Work

My core areas of interest are working on the resolving the access issues in difficult areas. Creating access to basic infrastructures/ resources, like electricity, drinking water, access to people’s fundamental and human rights, and access to Right to Free and Compulsory Education.

Recent  work was with the Lanjia Saura tribal community in a an extremely remote village Suaba towards creating access to education and electricity.

Below articles have tried to cover a glimpse of my work in Odisha:

Currently, as part of the Teach for India Fellowship, I am working as a full time teacher in a Government school, which caters to a slum area in Mumbai. I am trying to understand the day to day struggles of a government school teacher by being a direct participant, how policies fail at the level of implementation and how a public school as an institution works.
