The first memory of meeting Kailash Satyarthi – 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner was with my first interview for the job as a Creative Director in Global March against Child Labour (GM). After Alam, the in-charge of GM finished with the preliminary interview, I was asked to visit Bhaishaeb Kailash Satyarthi office first time in 1997. I worked with GM for more than 7 years full time and even was associated with them after that till the time I left Delhi.

I have given many interviews before but never before a chairperson of organisations like Bachpan Bachao Andolan and GM has greeted me with a big wide infectious smile – that was my first impression of BhaiShaeb Kailash Satyarthi. He did not ask me anything technical, but asked me what all can I do to help the website of GM.

Impressed by my vision of what I wanted this website to become, I was hired into the GM team. Work was usual but what was unusual was the people.

Foreigners, Indian staff, college volunteers and street kids used to walk around the place, laughter, chatting so basically it was very noisy place to work.

Lesson #1 : Clients – Kids with feelings, fear, insecurity and expectations from you – respect that

In my previous office, I had huge multinationals clients, big offices and costly suits – which you see rarely. Here my clients were abused, slave kids – bonded labours. And I used to see them everyday.

  • One 6 year old girl who was raped by her uncle and was working in a house as servant.
  • A 10 year old boy who had never seen tube-light / fan cause he was chained in a dark room as a bonded child labour since he started walking.
  • A 14 year old servant girl rescued who’s head had a 7 inch puss-filled maggot-crawling wound and cigarette burn all over her body instead of clothes.

First time in my life, my work was directly in front of me. Walking, talking, crying, laughing. I saw the impact I was making through my work – saving a child, educating a child, bringing a smile in those tired, lost, scared faces.

It paved the way to the thought that  I would dedicate my life to helping people as a teacher in Krav Maga as then as a social entrepreneur conducting Power to Women Psychological Empowerment Workshops in Corporate & Stop Crime on Women Workshops in Colleges / Schools.

Having taken a gap in self defense training, I was quite apprehensive about how the BadAzz Krav Maga Goa Boot Camp was going to turn out.

Day 1 started with a hike to the beach… Most of us were in a ‘vacation’ mood (being in Goa and all). And then it all started with a bang! From one…
