This blog : Ek Sparsh means ‘a touch’ in Hindi. This blog is an attempt to highlight issues affecting India. News related to children, literacy, rural development, environment, health, and arts are gleaned from various sources and posted here with an in-depth perspective. News of such importance is often lost in the din of sensationalism and profits. It is also my attempt to include social initiatives in India and across the globe that help improve the lives of people. Ek Sparsh aims to provide its readers an accurate and reasoned perspective on issues of social importance.
Myself: I am Adarsh Rao,an engineer by profession and immensely interested in social issues. I strongly believe that
- We have to be aware of the issues affecting the country, and participate in the social dialogue taking place in one form or the other.
- We need to think of ourselves as part of the development process initiated by various individuals and non-profits who strive everyday to make a difference to our society.
- Each one of us can make a positive impact.
Each person has the power to make a significant contribution to society.
