Adhik Kadam has kidnapped by militants in Kashmir 19 times, survived a bomb blast and faced guns on a number of occasions. Adhik's journey began when in college, being a student of Political Science his curious mind made him investigate about Act Article 370 in the constitution. His curiousness lead to him to his first visit to Jammu in 1997 which was followed by his first report on the topic. In 1998 his interest on this subject was shared by Bhasati Mamani and together they founded the Borderless World Foundation (BWF).
Their first hand experience of the human tragedy made them aware of the fact that the people of a nation often do not realise that their border areas function as the 'shock absorbers' of the country, and that life for the people in these areas is far from normal - it's full of uncertainty. Girls as young as three who had been orphaned during militancy stayed together at three rented homes at Kupwara, Badgam and Anantnag districts. Adik Kadam keeps travelling back to Pune to collect donations to run the home which provides a 'human touch' to the border areas.
