Sharat grew up in Dayton, OH. He graduated from an ivy league university and was working on Wall Street. You might think that he had it made. But Sharat was not satisfied, and prayed to be free, free to serve, free to love. Our God led him to the Basin Farm in Bellows Falls, Vermont, thinking that God's people would be on farms, if they existed. He also visited the Yellow Deli in Vista, California. He found his people, and the purpose he was created for.
