Karate Kid

There are lot of wonderful things happening around the world done by wonderful people. I also am honored to meet one such character. Gaurav Sharma is young man in his late teens. He stays in one of the slums of Mumbai but he’s quite wealthy by heart. He’s a young change-maker who is determined to change his present and future through hard work and passion.

He’s a trained karate kid and do you know where did he learn it? He learns it on a foot-over-bridge that is not used in is locality. All though, most of such bridges are unused in Mumbai, his mentor has chosen this place to mentor less fortunate and low-income children of the locality. He goes to college and after that he shared his time in a community-learning center built near his place. He was also form such a community-learning space and has pledged his time for the younger children so that they can get value education and skills.

He’s also learning photography and film-making through the internet and with support of few good friends. He’s always inquisitive and ready to be the change. He wishes to join Indian Army when he grows up. He’s also preparing for it and if he doesn’t he wants to be a genuine journalist.

Such young men bring pride and glory to our nation. They have proved that nothing is impossible—even at a young age.
