"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny?”-Mahatma Gandhi, 1948.
"President Bill Clinton once suggested that if every non-resident Indian adopts an Indian Village, it can transform the entire country. It is possible and it can be done. Our Foundation and the many individuals and/or organizations are paving the way. We earnestly hope that you would consider joining in this effort and help in reducing poverty and suffering from India."-Dr. Sehgal Suri, Chairman of Sehgal Family Foundation
"Let new India arise-let her arise out of the peasants' cottage, grasping the plough; out of the huts of fisherman,the cobbler, and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop,from the oven of the fritter-seller." - Swami Vivekananda
