The spiritual leader and founder of ‘The Art Of Living’, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar recently launched a drug prevention campaign which goes by the #DrugFreeIndia. Bollywood celebrities, internet sensations and even the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi have shown their support towards this incredible campaign.
Our youth have such promising potential to blossom in life, but drugs rob not just the individual but their family, society & nation of that promise. We must do everything in our capacity to stop the drug menace. Let us all join together to create a #DrugFreeIndia. pic.twitter.com/RHZ0JPRqg8

I wholeheartedly support the #DrugFreeIndia movement organised by @SriSri Ji and his team. Their efforts will spread great awareness on the menace of substance abuse. Efforts like these reflect the collective will of our society towards a better and healthier future. @ArtofLiving

Drugs are not the solution to your problems. Using drugs due to peer pressure or just to look cool in front of your friends is wrong. They will ultimately impact you and the people around you negatively. If you are already involved with drug, know that you can always seek help to become sober.
Connecting Hearts, a public program today in Chandigarh.
