“Keep your face always towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you”, said poet Walt Whitman once, and there’s one such young man who did exactly that as he rose like a shining star from a remote village in Himachal Pradesh, with unmetalled roads, meagre resources, and no promise of opportunity.

Tenacious and spirited Aakash Basoa who stands as a testament to the strength of the human spirit. He proved that with just a little support and guidance at the right time, with grit and persistence, nothing is beyond one’s reach. He emerged as a top performer of his batch, graduated with honours from his university and had been selected in July 2021 for the EYSMS scholarship.

Swamiji gifted Aakash a brand-new laptop from His holy hands, as a token of His appreciation and love for this high achiever who let nothing stand in his way of success!

A divine blessing indeed that will help propel him towards his dreams and inspire others to follow his lead.

Sri Badrika Ashram wishes Aakash the very best and is honoured to continue to support him in his professional journey till he is ready to make his own way in the world. Keep Smiling Aakash. We are rooting for you!
