Max Bupa Walk for Health - October 20,2013 - Delhi and Mumbai.

Esha is very very happy to be a partner in this initiative:

Max Bupa Walk for Health is a first of its kind initiative brought to you by Max Bupa Health Insurance Company. In its second year now, the Walk for Health will take place simultaneously across Delhi and Mumbai on the 20th of October 2013. The event invites people across all walks of life and age groups to participate in the 5km or the 2km Walk, which will also feature a plethora of entertainment and fitness activities for the participants. The event will also see celebrities, large communities, corporates and schools participating in large groups. 

Here is your chance to initiate a long term sustainable change in your lifestyle to keep yourself and your loved ones well. See your city information pages for the latest happenings and updates of the walk in your city and register now to participate.
Max Bupa Walk for Health 2013 is focused on Delhi and Mumbai, as owing to a sedentary lifestyle, people living in these metros are more prone to stress and lead an unhealthy life. Prominent as the IT/Telecom and BFSI hubs of India, the people in these cities work long hours which leaves them with hardly any spare time to exercise. Bupa's global research in 13 countries has revealed that high stress level, unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyle has high negative impact on people's health.

Joy of Giving
The following is a guest post from one of the students of the School of Inspired Leadership on her experience attending the Read-a-fest event conducted by the Student coordinators of Esha. Have a read.

The joy of giving is a feeling that could be felt only by the true benevolent soul and heart. If sometime in my life I ask myself a question “who is the person that means the most to me”, I would count on the people who shared my pain and caress my wound with warmth of care and console rather than who gave me solutions, advices or showed the ways to cure it.  So it’s not about how we give but it’s about how much love and compassion we put in while giving to others. I feel proud to say this festival of philanthropy was celebrated by the “GO-GIVERS” batch at School of Inspired Leadership.  Esha, a NGO that works for the blind, organized a Read-A-Fest event to celebrate the Joy of Giving Week. Our batch of students recorded voices for audio books which are meant for the visually impaired children.  This will go to the online library CLABIL(Central library for Audio books in Indian Language) which already has over 1000 audio files recorded by Friends of Esha. Furthermore we are also planning to audio record some mini case studies on general management and finance which would help these students in their entrance exams and management institutes. This is an initiative taken up by BLP program Chair- Ms. Neetika Batra. It gives me immense pleasure to say that amidst such tight schedules we got a good number of volunteers to work on this project. This is the joy of giving that our “GO-GIVERS” enjoy by contributing to such a noble cause. These are the people that get more joy out of giving to others by putting a good deal of thought into happiness.
