Shram is derived from a Sanskrit word which means focused effort. Deep within, we believe that the only way to achieve or realize our goals is through unstinting effort. Our tagline Udeymen hi Sidyanti is taken from a Sanskrit shloka.
उद्यमेन हि सिध्यन्ति कार्याणि न मनोरथैः ।
न हि सुप्तस्य सिंहस्य प्रविशन्ति मुखे मृगाः ।।
The above shloka put into words the idea, that work gets accomplished by effort; not merely by wishing. The deer never enters a sleeping lion’s mouth willingly unless the lion wakes up to chase the deer.
A decade ago we created Shram, a self-help group by a small group of doctors and professionals from various walks of life. We started humbly by addressing the health problems of economically weaker section and less privileged patients.
