Goals in mind for Rishikul Education Society
I established the Rishikul Education Society in 2008, an educational NGO to promote education among youth and farmers in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh. I also started a Hindi Weekly newspaper called Jai Hind Times in 2009 dedicated to youth and entrepreneurship to support the vision of Rishikul Education Society in a rural area.
Going ahead in 2012, I started Kaushambi Kisaan Vani (KKV) in my hometown with farmers as a center for exploring better market opportunities for them. KKV still needs to be organized in a better way to achieve its objectives. I also have a strong interest to learn Indian Scriptures like Shrimad Bhagavad-Gita and to find out a solution for different human problems.
Suggestions for the youth
Work while working, play while playing because Life is Good.
