Surat, Gujarat [India]: Viral Desai, the Greenman of Gujarat and a well-known businessman from Surat, has started a movement called ‘Satyagraha against Pollution.’ Viral Desai has started this initiative on getting inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav: 75-week Celebrations of 75th Year of Independence. Viral Desai started the environmental movement for the next 75 weeks from the historic Vanz village in the presence of pedestrians on their way to Dandi march from the Sabarmati Ashram and dignitaries like  Gujarat Cabinet Minister Ishwarbhai Parmar, MP Prabhubhai Vasava, MLA Zankhnaben Patel, and Surat BJP President Sandip Desai.

As part of the Satyagraha movement against pollution, Greenman Viral Desai says, “75 years ago, India’s freedom fighters staged a Satyagraha to free themselves from British slavery, but now we have to launch a Satyagraha against Environment Pollution because the slavery of pollution is so rampant that we have in fact become slaves to many diseases as well as many problems. Since our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated the Amrut Mahotsav of Independence, we have also decided to make a small contribution to his sacred mission by organizing various tree plantation

programs through our Foundation.

Under the Satyagraha program against pollution, Viral Desai has decided to plant 275,000 trees in the next 75 weeks. And he has started this movement from Vanz village because Vanz village has a rich history of playing an important role in the success of two Satyagrahas in the history of India, namely  Bardoli and Dandi. Viral Desai launched the campaign by planting 75 trees in Vanz and earlier also he had planted 150 trees in Vanz on the occasion of the celebration of 150 years of birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

Interview With Durvesh Yadav – What They Don’t Teach Us, How This Book Can Help Youth To Build Their Meaningful Life

New Delhi [India]: Durvesh is a 22-year-old boy who has achieved so much in life while studying in a college. Meanwhile, other college students of his age waste their time and hang around here and there. They think that 4 years of college are Just for fun.

But Durvesh thinks differently. He worked hard and regarded those 4 years as an opportunity to build the foundation of his life.

In an interview with Durvesh Yadav, he said that 4 years of college are the foundation of a Youth’s Life and Youth has 2 options to spend these crucial 4 years, Either to invest in learning to build their future Or Just waste those 4 years and Regret later in life.

Here are some of the Insightful questions and his answers which Youth can learn and can know more about his upcoming book…

Q1:  So Mr. Durvesh, What Inspired you to write this book?

A: See, Since I Was in my second year of college I started studying about successful people and got to know so many secrets which successful people implement in their life and I noticed one common trait in successful people that they have a vision.

Then, I realized that most of us live our life without a purpose, vision, or goal. That’s why we are unsuccessful in our life.

This is the main difference between successful and unsuccessful people. As I could observe that my friends, my colleagues, and people around me were directionless.

I wanted to help them but at that time I had no result to show off to those people and tell them they can also become successful.

So Instead of telling them, I started implementing those learnings which I learned from successful people and while studying in college, I reached the point where I started earning a 6 figure amount per month.

I observed and found that those learning which I had been implementing are must for every student to build their life and that’s why I thought that writing a book is the best way to share my experience with students to help them succeed in their life.

…that’s Nice to hear Durvesh, Our Youth Now A Days Are Misguided, I Really Love that the people like you are changing this youth and the country.

Q2: So Durvesh, Tell Us What This Book Is All About?

A: As You Said, That Our Youth Now A Days Are Misguided, They Are Directionless, They don’t know what to do in their life. They don’t know how to deal with a negative mind?

Schools and colleges are just focusing on theoretical knowledge But Nobody Is Teaching Us About How To Dream, How To succeed, How to make our career in the 21st century.

So This is very important for every student to develop their mindset first and then build their meaningful life.

They don’t know what to do in life, they are just following the rat race. So it’s important for them to learn the secrets like what is the most important thing to succeed, Why they must dream and have a vision,

So In this Book, I Have Shared 4 Stages To Build a Meaningful life.

This book is all about what our school and colleges are not teaching us which is about having a good mindset, how to succeed in life, and how to grow their career in this 21st century.

Q3: So Durvesh My 3rd Question Is, What’s Your Goal from this book?

