I am an Engineer who has served as an ASSISTANT COMMANDER in ITBP (Indo Tibetan Border Police),wrote UPSC mains (4 years), and turned into a social entrepreneur.
I have also worked with several NGOs - SOREM ( Society for rehabilitation of mentally challenged), special schools, Rotaract clubs for FUND RAISING for Kerala, Kashmir and Chennai floods.
I have volunteered for JAN SHIKSHA SANSTHAN (an MHRD initiative) aimed at spreading education amongst the underprivileged. I interacted with people of different age groups (from class 8th to 2nd year BA students), all within the same room. My efforts increased passing percentage from 20% to 35%.
Currently I have enrolled for a 2 year RURAL MANAGEMENT programme at IRMA,Gujarat.
Something about Jagriti Yatra:
How can the yatra be a game changer:
I came to know about the yatra through a former “yatri”, who had witnessed a dramatic change in his personality after the journey. I listened to him in great details about the learning experiences during the interactions with other yatris and role models.
The BOGIE DEBATES ranging on a wide variety of issues, with new ideas coming in from diverse minds, exchanging of FIRST HAND PRACTICAL EXPERIENCES about bringing a social change, inspiring TALKS WITH THE ROLE MODELS, forging EVER LASTING CONTACTS with like-minded people who wish to bring a change, all ignite a spark to be a part of the tremendous journey.
As Gandhiji said, the Real India resides in her villages. Through the yatra I wish to travel through the length and breadth of the country, meet people from all walks of life with different socio-economic-cultural perspectives, experience the ground realities, and visualize the opportunities that hold potential for a better India. Simply, it provides an opportunity for self-realisation.
And especially after COVID-19 lockdown and subsequent crisis, Jagriti yatra provides exchange of ENTREPRENEURIAL IDEAS to create livelihood opportunities across Rural India, the Bharat.
Personally, I haven't added financially to the family income pool as of now. And my family has already invested a lot in my education (Engineering fees) along with a 4 year investment for UPSC preparation (the years when they were rather expecting me to earn).
And since I am further planning for a 2 year course in rural management at IRMA, I would rather be needing education loan (without collateral) to the tune of 15 lakhs.
So, I would not want to add another burden of the yatra cost at this time, and humbly request to raise a sponsor so I take home the immense learning and add my little contribution to the Yatra and Society.
Thanks a lot for your time. Really appreciate your invaluable contribution.
