Lakshmi Govindrajan Javeri
As a journalist, she has chronicled the works of people who have made a difference in the lives of others in unique and courageous ways. Her idea of unwinding is through music in any form – live or otherwise. If given a chance, she would love to use music to work with the elderly because nothing gives more solace than time spent over music.
Vinayaga sees Social Responsibilities as a way of giving back a little of what has been provided to us by life in abundance. A lot of good work is being done in the social space, but lack of technology awareness means that most of this work happens in deep silos with little or no sharing. He wants to use technology as a bridge so that the social sector can focus on doing what they do best and not worry about the digitization and sharing of information.
