My journey as a professional is enriched with my experience from Telecom sector, and entrepreneurship experience in Telecom and education management domain. My passion was to create and run something on my own and this may be a venture or may be a product in which I can enjoy something new crated by myself. During my corporate days, it was getting de motivated because of predefined work schedule, less scope to learn in that defined job description.

The whole journey in Lakshya is very challenging for mentoring rural youth , managing and developing content specific to rural culture , price , language barrier etc . It is great learning for me while extending my services to community. My second venture is www.embracetheleadership.com it is an IT and education research consultancy .
