The Unfolding of Journey at ‘India CSR Centre’
A musician by birth and a mechanical engineer by education, I was brought up in a family of lawyers and hence social values have always had a special place. Over time, the social inequalities gave me an adrenalin rush and I developed a mental framework to tackle the issues.
I have been involved in a few social initiatives by intertwining music and through activities at my Alma Mater ‘M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology’, Bangalore. From then society became an indispensable part of my career.
The year 2013, saw me take a plunge from a job at a manufacturing industry to Asia’s first ever MBA in CSR, constituted at CSR-Centre of Excellence, Mysore. This year also saw me taking a decision to travel across my home country, India.
It then occurred to me that the development sector needs a huge revival for India to be in the cutting edge. With the Companies Act of 2013, mandating CSR as a law, I have been involving with a host of companies and NGO’s who are betting big on changing the face of India. Among the many discussions with the experts, I felt the growing need of an entity to bridge the gap for Corporates since ‘Development Sector’ per se has not been their core competency. This thought dwelt in my mind for several months and the result is this organization which is exclusively to connect the corporates, NGO’s, philanthropists, and the likeminded people.
Presenting to you the “India CSR Centre” which is mandated to help companies decide on their CSR activities and help them execute efficiently. I hereby, invite all the Corporate Houses, NGOs, Philanthropists, and the likeminded people to be a part of this incredible journey and join us in making India a future we all want to see.
