In this quest of righteousness we have been ably guided and mentored by the best of the fraternity. We are associated with Nobel Laureate Mr. Kailash Satyarthi; Padma Bhushan Dr.D.R Mehta (founder and chief patron of Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, Jaipur); Mr.N.K.Choudhary (Founder of Jaipur Rugs, Ghandhi of Carpet Industry, Jaipur Rugs Company Pvt.
