Arun is a true believer in the concept of One Wholesome World: a world that is joyful, socially just, and healthy for all (including future generations) co-created by communities of people who are living and leading consciously. It is this passionate desire to reach out to others that led Arun (along with his partner Anu) to start the Pragati Foundation, a Non-Government Organization based in Pune.

A man of varied interests, Arun is fond of long treks and walks with his four dogs Zorba, Zozo, Seefu, and Simba. He also enjoys conversations from the heart, meditation, graphic recording, dancing, and creative writing.
