Today I had the privilege of celebrating the Festival of Colours with some members of our society who have been robbed of many colours from their lives.
Some members of our walkers Group, Let’s Walk Gurgaon visited an internationally recognised NGO, The Earth Saviours Foundation, in Bandhwari Village on Gurgaon Faridabad Road, run by a Karma Yogi Ravi Kalra.
Let’s Walk Gurgaon is an eclectic group of people who enjoy walking. Every Saturday the group goes for walks to unexplored green areas in and around Gurgaon for a morning walk. There’s no pleasure that equals an early morning walk.
Ravi Kalra is a social activist and environmentalist who has been running this shelter since 2008. He is a 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo and has travelled the world coaching various teams. After 5 attempts to give up his life of professional success, he finally gave it all up in 2008 when he set up The Earth Saviours Foundation without any monetary support of either a business house or Government.
Since then he has dedicated his entire life to improve the lives of abandoned senior citizens, victimised women, mentally disabled people and people suffering with incurable diseases giving them all a chance to lead their lives with dignity.
We went to celebrate Holi and share some fruits with the inmates of the shelter but we came back with loads of love and respect. It was a truly a humbling experience.
May GOD give more power to Ravi Kalra and people like him.
