In 2003, I embarked on a journey to perfect self-sustaining enterprises — Aakash Ganga to bring water to communities with no access to safe drinking water — and Arogya, to deliver primary healthcare at the doorstep of rural families. At that time, sustainability was just an in-vogue buzzword to me.  I recall inviting several friends over for dinner to chart out a plan for using our prodigious skills and resources to help the neediest back home in India. One of them thumped the table and asked: “What difference will it make if we were to give $100 million to India?” Silence ruled the moment. Meaning, none. If not money, what will make a difference?

I have been a leader in the church for almost 40 years. In addition, I have served as a director on nine boards, for organizations very small to very large. I have always thought it important to amass as much knowledge as possible to be a good leader and board director. When it is my job to seek board candidates, I am always on the hunt for people who are intellectually sharp and come with significant life experiences and achievements. That only makes sense, doesn’t it?
