In addition to the categories, to celebrate perseverance and accomplishment despite odds, JKYog is also pleased to especially honor the following well-known personalities:

“Mother of Orphans”, Ms. Sindhutai Sapkal

Sindhutai Sapkal

“Mother of Orphans”, Ms. Sindhutai Sapkal, Indian social worker and social activist who rescued and nurtured over 1000 orphans to enable them to live fulfilling and productive lives.

One must live life for others and meet obstacles bravely instead of running from them because there is no other way to live life.” - Sindhutai Sapkal

Swami Mukundananda speaks of Sindhutai Sapkal in glowing terms in his Mind Management Challenge: “This Sindhutai Sapkal, the mother of the orphans is a blazing example of someone who externally was facing such hardships but lifted her own thoughts, enriched her own mind to lead such a wonderful life. That is why I say, there is a huge difference between the quality of your living and the quality of your life.

 Dr Swati Mohan, Guidance Controls and Operations Lead for the NASA Mars 2020 Mission (Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California - JPL), which successfully landed Perseverance, the latest Mars Rover. "JPL is incredibly diverse. I am not the only woman of color. I am not the only Indian woman or the only woman or non-binary. Everyone is respectful of each other. And I think that’s part of the reason that Perseverance was able to succeed…I definitely think diversity helps with innovation.” - Dr. Swati Mohan
