In this short interview, you receive only a small glimpse into the wisdom that Reva has shared with all of us. As reporters and producers of this podcast, we owe so much of our inspiration to Reva. She continues to impart not just knowledge but also excitement and joy upon this podcast, and perhaps this is why this episode is so dear to us all. Since the podcast's inception, she has provided guidance and support to us. In this episode, you'll hear about the four pillars of the Jai Jagat movement, some background on the movement, and Reva's involvement. She also discusses the importance of taking action, whether large or small, every day. Starting with this episode, a series of #everydayactions4peace will be released on our Instagram, so please check us out on social media for more information by following @ourpeacepodcast.

In this episode, we speak with Mudit Shrivastava, a man who was among a group of 50 people who committed to marching for one year, from Delhi to Geneva, in the name of justice and peace. The march was halted on March 15, 2019 in Armenia due to COVID-19. The movement and march are called Jai Jagat, and this is just one of many episodes that will attempt to document and capture the spirit of such a grand undertaking. The march itself is what inspired this podcast, so it’s important that we share a little more about Jai Jagat. In essence, the movement is focused around creating spaces for groups to work together to make nonviolent change on issues related to justice and peace. These issues center around four main pillars: eradicating poverty, stopping social discrimination, mitigating the climate crisis, and reducing war and conflict. While the group of marchers have all returned to their home countries due to the pandemic, they plan to resume the march from Armenia to Geneva in support of these four pillars next year. Until then, our podcast helps keep this march alive. We are humbled and honored to support this movement. We hope you enjoy this episode.
