I am serving as Principal Adviser to the Director Education, Government of Delhi. An alumnus of Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, I started my career about two decades ago with Pratham, one of the leading organisations working in the area of children’s education in India.
For the last 4 years, I have been part of the team led by the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, working to strengthen public school system in Delhi which enrolls 1.6 million children. Apart from building world class school infrastructure and high quality training to Government Teachers and Principals, we have focused on improving learning outcomes of children. Having built a strong schooling foundation, we have now introduced next generation reforms - Happiness Curriculum for our children to not only excel academically but also become better human beings and Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum to develop critical thinking and problem solving attitude among students.
