As you grow older you will discover you have two hands, one for helping yourself and one for helping others.
~Audrey Hepburn
Sail beyond the horizon; fly higher than you ever thought possible; magnify your existence by helping others; be kind to people and animals of all shapes and sizes; be true to what you value most; shine your light on the world; and be the person you were born to be. –
~ Blake Beattie

This unique idea has been designed by our chosen REX Karmaveer Global Fellows, enabling each and all of our fellows to make a contribution and leave behind a lasting legacy of wisdom transfer to benefit future generations. The reason the fellows conceptualised and created GIFFFT is to support the REX Karmaveer Global Fellowship movement to sustain and scale up without being dependent on companies or sponsors who dilute our guiding principles and credibility of the awards program and process.
GIFT IT FORWARD starts with ONE, your power of ONE. Yes, this is the Power of our chosen REX Karmaveer Global Fellows to create a long and lasting legacy to do right. REX Karmaveer Global Fellows can now experience the real JOY OF GIVING by GIFTING IT FORWARD and nominating future fellows.

You may even nominate someone who you have heard about after doing some basic due diligence. By nominating them you would be supporting and empowering them to gain through the fellowship network, the PRICELESS GIFTS of wisdom, knowledge, self-learning through insight sharing for self-awareness, social consciousness and deep sensitization about the social, economic, political and cultural happenings in our world.
Serving as the Indian Ambassador to several countries, Kavita and I have attended several learning forums at Harvard in the US, British Columbia in Canada and University of Peace in Costa Rica. However, we are both simply enlightened with the learning we have acquired in the past 2 Right every Wrong Conclaves. This is the real wisdom and learning which the topmost Universities do not offer. To paraphrase Socrates “The Right every Wrong conclave brings truths out of others for the betterment of self & society.” – Ambassador Mr. Jagdish. C Sharma (Ministry of External Affairs) said this after he attended the first 2 Conclaves of 2006 and 2007 with his wife Dr. Kavita Sharma who was the Principal of Hindu College at that time. (This feeling as expressed above by Dr. Kavita Sharma and Ambassador Mr. J. C. Sharma has been experienced by all our fellows).
The common thread bonding all our fellows are the gifts of an open mind and free will to Learn2Learn and Teach2Learn with each other irrespective of our title, age or stature, because the idea is to create a network where fellows can mentor and be mentored, thus benevolently learning and benefitting from each other.

Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the power to discern, to choose, to respond, to change.

Thus, a unique ‘Perpetual Philanthropy for Social Justice model’ nurturing Global Individual Social Responsibility has been created and nurtured by the REX Karmaveer Global Fellows, with courage of conviction and compassion for inspiring others towards making a difference in our world. REX Karmaveer GIFFFT is based on the centuries old wisdom of Paying It Forward. Read more about the Gift it Forward concept and how it has nurtured humanity over the years.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pay_it_forward
GIFT IT FORWARD is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed, who repays the good deed to others instead of to the original benefactor. To paraphrase the wise philosopher, poet and lecturer Ralph Waldo Emerson who was the first to promote the Paying It Forward idea “In the order of nature we cannot render benefits to those from whom we receive them. But the benefit we receive must be rendered again, line for line, deed for deed, cent for cent, to some more people as we go forward in our life”.
Essentially, the aim of the fellowship and REX Karmaveer GIFFFT is to enable chosen fellows to feel, enjoy and experience THE JOY OF GIVING and sponsor their friends, family members and associates for bringing together likeminded, ethical and socially conscious people from several sectors across the world.

~ Socrates
We the fellows at REX Karmaveer Global Fellowships conceptualized the idea of Global Individual Social Responsibility, where ‘Greatness’ simply means Individual Responsibility and Character. You achieve greatness when you discover your purpose and are driven by passion to fulfill the same. Our Fellows believe in fulfilling their Individual Social Responsibility and volunteer altruistically while striving for Global Change.
This contribution will not only enable us to carry on the fellowships process but will also help us sustain and preserve high levels of integrity and credibility by always saying ‘NO’ to any kind of unethical funding and support. In 2013-14, we had requested a small GIFT IT FORWARD contribution of Rs. 7,500 from all fellows who were chosen and confirmed. All our fellows not only contributed that amount, but some fellows even pledged bigger amounts ranging from INR 10000 to INR 10 million, while others went the extra mile and contributed in kind by paying for websites, mailers, food, tea etc.
Our fellows also advised us to continue this as a REX Karmaveer Global Fellowship custom and tradition in the future to always sustain the sanctity and credibility of the REX CONCLiVE, REX Karmaveer Global fellowships and the Karmaveer awards. Last year we incurred a cost of a little over INR. 4 million for the REX CONCLiVE and half of that was underwritten by our fellow’s contributions.

