He lives with his wife Saraswathi and son Tharun in Hamilton, Ontario. He is a trustee of PFplus.org â€“ Princeton Foundation for Peace and Learning.
What he admires about PFI â€“ People For India is their operational efficiency and superlative communications of the state of affairs in â€œreal-timeâ€ to 360 degrees of its stakeholders â€“ internal staff and volunteers, donors, supporting community authorities, beneficiaries of its programs and the public at large. This is a non trivial accomplishment given the scale of 500+ schools under its wing and geographically dispersed remote locations.
His vision for the joint collaboration between PFI and PFplus is to enable the following: PFI to offer their values education / public speaking and critical school infrastructure build. PFplus to implement their holistic educational, food growing and health camp initiatives to benefit the mothers and households of the school children by using the school yard and premises.
One of his favorite quotation â€œ Iâ€™ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. Iâ€™ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times Iâ€™ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. Iâ€™ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeedâ€ â€“Michael Jordan
