They worked under the influence of a concept known as GANDHI’S TAVIJ
It was pronounced by Mahatma Gandhi himself.
He said that when you feel frustrated and dismayed or your wealth & strength makes you egoistic, then look towards the poorest among the poor people, who are quiet helpless, in spite the desire to work for livelihood, they donâ€™t get work or opportunity and then start thinking as to how can be helpful to them.These poor people are living in extreme poverty. They are backward in every respect. They are illiterate, malnourished, without cloths, good protective cover over their heads. You must think about them as to how you can be helpful to them.By thinking positively about these people, one can feel free of frustration, disparity and egoistic tendencies.
