My journey began as an Assistant Professor of English at Delhi University. I remember, sitting in the staff-room, looking at the prescribed textbooks, remembering the faces of my students and wondering how can I make my classroom interactions more life-relevant & fun for my students? I wanted our lecture to be worth their time and worth my potential.
Or, may be, the seeds of my journey were planted much before that! It goes back to when I was in school, a withdrawn backbencher. During lectures, I used to doodle myself into thinking: ‘how are these lectures useful for me?’ At other times, I took copious notes from the ‘outside the syllabus’ personal, yet life-relevant conversations that a teacher sometimes softens into sharing. That felt like real education to me, for it seemed to teach me about life and relationships.
Or may be, my journey began, when I was told that I was “too sensitive” for the “real” world.
Later, I realized that we come from a shared context of emotional neglect and suppression, where emotional literacy (recognising & understanding emotions) was not considered important. And so, I thought of creating a new space, ‘a Perfect Life Spot’ for the misfits like me; a place where one can be and belong. This unbelievably passionate need of mine, helped me create an emotionally-nourishing community, Perfect Life Spot (PLS). PLS provides life-transforming emotional-skills to students and professionals in an emotionally safe and mindfully-designed classroom. Since 2011, we have trained over 10,000 students and 150 teachers with these pedagogical techniques.
And most gratefully, it has nurtured me with skills which help me stand tall in the face of any challenge. It is all about empowerment.
I was, and I still am passionate for personal Renaissance; I am constantly seeking ways for becoming a better version of me. And, passionate about sharing these skills with you!
