Introducing Dr. Motivation
What motivated you start volunteering for children?
Post my near fatal accident in 2010, I had turned into a different person. I started looking out for the ‘purpose’ in everything I used to do. During my period as an observer at Apollo Hospitals, I had met many children as patients who continue to inspire me. I also started to volunteer for Pulse Polio campaigns later. Thus, I credit children for inspiring me to go beyond ‘just living’ to a ‘purposeful living’.
What are the major topics you teach children at Govt schools?
What would you advise youngsters who are looking to do something similar?
I would suggest them to discuss their future plans / goals openly with their family first. Serving the community requires passion and a real motive which has to be accepted by family members too. It is important because they would be impacting the lives of many individuals.

- Awarded above 20 certificates of Merit & Appreciation (includes BITS Pilani & IIT Madras).
How does it feel to get awards and medals?
I express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has praised my passion in the form of an award/acknowledgement. I take it as an encouragement.
What is your Daily Routine?
I usually get-up early morning, I make sure I read the newspaper daily. These are two things which I have been following since the past fourteen years. Daily routine keeps changing but these two remain the same regardless of the travel or work involved.
What are your hobbies?
I have developed a habit of reading newspaper since my childhood. I also started reading various books on self-improvement and management post my accident. Once I started volunteering, I started meeting new people from various walks of life. Help yourself and help others grow in life became my hobby later.
