About us

To celebrate Dharampalji’s birth centenary, a small but select group of his former close associates and admirers has come together with the aim – not only of underscoring the relevance of his immense contribution for contemporary times, but also of taking forward his manifold initiatives, together with India’s younger generation and a wide spectrum of Indian society. May our endeavour inspire many others – in the subcontinent, as well as the global arena!
