The story of “Ek Sparsh” has been featured in a book! “You Own Urself” is authored by Sharmin Ali.
YOU (“You Own Urself”) is about overcoming one’s inhibitions. It is about breaking free from physical, mental or emotional handicaps. A journey that every individual can associate with. Y.O.U talks about trespassing the status quo and taking control of your life.
I met the author last year at one of the stalls we had put up to market our eco-friendly products. We started talking about the need to follow our calling in life. She interviewed us for her book about 3 months back.
Here is an excerpt from the book.
“The desire to do something for their country led Adarsh and Udaya to take a huge ‘Leap of Faith’. On returning from the US, they took a meditation course at the Vipassana meditation centre at Nagarjuna Sagar run by SN Goenka. With 10 days of silence, came clarity on their next path in life which drew them to working with NGOs in Bangalore. Yet, there was something missing, the desire to do more. “Ek Sparsh” which Adarsh started as a blog in US was the name of their social enterprise. The goal of “Ek Sparsh” is to touch lives in a meaningful way.”
