Saving Lives on the Dangerous Roads of India

Back to ARC

After a tragedy, Piyush Tewari vowed to improve road safety and save lives. Tewari founded the SaveLife Foundation in early 2008, months after he lost a 17-year-old cousin to a road accident in the northern Indian city of Kanpur. At the time, Tewari oversaw the Indian operations of the Calibrated Group, a U.S. _private-equity_ fund. Hit by a vehicle, my cousin was bleeding on the road, but he had enough strength to drag himself to the side of the road and ask for help, says Tewari. None came. His cousin eventually died.
