My name is Ajith Kumar. I completed my Post Graduation in Business Management at Chinthaman Rao College of Commerce, Maharahstra, presently known as Institute for Management and research (IIMR). I started my career as a Client Service Executive in an advertising agency in Pune and slowly moved into other areas of retail marketing, exports, and real estate. Most of my working years were spent in Bangalore, which gave me good exposure to the corporate culture and the urban way of life. But something was always missing in my life, I couldn’t pinpoint what. Then I realized that in this corporate environment, I was missing out on how the majority of Indian’s lived. I realized that we needed a second revolution to transform the lives of the underprivileged to bring them on par with main stream society. Revolution to me was always about transforming the lives of the poor and empowering them to stand on their own; rather than spoon feeding and bringing about a culture of dependence and protection. I have always shouted to myself the injustice meted out to the poor; but could not find a trigger for a non-political movement, which will help the poor and the distressed. The Revolution I saw during my teens included unnecessary strikes by politicians for the upliftment of the poor, or for some other trivial issues that never really left an impact on the lives of the underprivileged. Rather, it was merely used for political gains and for pushing personal agendas. It was then that I realized that my usefulness to society was limited and any chance of progression in this field was non-existent. I was merely flowing with the tide and not doing justice to my potential. My life was at cross roads, when destiny brought me before two people who had a clear vision and idea on how they can empower people to stand on their own and create positive social change. I did not want to let go of this wonderful opportunity to venture into a field which was near to my thoughts, and dear to my heart. So I decided to lend my full-fledged support to nurture and raise kanthari in India. Since 2009, it has been a pleasure to work at kanthari. I am now able to live my dream of being a social advocate whose wish is to fight injustices and work for social causes. Every day at kanthari is a learning experience to me, and I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing Project.
