In conversation with Mr. Siddhartha Upadhyay, Founder & General Secretary, STAIRS, the episode discusses how sports can be an ideal tool for drug prevention.

We will also find out how STAIRS is making a huge impact by helping underprivileged children not just stay away from drugs, but also shine like sports champions. Also, listen to the brilliant plan he has in store. Mr. Upadhyay is a social entrepreneur committed to bringing a dynamic socio-cultural-economic change at the grassroots by direct action.
