I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!
A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)
My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.
My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now
One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.

It was an amazing experience to collaborate with two mothers, Ankita and Sonal, who have come to previous circles, as we put our hearts together to design this entire circle completely from scratch including each activity, which was a very involved process :) The ripples of this true labour of love spirit were seen in how beautifully the circle unfolded and the depth of reflections shared and also to hear about how it was such a meaningful the experience for each family who participated ...

Apr 29, 2019, 2 smiles May 2019 - London Gatherings Last Sunday, 30 parents and children gathered to explore how we can be more empathetic towards each other at home, at school and everywhere we go. The highlight of the afternoon was developing our own empathy skits with a twist -- in order to truly experience walking in someone else's shoes, the kids acted as the parents and the parents acted as the kids! Stay tuned for more stories and photos from this gathering next time and even a few videos of the amazingly empathetic skit performances! :) We look forward to seeing you at Awakin Circles this month and wanted to share with you about an upcoming service opportunity for the entire community to get involved with, alongside Nimo's 17 children from India who are coming to London in June!
