Leaving behind a successful career in the corporate world and consulting was a conscious decision taken by Shekhar. His inner curiosity and restlessness put him on the path of a seeker. A destined sabbatical at a business school provided the break and the space to travel far and wide and meet sages and monks. It triggered carving out of a work agenda, which could synthesize ancient wisdom and a spiritual way of life and living with modern times. Acknowledging that the modern approach to work and life had resulted in all-round material progress, the cost of such an upward movement had severe repercussions, both amongst individuals, organizations and the community, and the environment too. Anjaneya Foundation was conceived by Swati and Shekhar while they worked alongside villagers in a remote village in Kancheepuram district of Madras, in the southern Indian state of Tamilnadu.. The inner calling was to carry the ancient wisdom and spiritual insights of the past to wherever and whoever needed to reinforce the ‘spirit’, which was being sought - organizations, businesses, individuals, community and young minds in schools and colleges.
Anjaneya Foundation has in its decade-old journey conceived, built and delivered the following programs and interventions in a spirit of selfless service to the community, to which it is indebted for giving it an opportunity to serve.
