Thanks a ton, all the "Dream-Runners"!
Today, I received the contributions you all made (SGD$ 5,000/- ~ Rs 167,000/-) for the "XLRI Social Entrepreneurship Trust".
In fact the last fortnight has been quite good for the Trust. I got a contribution of Rs 12,500/- from one of the 91 batch alumnus (with a promise that this will be repeated every 2 months:)...
and one of the old XL strategy faculty who was visiting Jampot, and went with me to the Parichay's Learning & Design Center, and was so thrilled with their work, that cut a USD$1,000/- for the Trust on the spot)
So thanks folks, for making my day...
Special thanks to Rajesh "Ciggy" Soundarajan and Ramesh for mobilising the energy of junta
Paraphrasing GWB for the monies to the Trust, I would say - "Bring 'em on!" :0)
