The world needs peace’ it all begins with this. We all strive to work for change, change which is said to be inevitable.
Everyone strives to make ends meet, some are working to get better at what they do, yet there is an urge of wanting more.

In the midst of everything, there are some, determined to bring about a change, an everlasting, legitimate change, a change that could transform lives forever, a change that could add a new dimension and a change that could bring about happiness.

With the huge gamut of worldly things that we all are exposed to, Malav has filtered a few and aspires to do justice to the choices that he has made. The perfect blend of spirituality with the spirit to make a difference is what drives him every day.
As he puts it, “the scriptures have already identified what needs to be done, all we have to do is To-Gather every bit, to ’Look at the blissful – bigger picture’, to create the magic for ‘Sab Ka Mangal Ho’ or the ‘wellness of all’, to trigger the wave of ‘MeFree’ – the need for liberating thyself, to unite with the ultimate consciousness and complete the puzzle of life.” From teaching Yoga across orphanages around India, to creating the best quality Yoga products, along with leading the operations for the packaging and chemicals business, is just the beginning for Malav. Over the years, constant improvement in all aspects to make lives easier for everyone else, is his key
Malav has a global vision to amalgamate all good and worthy, growing his confraternity with enthusiastic, dedicated people for the global welfare. “Look for the iridescence in each soul, the mind is limitless, the goal is to be one, it is to illuminate and to be free”, he reinforces.
