SAI SEVA is a privately held company, which was founded initially by four Directors - Sujatha Raju, Prashanth R, Sai Narain CDK and Prasad Ayyagari, who all brought with them rich experiences in the fields of BPO services, Banking and Technology. NT Shiv Kumar joined SAI SEVA as Honorary Director and he has augmented the capabilities of the team with his extensive software and social networking experience.
"SAI SEVA is a pioneer on the rural BPO space. As Bhagwan Baba says 'Grama Seva is Rama Seva'. This venture is an effort to obey Bhagwan Baba's Divine command and be instruments in His mission to uplift the neglected villages by providing employment to the rural educated youth. I pray that this tiny spark should fire the inspiration of many to initiate the rural BPO revolution in India."
"During my student days under the Divine and watchful eyes of Bhagwan Baba the big lesson I had learnt was 'Education is for Life and not merely for a Living'. There is so much that is inside this statement. One of the key takeaways from this is that the education we acquire should add value to humankind. This Education of Bhagwan Baba has given us Character, Morality, Intelligence, Money, and above all it has given us the heart to Love all and Serve all. SAI SEVA is an endeavour to channelise this unparalleled Education to help our Villages to support themselves. I believe this is an opportunity that comes once in many life times and by the Grace of God we would like to make best use of it with the support of our Clients."
Sai Narain CDK
"In so many discourses to His management students, Bhagwan has spoken about the importance of providing employment opportunities in villages. Every time I remember that out of all those hundreds of students, I am one of those few chosen by Him to actually participate in such a venture, I feel so blessed and my heart is filled with gratitude. I also wish to express my heartfelt thanks to my teachers who inspired us and guided us to start this venture.I also convey my thanks to our client, Basix who partnered us in the realization of this concept. I pray to Swami to bless us all so that we may continue to do that which pleases Him most."
"Started with the inspiration of Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, this organization strikes a fine balance between providing quality, cost-effective services to the customer and providing real opportunities to the villagers in its neighborhood. Dedication, Enthusiasm and the can-do attitude of the SAI SEVA team has resulted in a successful first year and is also driving customer satisfaction and loyalty. My sincere and heart felt thanks to SAI SEVA customers, well wishers , active supporters and its young, energetic, ever smiling employees."
"I am passionate about transforming rural India thru technology and technology enabled services and truly believe it can be as impactful as the microfinance revolution that is sweeping the rural landscape. Saiseva's unique approach is a trail blazer template for the mainstream BPO's to adopt and replicate across the entire country."
