Where do your beliefs come from? Religion ? Family? Work? Any other?
Belief is a state of the mind when we consider something true even though we are not 100% sure or able to prove it. Everybody has beliefs about life and the world they experience. Mutually supportive beliefs may form belief systems, which may be religious, philosophical or ideological. Religions are belief systems that relate humanity to spirituality. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
The family is the place where the intergenerational transmission of religious beliefs and practices takes place and thus it is of crucial importance for. Religion can be a central part of one’s identity. The word religion comes from a Latin word that means “to tie or bind together.”
As I mentioned earlier that I am into Para Medical field so I love to help and see patients. Also, my family background is very supportive My cousin brother Mr. Sameer Dinesh Sanghavi is always ready to help me anytime. He always tells me – do whatever you want to do, I am always there for you and with you which i feel is a very nice gesture
And also I believe that “Salah nahi, Sath dena” & fourth but not the least my friends those are in to this field in so many years and also my mentor who inspired me, Mr. Nileshbhai Shah & Mr. Hiteshbhai Kaku.
Which politicians do you admire most?
I always believe that service-related work is the most gratifying. And Knowing that my job is part of a larger initiative to improve public life it motivated me further. I have always been drawn to opportunities that allow me to serve other people. I became interested in Nationalist Congress Party after being inspired by our beloved Shri Sharad Pawar Sahab.
Tell us something more about yourself?
I have always been a people person. It’s one of the aspects of government that I find most appealing, I have developed a set of skills that are specific to communicating with people to find the best solutions. I feel their concerns should be taken note and at the same time a politician needs to learn to keep calm and make sure people feel valued.”
I am working in Para medical field since last 20years and counting, I have approximately worked on over 1.3 lakh+ patients. I know the psychology of patients and people also. I am also the part of this NCP team since long and now I am doing this to help the needy person & give them genuine advice.
In Politics, what Criteria could you use to decide which ideas or approaches work best for development of Society?
One should give all participants a number of votes (around three to four should do) to choose and write down their personal favourite ideas. We should allow every member to have an equal say in the shortlisted ideas and get approval by Senior leaders.
Instead of focusing on the past, what would you like to see happen in the future? Why?
Looking back is to learn from my mistakes and be a better now in my present and in the future. Experiences always taught us how to fight and face challenges in…
- Express your feelings about the past.
- Forgive and forget.
- Focus on happy things.
Get help. If these methods have not worked for you, you should seek help in order to get over your past, worry less about the future, and focus on the present. Look for a mental health professional in your area. Change your routine, Focus on the task at hand. Instead of mindlessly doing something, take the time to do something meaningful.
We have heard that now a lot of people have started following you?
All credit goes to the media who has covered me and my earlier interviews. My thought process and my intentions towards my country got a platform through Bombaynews.in and now it feels good when people are showing more love and support.
This role of being a Political Leader involves a lot of interaction with concerned citizens. Is that something you can see yourself doing on a daily basis?
It’s one of the aspects of government that I find most appealing. I have developed a set of skills that are specific to communicating with customers to find the best solutions while keeping them calm and making sure they feel heard. Also i believe, I am good listener, so I listen to all people and try to solve their problems as soon as possible. I have always been a people person and i feel that can help me in interacting efficiently with citizens as a young political leader.

Jignesh further shared with Bombaynews.in- “I believe we all are meant for to serve the people and Nation. I appeal to all people that everyone has to spend 1 hour daily for social things on every Sundays or take atleast one weekly off. If we all will do that, then only we will be able to change the society. And also thank you for your support that you all showed in my article earlier. They read and they joined for the betterment of future and respective areas. Requesting you all, please spend minimum 1-hour time every day to the society in any way whether it’s through Politics or NGO, etc. What I always believe is that “હારનાર તે છે જે લડ્યા નથી ” or to convert in Hindi “Haara Vohi Jo Lada Nahi“
