taken up the challenge to convert ideas into action ..into reality and I am proud to announce " for healthy tomorrow ".

But this is just one step ... more miles to travel.

I quit my job (IT) in year 2010 and enrolled for an unconventional course in India "Masters in Sustainable Development Practice", part of the global MDP program (

at The Energy and Resources Institute University , New Delhi and it has groomed me to think out of the box . I believe technology is to ease life but there are millions suffering ...millions without access to electricity and clean cooking alternatives..millions without education...You need to understand social challenges to implement technology. I choose to do my summer internships in extremely remote and backwards villages of Bihar (most poverty ridden state in India).

And I realize I still nee to sharpen my knowledge .. learn from my friend s who have already enrolled at the Boston Social Innovation Institute...I must be there becaus ei have stood by my words. i must be there because I need mentorship to realize eMargDarshek a social venture and the most appreciated idea at 6th eGov World Summit. ...

The biggest asset you can give to someone is my me so that I am ready to stand for the challenges of the society as an able human being and help thousands and millions attain their healthy goals through my interventions. Support me so that I have the right knowledge, mentorship and network to stand stand in true shape and realize the social and sustainable interventions .... 

 Unfortunately I got so busy with my major exams , NirmalKalpana ... biogas plant and my internship (ongoing) ..I missed the deadline ...but you can still help me realize my enrollment at the Social Innovation Institute ....I need to pay $1000 tution fee...

I am sure you would like to fund me for my education and I promise you I will come upto your expectations...and I will keep you informed for what i do with the knowledge gathered....
