Delhi, May 2016: Dr Shashi Tharoor was seen inaugurating Armaan Malhotra’s Art Exhibition at Alliance France Art Gallery.

Armaan Malhotra, founder of One Step Forward (OSF) a Non-Governmental Organization which works against Terrorism & supports War Widows.

Dr Shashi Tharoor was a special guest where he motivated people to take that one step forward in their lives and try to move on and lead better lives because they deserve it.

One Step Forward intend on conducting workshops appreciating various creative forms the proceeds of which will go to the affected victims. They plan on spreading the word with our work and projects in the terrorist affected states in India and hope to stop terrorism worldwide.

It has been said pretty openly now that each individual needs to fend for himself in the war against terror. Security threats have dramatically evolved in the 21st century and are not confined to national boundaries any longer. New criminal networks tend to be interconnected and organized and the lines between crime and terrorism have become blurred. 

The main objective of OSF would be to educate and make citizens aware of the kind of threats India is facing and about the psyche of the terrorists so that they are aware and well equipped psychologically to deal with the fall out of terrorism and how adversely it affects the peace of our country.

Armaan Malhotra kick started this noble drive in January, 2016 as it is his belief that every responsible human need to study counter terrorism as a subject. This subject becomes more important considering the number of terrorist attacks India and the world is facing today. OSF works to ensure better co-ordination, strengthened coherence and more efficient use of its resources in addressing the everyday challenges faced by the affected. 

Our efforts lie in preparing people to identify potential threats and take note of suspicious behavior of people. 

Another matter of concern which is very close to OSF is the state of War Widows in our country. We plan on taking good care of them as we feel the kind of suffering they go through is incomparable and this distress demands special attention.

Armaan Malhotra, a student of Modern School is currently studying in 11th  standard. He has been very active and fond of various sports, mainly lawn tennis with MBTT Academy and has won numerous trophies in singles and doubles. He loves to read, travel and discuss politics.

Compassionate by nature, Armaan has always been committed to supporting the underprivileged in his own way through organizing blood donation camps at his grandfather’s organization as well as donating two water coolers with his own pocket money. It was his brainchild to reach out to the youth regarding the anti terrorism campaign to educate them about it. He is deeply concerned with the growing terrorism globally and feels that it has to be rightly understood at the grassroot level, and therefore this entire campaign was initiated.
