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 – I 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.
