Rajagopal and his wife, Jill Carr-Harris, are Gandhian leaders of a civil society organization in India, Ekta Parishad. They have several ashrams where they train uneducated youths to take the initiative in their villages to challenge corrupt practices and hold officials accountable for providing services to the poor. They have led a march across india for up to 100,000 poor people, who were going to Delhi, but the government came to meet them and passed legislation allocating land to the poor, though more can be done along those lines, and providing direct payments of cash to poor people.
