Amitabh Bachchan on Bharat Calling’s
Co-founder & Dont Give Up Member
Sandeep Mehto as “Anokhi Misaal” on KBC 8
I meet Sandeep Mehto at the T.I.S.S Top 12 Social Innovation Awards in 2011-12 . The two day convention was
an amazing experience which helped us meet like minded people and grow in our respective social initiative .
Sandeep Mehto’s Bharat Calling was one of the most appreciated of the 12 social initiatives . You could see
the passion in his eyes and the honesty in his selfless efforts . The fact that he had dedicated his life to the cause
is simply inspiring . Being a student from TISS , He could have got a good job . But he decided to devote his life to a
a path less taken … A path of selfless dedication… A path to help others in need …
I salute Sandeep Mehto for his efforts …
I am inspired and we hope that we can replicate your success with our initiative at ” Don’t Give Up ” .
We wrote an article about his initiative on 25th Feb 2011 .
We are happy and both proud to see his efforts being appreciated by the Legend Amitabh Bachchan at KBC 8
