MUMBAI | Eleven Indian Seeds and their friends took part in a leadership session at the Bombay International School on September 18 led by Abhishek Thakore, the founder of The Blue Ribbon Movement.
The Blue Ribbon Movement is a social organization that creates and nurtures young social leaders across borders through various leadership programs.
Thakore challenged participants to seek a life created by their own struggle and efforts, rather than a life that society finds acceptable and that conforms to the boxes that are approved by society.
“I was surprised when one of the Seeds said that they would work to create their own life and not fit into the boxes which are readily available,” said Sagar Gangurde, Director of Indian Programs.
Using his own story of change, Thakore explained how privilege can provide an opportunity to take chances and make this world a better place.
