I'm joining Service Space because ... I am moved by love, moved by the love of so many visible and invisible forces working relentlessly to serve each other... and Service Space is a place that provides a pollination platform to these forces while facilitating heart to heart connections !
A good day to me is when ... whenever I am fully present with friends, family, strangers, beings and surrounding, when I practice Guna Darshnam (observe and absorb virtues) and that brings immense goodness :)
My hero in life is ..._/\_

One thing I'm grateful for is ... Life :) It's beautiful :)
