It was Rajiv’s years-long dream and vision to build a master sculpture unlike anything before that culminated in the sculpting of Jatayu – the fallen warrior bird from the Epic of Ramayana. When this dream was combined with the idea of giving life to a complete eco-tourism project that included various activities, Rajiv Anchal gave it the final design and still oversees the entire range of programmes.
In his own words “It was an ambitious project and required a lot of painstaking effort on the part of my team. Without any roads alternative ways to the peak, building materials had to be carried up, sometimes several times a day. It wasn’t easy to find labourers who could help me with the sculpting as it was such a laborious task. We had to brave adverse climate conditions including torrential downpours, storms and harsh heat. To give the workers some much-needed encouragement, I myself stayed up there with them throughout the task. Somehow, we managed to overcome all the odds and get it done. For that, I am deeply thankful to all my team members who worked day and night, relentlessly”.
The initial investors were all his friends. Rajiv himself had used much of his savings for the smooth completion of the project. Then came in more people confidently, just because the team had Rajiv Anchal in command. When someone stands up to give his life and blood for a cause, everything else turns in his favour. Needless to say, Jatayu Earth’ s Center owes it all to this man.
Rajiv has big plans in line for the Center which will all unfurl soon. His vision is to make the Center one of the most-visited tourism destinations in the world; and under his competent leadership, there’s no doubt as to how great the center will soon be.
