The founder of Mission Chetna touches on the founding principles of the Spreading Goodness initiative and its vision ahead. As he sums it all in his own words,
ग़र चाहो तो तुम भी कुछ कर जाओ,
या फिर औरों की तरह यूँ ही गुजर जाओ,
उठाओ हाथ तुम भी मदद में औरों की,
या फिर यूँ ही जिओ और यूँ ही मर जाओ !!
Ravi Sharma, Founder Mission Chetna

I’ve spent forty years in the IAS, outside IAS as an MLA, as a social worker worked in the slums of Delhi, been a minister but let me tell you, this is possibly the best function I’ve ever attended in my entire life. Ravi, what you and your (Chetna) organization is doing today is so amazing, so fantastic.
Chetna organization and their Mission Chetna is a great initiative to spread wellness by supporting real-life heroes of our society who have given their best efforts to make this world a better place
The philanthropic activities carried out by Mission Chetna are laudable indeed; and more significantly, the selfless service rendered to the needy by the Chetna Heroes is awe-inspiring and motivating to our society to participate in such a noble cause. I wish Mission Chetna will contribute its optimum in transforming the face of Indian society.
