When this idea came to my mind, I called Tanmoy Chakrabarty in Delhi & shared this idea and he immediately agreed and said – “Let us go ahead and do it “. My second call was to BJP National Vice President Shri Shyam Jaju Ji and he too said – “Very good idea – go ahead “. My special thanks to them to be an integral part of not only this endeavour of VYCF but to have rallied and actively supported the foundation for many events in the past too!
