We are also delighted to share with you, the joy and happiness of our children, from the partner NGOs of ‘Shaping Lives’, our foundation, on board our first ‘flight of fantasy’, from Jaipur to Delhi recently. This experience of giving is truly one of the most satisfying experiences for us and we do hope many of you will join hands with us to share your time and resources for further enriching these children.

Do keep writing in, we love to hear from you.
