Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are known for their successful careers in the entertainment and sports industries, respectively. But the couple has also been making headlines for their philanthropic efforts. At the recent Indian Sports Honour awards, they announced the launch of their new philanthropic venture called SEVVA. SEVVA is an acronym for their names – ‘SE’ of self, ‘V’ of Virat, ‘V’ of Vamika (their daughter), and ‘A’ of Anushka.
In their speech at the event, the couple expressed their desire to give back to society and shared their philosophy of philanthropy. Virat quoted Khalil Ghibran, saying that the truest form of giving is not donating material wealth but sharing a part of oneself. Anushka added that they are just instruments, and they are offering seva (service) with a head bowed in gratitude.
So, with our heads bowed in gratitude we are offering SeVVA – our joint non-profit which stands for Se (of Self), V (of Virat), V (of Vamika) A (of Anushka). As Seva is always from self of self.
