Education: TISS, Mumbai
Last Employer: Prime Minister's Rural Development Fellow
I am a gold medallist in MBA in Rural Management from Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University and also have am MA from TISS, Mumbai in Development Practice.
I have previously worked as a Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellow under Ministry of Rural Development, GoI in one of the most backward districts of the country, to facilitate public service delivery to the marginalized and vulnerable sections of the community. I have also worked in the capacity of Project Fellow in a UGC funded major research project titled ‘‘The Social, Ecological and Environmental Matrix in Rural -Urban Interface:A Sociological study of Peri-urban Lucknow’ in BBA University, Lucknow.
My motivation to be an AD Fellow was to contribute towards galvanising the system and leverage the potential of the people to usher in an era of people led, state supported mass movement to achieve inclusive, just and equitable social and economic development to realise the aspirations of the people in a hitherto unattended area.
