By some estimates, 74% of Indian homes have at least one member who is an addict.
10 people commit suicide in India each day due to drug abuse.
These aren’t just numbers but scores of family lives, careers and relationships ruined.
As a response to this need, a nationwide campaign Drug Free India, an initiative of The Art of Living, will be launched on 18th February at Chandigarh University and at Guru Jambeshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar, Haryana with the support of Government of Haryana on 19th February in the presence of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who will be joined by popular Bollywood actor, Sanjay Dutt.
Other Bollywood celebrities including Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Parineeti Chopra, Katreena kaif, Kapil Sharma, and Badshah have also lend their support to Drug Free India, an integrated campaign with a 360 degree focus on combating the drug menace.
