A few men were locked behind prison bars. Some of them looked below and saw mud. The others looked above and saw the stars. Everybody lives through the same life. But each of us perceives it in a different way. Look around. You will find some people making the best use of their life and enjoying it. Hence, they are happy. The others are merely wasting their life – cribbing and crying through it. They are not cherishing their life and are unhappy. What is the difference? The difference is – CHOICE. Those who make the best of life choose to do so and those who are wasting it, choose it too. What are you going to choose?

RVM is a 'Positivelife' philosopher, an Author, Speaker, Poet, Singer, Philanthropist and Motivator.

He was one of the earliest, successful Indian retailers who transformed retailing in India through his stores – Kids Kemp, Big Kids Kemp and Kemp Fort , Bangalore.

At the peak of his career, he decided to move away from his retail business and dedicate his life to more meaningful humanitarian work. He is now a well respected philosopher, poet, singer, speaker, motivator, author and philanthropist.

He started a Trust which has built the 125-bed capacity RVM Humanitarian Home for the destitute and needy. He also started the RVM Humanitarian Hospital, which is growing from a 150-bed charitable hospital to a 1000-bed one, offering free medical services to the poorest of the poor to reduce pain and suffering.

His spiritual efforts to spread the power of faith led him to build a 65 foot statue of LORD SHIVA at the Shiva temple, Old Airport Road, Bangalore which has now become a revered spiritual destination.
