Narayan Rangarajan

 

One meets many inspiring friends in their life.  A few change the way you feel, think, believe and there is one and only one along the journey that can make you act. Little was I aware about children with special needs until I met Anita Bhaskaran . Her first words were “they are ideal humans, we all want to be”. It took me a long time to absorb, understand and act. Our friendship and conviction took 10 years before it was realized into Aarambh. Thanks Anitas’ (Anita Bhaskaran and Anita Bhagwat) and the entire team. I am Narayan Rangarajan, I believe in equal opportunity and Aarambh is our first step in enabling this.

OUR MISSION
