About me

Gender MALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation social activism
Location Nagpur, Maharashtra
Introduction A social activist interested in Collectivism. My wife Rajeswari (more courageous than me) is a practicing Hindu. My mother doesn't think I am a Christian, for my practice does not fit into her frame of Christian faith. This spirit of universal faith is, however, I imbibed from my father. Studied 'Peace Making' in M K U. Researched in Social Conflict at Peace Research Centre, Gujarat Vidyapith. I like Gandhi's pragmatic idealism which Jesus Christ and of late Vivekananda endorsed with their action. I Believe in Collective salvation, as individual is not an entity but 'inter-relatedly caused' (as my teacher Ravindra Varma put it). A knot in a web can not rise in its stature when the adjoining knots are lying flat. I cannot claim sole propriety over my achievement (including my wisdom or spiritual elevation) because I could achieve them all only with the help of my neighbours. My beautiful child Ameeta (‘Eternal Friendship’) 5th Std, very intelligent and imaginative, more brilliant then I was in her age. She is elated when I say this. I enjoy my family life. We three are so attuned that I can read my wife’s pulse (and also her impulse).
