Bhavabhuthi, the 13th century Sanskrit poet, recognised that Karuna (pathos) is the only Rasa (emotional and transformative state of mind).
Gautami. A name to reckon with. And a life that has Karuna at its core.
Gautami is a name that is inseparable from the Indian entertainment industry’s growth. An acclaimed actress and an erudite person, her work has breathed life into more than 130 films in 5 Indian languages. Her presence and grace carried many a regional television programme for the global Indian audience. Her journey in entertainment industry took a poignant turn when she was diagnosed with cancer. While her resolve and personality played a defining role in her reclaiming her health, the journey, in one subtle and elevating moment, transformed her outlook on life to become inclusive and expansive. And that moment marked the birth of Life Again Foundation. Today, Life Again responds to every call for help with Karuna at its core.
