About us
Objective
To provide, using the Internet, staple food to chronically hungry Indians so as to enable them to survive, learn and work.
The Inspiration
Born on December 15, 1975 and brought up in Mumbai, Lt. Nawang Kapadia was the younger son of Harish and Geeta Kapadia. Nawang did his schooling at St. Xavier's Boys' Academy to move on to Jai Hind College and graduate from the Mumbai University with a 'Bachelor of Commerce' degree. Nawang was always everyone's favorite wherever he went. A true follower of Mahatma Gandhi and believer in non-violence joined the Indian Army as an officer and was engaged in a sudden, fatal combat in Kashmir on November 11, 2000 just a few days after his first posting. He understood and did more in his few years than most of us will in our lifetime. A tribute to the young man by his elder brother Sonam Kapadia at www.nawang.com
A message from the Founder
After having spent many hours over many years in deep debate and discussions,
Nawang and I had our dreams. All through, one thing that bound us together was an urge to ''make a difference'. However, my stand and argument to him was that we should use our current time and energy to first 'get somewhere in life' and then start doing something substantial! Nawang was more focused than me and always two steps ahead of everyone. He said he isn't going to wait to start the good work (he thought it's a lame excuse not to start 'now'). Before we knew it, he joined the Indian Army as an officer and was posted in Kashmir. He was being praised by his company in the Army and to me, in his uniform, he looked like the one man who will save the world one day! Intelligent, strong, good looking, kind, witty, positive, enthusiastic, well-mannered and a born leader, there isn't anyone who impressed me as much. It's a tragedy for his family and friends and is a peoples' loss that he is not with us today. After years of pondering with and without him, I'm taking a tip from the great man, my best friend and guiding light.......... If you really want to start, start now. I can't see a better day than today, his 28th birthday to
launch the Bhookh.com project. Nawang and I look forward to your support.
