  3. 3. We are a group of people who believe that true development is the direct result of ordinary citizens joining together and working towards a common objective. We are advocates for a culturally richer and enabling India . Our mission is to look for practical and simple alternatives , and build a positive poly-cultural nation with inspiration from Gandhi , Martin Luther King and Aurobindo and Social practitioners like Amartya Sen. We believe that Information and Communication are the most powerful tools of development. We are committed to make these available to as many as possible. Our strength is drawn from the support of ordinary people. Ordinary people, when united , can do extra – ordinary things. We advocate Millennium Development Goal , Universal Human Rights and Children’s Right, and focus on about issues around equality, fraternity and tolerance. We combat sectarianism and discrimination against people because of caste , colour , health status or sexuality.Conatct No: +91-9560061098 Fax : +91-1143851098 Email:info@aasraindia.org
