Jaagruti : ‘An inspired awakening’
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
- Margaret Mead [US anthropologist & popularizer of anthropology (1901 - 1978)]
‘Jaagruti’ is a self/family-funded organisation registered as a charitable trust under the Indian Trusts Act – on 14th December 2009.
We are based out of Delhi, India but we don’t want to be restricted by our demographics and thus, the scope of guidance that we can offer to anyone around the world on any issue pertaining to animals, environment or any social causes is infinite, thanks to the power of living in a wired and connected world.
About the name ‘Jaagruti’:
‘Jaagruti’ is a word in Hindi (India’s national language) which has its origins in Sanskrit text.
Jaagruti means ‘to awaken’ or ‘awareness’ .
And if you read the intent and philosophy behind setting up Jaagruti in the lines below, you would understand that no other name could have done justice work we do and aim to do.
About Jaagruti’s Logo:
Our logo epitomises the intent behind this initiative.
The ‘pugmark’ and the ‘leaf‘ in the logo is symbolic of Jaagruti’s objective to spread awareness on environmental and animal issues to people across all sections of the society, the informed as well as un-informed, the converted as well as the layman.
“The hardest struggle of all is to be something different from what the average man is.”- Charles M Schwab
We understand that the majority of people in this world mock at those who sincerely work for such causes and often the people who are keen on doing something feel disillusioned and helpless, we promise to mentor and guide you with all we possibly can so that you never feel alone in your fight to make this world a better and kinder place.
The ‘torch/baton of flame’ in our logo is symbolic of our intent to be the catalysts that can inspire and empower individuals to take informed action to solve problems that they face/are facing/wish to rectify on their own. For we believe that a positive and enthusiastic attitude to tackle any situation head-on causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is this attitude that acts as a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.
We believe in making an effort- success or failure is not the parameter by which we judge anybody or any action of ours or theirs. As is said, there are no failures, just experinces that make up our life.
William Arthur Ward once said, that “The greatest failure is the failure to try”
Take a little step forward. Be the change!
Jaagruti is the beginning of a dream that aims to be a movement that would inspire people to ‘be the change that they wish to see in the world‘ and follow their heart and take best action at an individual level for the benefit of all beings in the society, and also the flora and fauna which co-inhabit this planet of ours.
Often just giving something our best is often the best we can do to lead a contended life.
Though at times, when we fight to remove and rectify the ills in the society, our best may still not be good enough but still perseverance pays and it is the action and approach we take that counts the most than the results that come out of it. We all learn through trials and errors and it is only when every individual feels empowered to act on one’s own would this world would become a better and a kinder place to live in.
‘Life is too short to wake up with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t.
Believe that everything happens for a reason.
If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it!’
- Harvey Mackay
