Joined Teach for India (as a YPA)

The one social cause that has always been close to my heart is – education. I truly believe that a good education is the one instrument that can bridge the inequity that divides India. In a later post, I hope to share more statistical data around this idea.

I recently decided to commit my time to education at some point of my life. This decision came at an opportune moment РI got connected to some wonderful people at the Teach for India initiative. Teach for India is a new movement, which aims to remove educational inequity by bringing bright, young Indians to deliver education in underprivileged communities.

For now, I have joined TFI as a TFI Young Professional Ambassador (YPA), wherein my responsibility is to be a bridge between TFI and the industry. Excited to be a part of this Initiative.

Late night courses get you thinking…

I’ve been busy with my courses. Some pre-reqs I have to do for my masters program. One step closer to the professorship, I keep telling myself.

Truth is i’m not cut out for the industry. make some bucks, get a phd, take a 9-4 job with iisc and philosophize about life, databases and enterprise architecture.
