LIFE

Ravi Shankar was born in Papanasam, Tamil Nadu, to Visalakshi  Ratnam and R. S. Venkat Ratnam. He was named “Ravi” (a common Indian name meaning “sun”) because his birth was on a Sunday, and “Shankar” after the eighth-century Hindu saint, Adi Shankara, because it was also Shankara’s birthday. Ravi Shankar’s first teacher was Sudhakar Chaturvedi, an Indian Vedic Scholar and a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the St Joseph’s College of Bangalore University. After graduation, Shankar travelled with his second teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, giving talks and arranging conferences on Vedic science, and setting up Transcendental Meditation and Ayurveda centres.

Kashmir, India

The South Asian Forum for Peace was launched in November 2016 at a conference titled “Kashmir Back to Paradise” in Jammu. According to Ravi Shankar, 90% of people in Kashmir want peace but are neglected. He added, “The solution to the Kashmir problem can only come from the Kashmiris”. This forum would bring together eight South Asian countries to cooperate and work in areas such as entrepreneurship, skill development, cultural exchange, educational partnerships and women empowerment initiatives among others.

Northeast India

68 militants from 11 militant outfits surrendered to the government in Manipur on the eve of India’s 71st Independence Day in August 2017. The Chief Minister of Manipur, N. Biren Singh, lauded Ravi Shankar for his efforts in making this happen & “bringing peace in troubled areas”. Ravi Shankar’s organization has been working in Manipur for the last 15 years.

In September 2017, at the “Strength in Diversity – North East Indigenous People’s Conference”, Ravi Shankar claimed that another 500 militants were waiting to “lay down weapons and join the peace process”. The conference was attended by representatives from 67 rebel outfits from the Northeast. Expressing his willingness to facilitate the peaceful transition of any rebel group wanting to join the mainstream, Ravi Shankar claimed that his organization has been working for this for the last 10-12 years and “will continue to work until the last gun is laid down”. Former ULFA General Secretary, Anup Chetia, who was also the convenor of the conference, appreciated Ravi Shankar’s interest and efforts for peace in the region.
