Gandhi of IDF

What a co-incidence of thinking.

Like Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our nation, who was a crusader of leprosy work, his look-alike, Dr. Sharad Nayampally is also a crusader of leprosy work.

Dr. Sharad Nayampally who is an international Yoga Therapist and an Alternative Medicine expert having intense knowledge in wheat-grass, accupressure and allied therapy is an Ambassador of Indian Development Foundation (formerly Indian Leprosy Foundation).

Keen on doing social work, Dr. Sharad joined IDF to help humanitarian causes in national interest. Retired from the Hindustan Lever Limited, Dr. Sharad has been a great person with a lot of social commitments. Dr. Sharad has directed over 60 dramas and also acted in a couple of movies.

I felt bad when i could not get through playing Mahatma Gandhi's role in the famous `Lage Raho Munnabhai', said Dr. Sharad. Quoting Gandhiji's words, `We must be the change we wish to see', Dr. Sharad did a further practice and finally got a entry in to India Today's Ad doing his most endearing role. Finally Dr. Sharad got a chance to act the role of Mahatma Gandhi in India Today's ad. I feel elated and extremely happy to have played the role of Bapuji. It is interesting and revealing. One need to know Bapuji fully before enacting the role.

I love doing social work and also teaching yoga to people, Dr. Sharad said. I am happpy with IDF, as i am able to engage my self in social service activities.

My wish is to visit South Africa and see the work done by our Bapuji. Conducting AIDS awareness programme in rural areas and doing village development work are in the cards, expressed Dr. Sharad.

Indian Development Foundation wishes Dr. Sharad Nayampally good luck in his social service assignments.

Dr. Sharad is well known as Gandhi of IDF.

I would like to assure those who would serve Daridranarayana that there is music, art, economy and joy in the spinning wheel.
.....Mahatma Gandhi.
Leprosy work is not merely medical relief, it is transforming frustration in life into joy of dedication, personal ambition into selfless service.
.......Mahatma Gandhi.


Tension nai leneka, Bapu hai na !
