EP07 – SUSTAINABLE CONTRIBUTIONS with Dr Bansri Lakhani – The Vichaar Manthan Podcast

    How do we define a flourishing society?

    How can society help those who are most in need?

    Is a flourishing society one that helps those who are most in need?

    How do we reflect the Hindu value of Sewa (selfless service) in our actions?

    And how do we translate our personal success into giving back to society in the years to come?

    In this episode, we explore all these questions, what it means to contribute sustainably and how to translate ideas into actions that make our society a better place.
