I was working as a technician after passing high school. Gradually I developed bad habits like chewing tobacco and drinking alcohol. I developed an introvert nature. I did the Youth Leadership Training Program and acquired leadership qualities. I started opening up, talking normally and confidently. I started doing seva and traveled to places like Rajasthan, Gujarat and Nepal conducting several Breath-Water-Sound Workshop and 5H activities.

I was working as a driver after passing the tenth grade. Gradually I started consuming liquor, lacked confidence and became unemployed. Disheartened and helpless, he underwent the Art of Living Part I course and the Youth Leadership Program. I started regaining my confidence and thought of starting a business, which would provide employment for the unemployed people. With this objective, I started a “chikki” (confectionary) making industry with an investment of Rs.10, 000. Within a year, the firm grew and now employs twenty factory workers. The business now generates a profit of Rs. 20, 000 every month.