My Goal from this book is just to bring positivity, prosperity, and bring hope to the students and youth that They also could say “Hell Yes! It’s possible to achieve my dreams.”

This Book Helps Them To Transform their Mindset and Life.

…So Glad to hear about this book Mr. Durvesh, I Must say that yes this book is a must for every student to Read.

And these were 3 Short and Important Interview Questions out of many Which I shared with you, I hope you guys loved it.

Durvesh is really doing great at this young age and Now He is truly an inspiration to the youths.

He is learning new things and implementing them to continue to grow.

Social Activist Dr MK Muneer is the prominent face of Kozhikode and initiated massive changes in the infrastructure and cultural dimensions of the city and God’s own country.

Kerala, [India]: There are many notions of capital cities around the world. New Delhi being the national capital, Mumbai is the financial capital and Kolkata is the cultural capital of India. In the state of Kerala, Trivandrum is the state capital, Kochi being the financial capital and Thrissur being the cultural capital.

Dr MK Muneer, a doctor by profession and in social service by passion inspires the idea of ‘ethical capital’. He envisions his city of Kozhikode being the ethical capital of Kerala.

An award-winning author, he points out the importance of the vision of ‘ethical capital’ or the need for values in the public domain. Due to this, the simple and effective idea of “Good Kozhikode” caught the imagination of people across the state and also won laurels from national media.

His efforts got immense recognition from the present central government too, when he was awarded the ‘best minister for panchayat and social justice’ thrice. The deep work in implementing the projects to benefit the poor and uplift the downtrodden has been applauded by people across the political spectrum and from state and central governments.

Dr Muneer’s initiatives for women empowerment earned him an award from various national media and under his stewardship, India’s 1st ‘Policy of Transgenders’ was implemented in Kerala. The State Policy for Transgenders in Kerala’ created waves across India with activist groups raising a similar template on other states inspired by a Kerala Model Policy. Reaching out and ensuring jobs and transgender justice were some of his epoch-making endeavours.

Dr Muneer is one of the most sought out guests of honour for various faiths and community organisations due to his pluralistic credentials and is an ambassador of harmony between all communities. Representing Kerala’s Indian Union Muslim League, his speeches in Temples, churches and inter-community gatherings were deeply appreciated by various community leaders.

The ‘consensus builder’ approach of the leader in the development domain was also crucial in the mega infrastructure push of pledging billions of rupees to the city of Kozhikode.

Dr Muneer points out the importance of balancing growth and care for all sections of society. The schemes pioneered by him include the direct benefit scheme (DBT) of sending money to the widows, orphans, people without family, the elderly and farmers.

Other major humanitarian aspects of policy he undertook were focusing on ‘human infrastructure’, mental health, women empowerment, protection of child rights, and assistance to the mentally challenged. He made ‘psychosocial counselling’ for the adolescent and teenagers in schools very accessible and affordable.

Dr Munner has initiated projects like ‘Snehapoorvam, Snehasparsham, Samashwasam, Ashwasakiranam, renovation of the public library, up-gradation of Kozhikode beach to global standards, Melody for educational and cultural rejuvenation’.

Bringing his experience from the world of medicine, his resourcefulness was channelised by large scale organising of medical camps for the needy, evolution of public health centres into model health centres and raising the quality of Kottaparambathu Government hospital into global standards.

Acknowledging the geriatric issues in the state, the project of ‘SaphalameVardhakyam’ for the happiness of the elderly won him accolades from across the nation.  He has also initiated a project to make Kozhikode into a ‘fully wifi’ equipped city.

From IUML an organisation led by the Panakkad Thangal family who is well accepted across all communities of Kerala and are a strong resistance against sectarian tendencies. Dr Muneer also carries forward the legacy of his iconic father, late Sri CH Mohammed Koya, who was the Chief Minister of Kerala still cherished for his efforts in building interfaith harmony in the state and across India.

Dr Muneer is a cultural icon, a singer, an artist and an author who has won many awards. He won SK Pottekkatt literary award for his work ‘Sree Narayana Guru MoonnuVicharangal’ and C Achuta Menon Award for literature. He has won Indo British award for best minister too. This innovative vision of making ‘Kozhikode the ethical capital of Kerala’ has ignited tremendous interest from public policy experts in India.
