Say’s Abhijit…”Our world is filled with so much negativity and violence. And because of this, individuals from all walks of life tend to forget that what gets us through the dark days are stories of hope. “UP WORDS” stories of hope are those that say to the reader, “look what he or she has done; I too can do that.” The magazine believes that life’s limitations can inspire us to strive for heights we may not have reached otherwise.”
