Defeating the spirit of the stringent anti-defection Bill passed by Parliament during the time of NDA-1 under Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2003.

BK Golo Pilz,a regular at international climate change conferences, often made spirited presentations on the India One Solar Thermal Power Project that had been underway at Abu Road in Rajasthan since many years.

Golo Pilz, the plant’s project head first explains the workings of the solar thermal plant, and then devotes an equal amount of time in convincing his audience that ‘we are all part of one world’ and that the responsibility of making it a ‘better place’ lies with us. The renewable energy showcase project is researched and designed by the World Renewal Spiritual Trust,a sister organisation of the Brahma Kumaris. With ‘Om Shanti’ as motto, all team members from across the world and India, working on the project, are offered meditation classes as a matter of course.
