ABOUT MYSELF

For over a decade, I have been passionately working for "Effective Parenting & Exam stress management" benefiting 25,000 parents and students through lectures and workshops in leading schools and classes in Thane and Mumbai, guiding parents and students helping them handle exam fear/stress.

Looking at the rising rate of depression and suicides in students battling fear and stress of exams, I chose to work for students in Stds. 8 – 12 appearing for Std. 10 and Std. 12 board exams and competitive exams, to help them bring attitudinal change and handle stress effectively.

Observing that from low socioeconomic to high elite class, the problems of parenting remain the same, I took up this social cause for guidance workshops on "Effective parenting and Academic stress management" for Std. 10-12 board appearing students and their parents. I also undertook teachers training programs to sensitize teachers to the emotional challenges of adolescents and behavioral red flags to identify students going into depression.

My articles addressing problems related to adolescence were published in a regular column in The Times of India in their student edition, NIE. The column ran for more than 6 months and was extremely well appreciated especially in ICSE and CBSE schools of Mumbai, where the cutouts of columns written by me were displayed on notice boards for the benefit of parents and students, and teachers as well.

I have been invited to many schools as Chief Guest, Guest of Honour for Annual Days, Independence Day and my speeches have been appreciated by audiences running in thousands.

Through Rotary International and International Inner Wheel Associations, I have worked for underprivileged students in the interiors of Maharashtra. As Literacy Chairman of International Inner Wheel Club – Thane chapter, I worked with a team of committed members for educational uplifment of adiwasi students through the concept of 'fun & learn', introduced computer literacy, reduced school dropout rates and helped make a 'Happy School'.

Improving parent-child relations, empowering students to be confident and stress-free especially during board and competitive examinations has been the key focus area of my social work.

Reaching a milestone of 25,000 students and parents this year is the culmination of my journey in "service to humanity" and gives me immense satisfaction. I believe, "Even if you are able to change the course of one life for the better, our life becomes worth living a million times."
