At the peak of his career, he decided to return from the US. “It was a meeting with Arvind Gupta, an inventor and author who designed educational toys, that changed the course of my life. He was also my senior at IIT Kanpur. at IUCAA’s Science Centre in Pune, he taught me how everyday objects could be used to explain scientific concept. I decided to devote myself completely to the cause,” he says.

 

What prompted him to choose his specific initiative was the dismal performance of Indian children in the international arena.

“Children grasp theory well, but when questions are tweaked, they struggle to find solutions. I decided to make science and maths intriguing for them to make them want to attend the classes and not run away from them,” he says.
