A graduate from IIM-Ahmedabad, Siddharth was part of the Indian stock markets for almost 5 years in Mumbai. There, he headed the largest derivatives desk and setup the first Algorithmic trading desk in the country.A search for inner satisfaction took him to the eco-system at Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad where he has been volunteering with his wife, learning from small acts of compassionate service for the last two years.It was there that he was exposed to service as a form of unconditional giving. One such experiment was the Seva Café, a Gift Economy restaurant that has served almost 90,000 meals till date. He began to see the beauty in gift culture – which was in direct contrast to traditional business models he had studied.
