Hire me

First you dream. Then you get scared. Then you fight and suffer. Then you achieve.

Still in the 3rd stage.

I strongly believe that my life will be a case of wasted potential if I fail to create a postive impact in the society.

Having gained considerable experience in functioning of a new venture early in my career, I decided to pursue my goal and started 'Active Wings' to improve the quality of life of people.

Schools in India offer excellent scholastic education. Active Wings experiential learning progamme helped them to deliver the same quality in co-scholastic area that posed a major challenge due to limitation of resources and infrastructure.

Active Wings partnered with schools to ensure holistic education of every child by leveraging the power of sports as a tool for experiential learning.

The programme inculcated life skills, social skills, and physical education through a structured curriculum developed and tested by us.

Fast forward 2 years: Having connected with over 350 schools across Mumbai and its suburbs, it was not working out as planned due to various challenges.

Big lessons were learnt and more importantly, the first big step towards the goal was taken.

I have now joined CouponDunia - A Times Internet company in a Marketing Communication role, having spent a year with Real Estate start up Royalti as their Branch Manager.

Besides this, I was a part of LFC360 - twitter handle shortlisted for Shorty Awards and India's only finalist among the 10 best Football Social Media profiles in the world for The International Football Blogging Awards.

Have also written over 950 articles covering mostly Liverpool FC & FC Barcelona for TheHardTackle.

Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, Ayrton Senna, Bill Shankly, Muhammed Ali, Bruce Lee, Nikola Tesla and Steve Jobs, I hope to write my names in the pages of history as someone who changed the world, for good.
