Awell-known in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity leader, hu­man­i­tar­ian and phi­lan­thropist, ceo of the Giv­ing back Foun­da­tion Meera Gandhi adds two more feath­ers to her cap, with the launch a doc­u­men­tary film and a cof­fee ta­ble book both ti­tled “The Giv­ing Back” for a so­cial cause. Born in Mum­bai to an Ir­ish mother and an in­dian fa­ther, Meera was raised in in­dia and UK. She com­pleted her Mba from bos­ton Univer­sity, and then after a decade, she pur­chased the Park av­enue town­house once be­long­ing to Eleanor Roo­sevelt. She has ded­i­cated her life to char­ity work since then.

With of­fices in Hong Kong, NYC, Mum­bai and Lon­don, Meera shares her views on her 2,000 sq. ft., home in Jupiter, Florida, where she and her chil­dren en­joy spend­ing their va­ca­tions. Meera says, “The view from this house is ab­so­lutely gor­geous, it is a very mod­ern home and the whole en­ergy worked for us.” Ab­so­lutely stun­ning with glass façade, this plush ocean fac­ing home has con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture. Adding in­sight on the de­sign, Meera adds, “This home is a fu­sion of a Span­ish villa and mod­ern Amer­i­can con­tem­po­rary style ar­chi­tec­ture. The screen doors re­mind me of Saharanpur, where we used to visit my grand­mother and had a lot of fun out­doors and on the pa­tio!”

The apart­ment has four bed­rooms, with a spa­cious liv­ing room along with a swim­ming pool and deck. over­look­ing the ocean, the dream house has pri­vate steps that go down to the wa­ter­front.

be­ing an art col­lec­tor her­self, Meera has a wide col­lec­tion of paint­ings. we all have cer­tain sen­ti­ments at­tached to our per­sonal spa­ces – be it our room, some fur­ni­ture, or some ran­dom pos­ses­sion. this pretty phi­lan­thropist spends most of her time here, writ­ing her sec­ond book due for re­lease soon.

From be­ing a ded­i­cated so­cial worker to a re­spon­si­ble mother, and a beau­ti­ful hu­man be­ing, Meera Gandhi truly is a ver­sa­tile woman and their plush apart­ment is com­pletely a re­flec­tion of the peo­ple (her fam­ily) stay­ing in it!
