      From: Shobhit Mathur <shobhit.mathur@...>

      I am leaving on September 19th morning. I will be at home for a week till Dusshera and catch up with relatives.

      Thereafter, I am planning to visit NE India. Specifically, Guwahati and Arunachal and meet our pracharak Vijay Swami ji.
      I am also planning to visit Chitrakoot in Uttar Pradesh (http://www.chitrakoot.org). It is a very novel project and I have heard lots of good words about it.

      After a good 1 month break, I will join Banyan and Zreyas venture advisory firm in middle of October. They are located in Hyderabad. I will specifically look into advising Social ventures. It is a brand new startup, started by few of our swayamsevaks.

      Doctor ji, provided a simple and scalable solution for uniting the Hindu Society i.e. Shakha. In the long term, I would like to choose a socio-economic problem (health care/primary education/poverty/etc) and provide a similar simple and scalable solution for that or help in propagating an existing solution.
