The adage ‘Find your calling and follow your passion’ sounds very logical, but is extremely difficult to achieve in reality. I make every effort to adhere to this principe. Born in a traditional family where a degree in Engineering and foreign travel were considered commonplace, I stood my ground to choose a career in Human Resources despite family and peer pressure. Through my own experience, I advocate the need for a student to find his true identity and follow his mind, while not succumbing to external pressures – a virtue that defines one’s personality.
Who am I?
I have over 15 years of experience in the field of Human Resources (HR). I have been with Infosys Ltd for the last 15+ years and is currently the HR Business Leader for the global sales team. I hold a Post Graduate degree in Social Work (Specializing in Personnel Management & Industrial Relations) from Loyola College, Chennai.
I love interacting with students and spend most of my weekends visiting colleges and speaking to the young minds. I’ve also been a regular speaker in business conclaves such as NAASCOM, NHRD, FICCI & CII.
what i do?
Maatram meaning Change, aims to bring the collective strength of likeminded individuals who aspire to be the change catalysts in the society. Here at Maatram, we believe, the impact one can create is not by virtue of the monetary contribution alone but rather by the sheer determination to bring a change in another deserving person’s life. Maatram was conceptualized in 2013 to bring a change in the lives of most worthy children who lack the access to higher education that they thoroughly deserve through the power of networking and social media. It’s a small group of like-minded people, most of them young working professionals but is united with a common goal of bringing about change. What started as a small foundation 3 years back has more than 200 students currently pursuing higher education in some of the top universities/colleges in Tamil Nadu.
