Nachiketa Tapovan, a spiritually ori-
ented service organisation was formed
in January 1999 to spread moral and
spiritual values. Tapovan aims at
achieving this by translating its ideals
into practical activities for the elevation
of humanity, irrespective of caste,
creed, community or gender, looking
upon people as the absolute manifes-
tation of the divine.
