“When my son, Srinijoy, turned 10, I wanted to celebrate the milestone in a special way. So at the start of the year, I decided that I would run marathons across Asia and raise money to support underprivileged children who might not have all the benefits that I was giving my own child. My logic was simple:

Working for child rights is like running a Marathon. It is long and demanding. There are no short cuts. But there are milestones that are passed one step at a time. With sweat and a smile. You only have to take the first step, however big or small, and in whatever way you can.

I decided that amount of money I donated would be proportional to the distance I ran. And I sure ran a lot that year. I participated in a whopping 27 races, in spite of being laid up with an injury for 4 months. I donated the proceeds of the races to CRY to ensure a better life for underprivileged children.”
