India has the widest inequalities. According to Oxfam more than three-fourth wealth is held by a tenth Indians. Not only that, every year over 60 million Indians are pushed into poverty due to health care costs. India stands at 62 out of 72 emerging economies wrt inclusive development according to World Economic Forum, while we are ranked lowest in South Asia, even below Pakistan and Bangladesh on hunger. We have two states: Progressive India and Deprived India. It is only when significant numbers from the progressive or affluent Indians give up on their wealth, the deprived Indians would reap the real benefits and impact.


"Charity begins at home." We believe in this principle and hence decided to give half of our wealth in philanthropic activities during our lifetime and/or in our will. We will personally devote our time and energy in this journey. We appeal to the 1% affluent Indians and join this movement #LivingMyPromise.
