One Minute HERO: Generosity On A Platter

Bhaskar Kulkarni is the manager and one of the volunteer at Seva Cafe—a selfless cafe run by volunteers where guests donate to pay for the next customer’s meal. The bill at this cafe always reads Rs.0 with only this footnote: Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you. To keep the chain of gifts alive, we invite you to pay it forward for those dine after you.

Driven by volunteers and operated by modest staff, the meals are cooked and served with love, and offered to the guest as a genuine gift. To complete the full circle of giving and sustain this experiment, guests make contributions in the spirit of gift-it-forward to those who will come after them. In keeping this chain going, the generosity of both guests and volunteers helps to create a future that moves from transaction to trust, from self-oriented isolation to shared commitment, and from fear of scarcity to celebration of abundance.
