Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, humanitarian and founder of the Art of Living, would embark upon a unique ‘Journey of Peace’ in Andhra Pradesh in February. Titled ‘Anugraha Yatra’, this tour incorporates travel by a special train christened ‘Sri Sri Express’ to different places over 5 days from February 15 to19, across the districts of Rangareddy, Mahbubnagar, Kurnool, Anantapur, Kadapa, Chittoor, Nellore, Prakasam, Guntur, Krishna as well as west and east Godavari. Over 1000 people from across India and other countries would accompany him on this tour.

While Sri Sri’s aim is to motivate people to view nation-building as their responsibility and engage in such transformative action with enthusiasm and energy, the specific themes of this tour include:
I Vote for a Better India (Voter awareness drive), an initiative to inspire all citizens to get a voter ID and participate in the democratic process.
Save the Girl Child, a nationwide effort with UNICEF to inspire people across all walks to life to take a pledge to protect the girl child.
Plant-a-Tree, a simple effort which if taken up by enough people can significantly improve the environment.
