In the year 2011, we had interviewed Rushabh Turakhia, creator of YourTurnNow concept who has so far spread thousands of Your Turn Now cards and has played a vital role in adding smile on people’s faces. He is back with another milestone this time, a book of inspirational stories, true stories. The book is acclaimed to be a kids book but I believe that it would be a book for readers of all ages. We wish Rushabh, author and publisher all the best wishes for this book to reach to many. Below are details of the book and the launching program which is to be organized in Mumbai on January 19, 2013.

Remember the time someone ran past you in corridor and jostled you against the wall?
Remember the time no one shared a sip of water when your bottle fell and the water spilled out?
Remember the time no one was your friend for the day?
Remember the times you looked for a moment of kindness but did not find it?
The fact is everyone has a well of kindness deep inside of them. You just have to remind them to use it. And when they do, it triggers off a chain of happiness that transforms everyone it touches.
‘Your Turn Now’ is a movement started by Rushabh Turakhia with a simple concept – to remind children and adults to use their innate kindness. This movement has now spread to several countries and has touched hundreds of lives. From housemaids to housewives, from students to tourists, from children to old men, they have all been touched by a stranger’s kindness. They share these special moments in this heart-warming, inspiring collection of stories.

About YOUR TURN NOW
“Your Turn Now” and is a global kindness project started in 2009. Your turn now is basically about making the world a better place through nameless acts of everyday kindness. Its simple –you help someone in any way, big or small, from offering a traffic policeman a bottle of water on a hot day to helping an accident victim and instead of stopping there, you give them a card that says “Your Turn Now”. It’s a simple ‘pay-it-forward’ concept involving no monetary transaction and no affiliation to any company, corporate house, religious organisation or community. Since its inception in 2009, we have handed out over 91,000+ cards and the movement has spread to 28 countries around the globe in 8 different languages! You can call for YOUR TURN NOW cards from our website www.yourturnnow.in or send a text message on +919029602897 or email at email@example.com
