With a Foreword by Gulzar, Ek Koshish traces the genesis and journey of Arushi, a Bhopal- based voluntary organization that empowers people with disabilities, especially children. Gulzar has been closely associated with Arushi for the last three decades and in conversations with the author, he talks about his relationship with the children of Arushi and the numerous ways in which he works with the organization. Light and humorous, sombre and uplifting, the narrative captures the various moods and emotions of Gulzar as he discusses a wide range of issues. Along with Gulzar, the author chronicles the work of Arushi in the words of its two founders. Ek Koshish is an attempt to bring to the reader the inspiring work of hundreds of volunteers spread all over the world who come together to make the world 'one bit better', as they say at Arushi
