More Than One Needs to Know :)
Most Recent Highlights (2014)
I returned from a remarkable 4 months in India, and day after I landed, I had the privilege of receiving 'Unsung Heroes of Compassion' Award from the Dalai Lama.
As "CharityFocus" Became "ServiceSpace" (2012-2013)
In January 2012, we changed our name from CharityFocus to ServiceSpace. Coincidentally, at the end of month, I delivered 'Designing for Generosity' and it went viral; then in May, the UPenn Commencement, which reached millions globally. And the next summer, Magical and Miserable.
Pilgrimage Days (2004-2005)
Six months after our inter-faith marriage, we decided to ante up. We sold all that we had and headed to Gandhi Ashram with a one-way ticket -- to embark on a walking pilgrimage. At the time, we didn't how it would impact us but it ended up changing the direction of our life.
The Early Days (2000-2002)
My first public talk at a local monastery -- Spirit of Service; first major press story Charity Begins at Home; first time on TV: Half Hour on CNN. All spontenous and unsolicited.
Good Ol' College Days :)
Started DailyGood, as a fun prank to send out inspiring quotes at 4AM while interning at Sun Microsystems :) In 1997, held first Awakin Circle, with my mom and Guri. In 1999, the infamous pizza gathering ... at what is now known as the Intergalactic headquarters. :) Four of us did the first project, and ServiceSpace emerged.
