Many years ago,a young 8th grader,gazed outside his school window,watching a peanut seller selling his peanuts and trying very hard to save his mentally challenged child from the ongoing traffic. The peanut seller looked helpless and frustrated. This young boy..was distracted and could not focus . He felt restless  and then experienced a calling from the Higher Power .!!..
 
That "calling" was Manovikas (www.manovikasfamily.org) and  that young boy is Dr. Alok Bhuwan.
