250px-Arvind_Kejriwal

I was reading a magazine in my last journey where I read about a group called PARIVARTAN ( Change) . Started by  Arvind Kejriwal , who is a IIT passout, who further joined Indian Revenue service and became an Additional Commissioner of Income Tax. He was not happy with the way everyone took bribes to keep papers moving. The conscious had hit him hard.

In the year 2000, Arvind started PARIVARTAN  which focuses on the following issues:-

  1. Empowering Indian Citizens
  2. Awareness About RTI Act (Right to information Act 2005)
  3. Awareness about systematic solution towards Corruption and Red tapism.
  4. Facilitates Indian Citizens in there dealings with government department without any bribes.

Do not be surprised if you find people of PARIVARTAN standing outside any government department with banners like “ DON’T PAY BRIBE”  and exhorting Indian citizens, not to pay bribe for getting there problems fixed. The group also helps to facilitate Indian citizens get there work done without any bribe.

  • 2004: Ashoka Fellow, Civic Engagement.
  • 2005: ‘Satyendra Dubey Memorial Award’, IIT Kanpur for his campaign for bringing transparency in Government [2].
  • 2006: Ramon Magsaysay Award for Emergent Leadership.
  • 2006: CNN-IBN, ‘Indian of the Year’ in Public Service [10]
  • 2009: Distinguished Alumnus Award, IIT Kharagpur for Emergent Leadership.
  • I found it worth to be known to all the people. So thought to share. The idea is brilliant. Those who have that passion inside them can surely join. Those who still think they are doing good work can surely still be a part of them in some way or other maybe once in there life’s. Stop giving and taking bribes. To change the society we need to change ourself first.

    To reach him or to join him in some way or another please check his website – www.parivartan.com or you can also contact via email parivartan@parivartan.com .

      आदरणीय केजरीवाल जी ,

      विनम्र अभिवादन के साथ बधाइयां प्रेषित करती हूं कि आपने इस भ्रष्ट तंत्र के खिलाफ लड़ाई का एक पड़ाव जीत लिया है… भविष्य के लिए हम सबकी प्रार्थना है कि हमारी कोटि-कोटि सकारात्मक ऊर्जा हमेशा आपके साथ रहे। आप सभी हमेशा अपने उच्च मनोबल के साथ इस पवित्र यज्ञ को प्रज्जवलित रखें यही शुभकामना है। मैं स्वयं को सौभाग्यशाली समझती हूं कि पिछले दिनों मुझे आदरणीया किरण बेदी जी के हाथों दिल्ली में लाड़ली मीडिया अवॉर्ड2011 मिला। परम श्रद्धेय अन्ना जी के लिए हमने अपने पोर्टल पर वेबदुनिया पोल संपन्न करवाया। इसके अतिरिक्त अपने दो आलेखों और प्रतिक्रियाओं की लिंक आपको सादर प्रेषित कर रही हूं।

      आप सभी को ‍सविनय नमन करती हूं…

    22. gyananidhi padhiary says:

      Dear Mr. Kejriwal,
      I want to know what are your plans to stop corruption at grass root level? you know the Indians are now very busy in their personal life that they are reluctant to visit any office more than once. And exactly it is the basis of any corrupt practice. the govt. offices have made it a point to delay the things so much that the THE PUBLIC IS FED-up with the system and forced to offer a bribe before it is asked. there are certain offices where it is asked before hand and at other places the amount is fixed like …..well i would give it later.so…..
      The solution lies in e-governance- where time limit is fixed for every job and to contact the officials in case of job is not done.And you know it better that in most places where e-governance is implemented the sites are not up-dated regularly and contact nos. of imp. persons of the establishment are missing.
      thanks

    33. Rajeev Agarwal says:

      Dear Mr Kejriwal,

      I am a great supporter of Anna Hazare’s Anti Corruption movement & am interested in joining the movement to save our country from the clutches of politicians (I would call them Rakhashash of today’s time).

      Knowing from the newspaper that you are planning to support a party other than BJP/Congress or any such party & in this regard I would like to share my suggestions of forming a party in the leadership of Actor & Social activist Mr Amir Khan supported by intellectuals, social workers & who think of the nation first before their self.

      The movement can be started by issuing advertisement in the media by enrolling as a candidate in the coming elections through web site & by screening, the right candidate & can be allowed to contest with Anna’s team support.

      Looking forward to have your feedback & support.

      regard

    34. The logical status of political parties who are involved to bring the Joke Pal Bill is interactive compact among the political parties to safeguard corrupt leaders especially involved in corruption. So independant Inquiry agency for investigation of corruption – neither it has been formed so far nor it will be found in near future till the public voice is not spread all over the india and that will turn carry Grah Yudh.
