Rakesh gave credits to his father for such a brave decision.

“My father was always not concerned about how much wealth I have. Everyday what he would ask me is, how much have you given this year in charity and how much taxes have you paid. He was financially independent. He said, ‘I don’t want anything from you but I will seek money from you for charity’. When he passed away in 2008, I really missed him, and I thought that the greatest homage I could give him is to give. I have to create an organisation that will be able to use this money in a way that can really make a difference to the society”.