Why was the REX Karmaveer GIFFFT idea developed and created for the Mission?

Over the years, REX has been nurtured and sustained as an independent community event and wisdom forum, growing organically, with self-generated funds through the founders’ consulting assignments. At REX CONCLiVE, our founding principles state that we shall never have any censorship or edits on what people would want to speak, if it is based on authentic facts and the truth. We pride ourselves for having lived up to our principles for a decade now and will continue doing so always, as only the truth should always triumph.

GIFFFT contribution will not only enable us to carry on the fellowships process but will also help us sustain and preserve high levels of integrity and credibility by always saying ‘NO’ to any kind of unethical funding and support. In 2013-14, we had requested a small GIFT IT FORWARD contribution of Rs. 10,000 from all fellows who were chosen and confirmed. All our fellows not only contributed that amount, but some fellows even pledged a further annual contribution while others went the extra mile and contributed in kind by paying for websites, mailers, food, tea etc.
In November 2012 at the FIRST REX Karmaveer Global Fellowships award ceremony, all our fellows heard us speak about our ethos and ethical stand in our 7th REX and Karmaveer awards inaugural speeches. When they learned about how we have been declining sponsorship and blood money over the years from unethical companies and organisations, several REX Karmaveer Global Fellows reached out and pledged their solidarity and support. One of our fellows Dr. Ranjit Chandra, the globally renowned father of nutrition and immunology pledged Rs.1, 00,000 at the forum and also presented the Cheque on the spot to the REX Karmaveer Founders at the ceremony itself.
This kind gesture by Dr. Chandra sparked the idea to create and institute “REX Karmaveer GIFFFT- “Gift It Forward Future Fellowship Tree” Endowment Program”. Several Fellows and friends created the REX Karmaveer GIFFFT program and have contributed valuable ideas to improve the REX Karmaveer GIFFFT idea, over the past few years. Most of our fellows and thought leaders have also made initial investments at idea stage, with personal contributions ranging from INR 10000/- to INR 10 million to support, sponsor and nominate deserving and worthy future Fellows like you. This is the power of ideas for action and we hope that all our future fellows also

Dear Jerry
Have you seen this nonsense? http://thinkworks.in/
When you look at this page and see who the sponsors are, it’s like a rogues gallery of companies who spend more time in the courts that anywhere else; Essar Group, Unitech, DLF, Adani. What great company to keep. I’m proud to be associated with iCongo and REX that refuse to sup with the devils!! All the best Mark
In 2013, Mark Parkinson, globally renowned educationist and a REX Karmaveer Puraskaar Laureate wrote the mail given above to us. A month after this mail, Thinkfest and its promoters came under the scanner for being sponsored with unethical funding and other issues. The same is happening with several global forums and fellowships including TED and other forums, who are being questioned for accepting funds from unethical companies like Monsanto and also for disallowing people to speak out, their ideas and thoughts at their forums. Check links below. Dr. Richard Saul Wurman the original Founder of TED is our mentor at REX and has advised us to never give up the ethics of our editorial values and content, and we never will.
For over 15 years now REX and iCONGO have said NO to any kind of unethical funding from big conglomerates and resisted all temptation to scale up faster, by not accepting any and all kind of unethical funding and funding that would create censorship and stifle the truth. REX – not just TALKS! Ideas for ACTION CONCLiVE, is not just about having cool speakers or talkers, but having speakers who WALK THE TALK and WALK THE WALK. Over the years we have brought in the best ROCKSTAR SPEAKERS whose actions speak louder than their words and they have inspired others with their ideas for action, to be the change makes a difference in our world.

REX is the pioneering Ideas for Action, wisdom-transfer, knowledge-sharing and CULTURETAINMENT event. Besides EMINENT speakers and performers from several countries, we most importantly spotlight REAL UNSUNG HEROES from the grassroots, who share their indigenous ideas which are making a huge difference in our world every day. REX has been nurtured and sustained as an independent community event and wisdom forum, organically, with self-generated funds through consulting assignments. At REX CONCLiVE our founding principles state that we shall never have any censorship or edits on what people would want to speak, if it is based on authentic facts and the truth. We pride ourselves for having lived up to our principles for a decade now and will continue doing so always, as only the truth should always triumph which is incidentally also the compelling and inspiring mission statement of our beloved country “SatyamevaJayate”.
We are grateful to all of our supporters for reaching out and supporting us to stand by our decision and sustaining our sanctity while scaling-up our Joy of Giving, REX, Karmaveer, Karmayuga and Right every Wrong mission.
