Some Feedback on Banjara Academy's Accomplishments and Contribution
I would be delighted to assist your efforts in my personal capacity as well as in my professional capacity.
--- Dr. Mohan Isaac (Visiting Professor, NIMHANS)
I was so impressed when I visited your place and learned about your work that I often quote your example to show what 'one man of good will' can do. Also to show how when one man takes the 'risk' of breaking out of the crowd and reaches out to help people in need, many others rally round. Many 'good people' seem to be waiting for 'catalytic agents' like you to activate them.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.
With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!
Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Sreedhar MA
