You will be happy to share the empowerment, enlightenment, joy
and excitement from our experiences and adventures.
Seema, 20, discarded the College (she was in one of the
so-called best college, viz., R.A.PODAR College) and Sejal,
14, discarded School ( she was in one of the so-called best
schools of Bombay, viz., St. Gregorious High School ) in
favour of specialiing in the subjects of her choice.
Both of them are mastering the art of dancing, aerobics,
Kathak and fitness instead of wasting their lives in reading
outdated books which have zero relevance to the present or
future needs of the world.
Shrawan and Surabhi discarded all commercial activities in
favour of fighting against negative forces around the World.
They are totally involved in Rural development, C0-operative
movement, Environment protection and many other issues which
are of utmost importance to the world at large.
Anuraag, 21, opted for mastering the art of Investments by
reading and understanding the best, quality material on the
subject instead of going for CA, MBA, CFA and
other such degrees.
All of us are enjoying every moment of our lives because we
are not slaves of the rotten non-system where hypocrisy,
corruption, power, fear, sycophancy rule.
We are continuously trying to get in touch with people
like Anna Hazare, Dr. V. Kurien, Mr, Rajendra
Singh and many other similar pillars of the Society.
We invite like-minded people around the world to take the
decision to be really independent, free, happy and useful to
the self and the world. And, we will be happy to
guide all such people in this mission of understanding and
fulfilling the true needs of the self as well as the world.
Also, we earnestly solicit your suggestions so
that we can minimise those mistakes which are avoidable and
expedite the establishment of the most sensible and just
world through Co-operative movement like Dr. V. Kurien and
Rural development like Anna Hazare.
We have been living at the above-mentioned address
since last 10 years. This location is on the Bombay Pune
Highway, just near to Govandi Rly. Stn. and Deonar Bus Depot.
We have a burning desire to use our own resources and make
people aware of the benefits of Co-operative movement and
Water-shed development in a nearby village or community.
We believe that you can guide us in selecting a location which
is not very far from our residence so that we can truly
involve ourselves in the noble mission of empowering the
innocent and ignorant beginning from a convenient location and
then expanding to farthest possible areas of the World.
Please give us some idea about how to select a suitable
We have a burning desire to use every inch of available space

No Noise please...
SAMPAT SHETTY DEONAR
[ SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 06, 2003 04:14:41 AM ]
Many of us talk about noise pollution and its implications,
but how many of us can boast of fighting the menace.
Thankfully, we have mid forties Shravan Gupta, who has been
fighting the cause since the past 15 years in his
man with a mission, Shravan has sent over 300 letters to
various State Central Ministries, including the Prime Minister
Office and the President, against increasing incidents of
noise pollution. The Guptas reside at Deonar, in the
neighbourhood of Indian Institute of Population Studies, which
is close to a temple as well as a mosque, "The temple had
10 bells which would disturb us. I had to fight for a long
time, before five bells were finally removed. The mosque also
had 10 speakers, which blared incessantly during the namaaz.
Now the speakers have been reduced to three. I respect the
religious sentiments, but I am against disturbing others'
peace in the name of religion," says Shravan
His crusade against noise pollution has made him take umpteen
visits to Mantralaya and various police officials. All he
encountered was pass-the-buck attitude. "Each one said
that it is not his department, but someone else's," he
Twice he met Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, who sent a
note to the under-secretary and was in turn to the deputy
under secretary! Visits in vain have not deterred Shravan, who
is now being supported by his daughters Seema (19) and Sejal
(13), and his nephew Anurag Gupta (20). His daughters help him
by maintaining the correspondence and regular follow-ups with
the officials and Anurag keeps track of the happenings around,
especially the Stock Exchange. "My aim is to protect the
small investors from the big bulls," says Anurag.
Incidentally, the family's livelihood depends on the
investments in the stocks. Seema has visited the offices of
the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board umpteen times, but she
is still awaiting some definite response to her pleas.
Shravan worked at a restaurant in Canada for three years when
he decided to return and "devote my time in fighting the
corrupt system that we have taken in our stride."
As it happens, Shravan too has received his share of threats
from all quarters but the Guptas continue to remain steadfast.
Shravan loves gardening. In fact, it's a passion for him. His
bungalow, Madhuvan, in Deonar CHS premises, has 700 varieties
of fruit and flower bearing plants. His terrace garden has
several fruit-bearing trees, all grown on pots. His neighbours
deposit vegetable waste and other wet garbage, which he
vermicomposts. He has also been credited with installing a
traffic signal near his house, which is very close to the
highway. The family single-handedly convinced municipal
officials to construct footpath on the Govandi station road,
and also helped in erecting streetlights.
