I am an ordinary teacher working towards the goal of foundational literacy. I run a social enterprise which develops structured learning kits to help students and educators. All my endeavours are aimed at children devoid of quality education.
My typical day revolves around developing curriculum and mentoring teachers. I am also in a state of dilemma trying to figure out a sustainable model which is driven by quality & accountability and not by sympathy & nobility. I have tried to articulate my views on this issue in one of my LI articles.
I moved to fundamental education after 20+ years of working in the corporate sector. Currently, I am happily working with more than 300 village learning centres and govt primary schools across Haryana, Uttarakhand, UP and Madhya Pradesh.

Head Interventional Neurologist | US trained Neurologist | Author
Dr. Chandril Chugh, MD
🇮🇳 South Delhi, India
Dr Chandril Chugh is a US- trained neurologist, specializing in minimally invasive brain procedures with 16 years of experience. He is skilled in endovascular surgical neuroradiology, a coveted medical super-specialty that has revolutionized patient care by eliminating the need for open brain surgery.
Dr Chugh believes that doctor’s role is not limited to treating sick patients. A doctor has much more to offer to the society in terms of promoting wellness, healthy habits, awareness about mental health, dealing with death and disability. A doctor, having been through the tough and exhaustive grind of academics, professional practice and emotional turmoils of the diseased and their families can be a guide to people in dealing with hardships of life and motivate them to have a new beginning every day. A doctor can teach the balance between work, life and the living. As doctors we need to evolve into a new breed of experts who are not just care providers for the sick rather life coaches for the people around them as well.
Dr Chugh completed his MBBS degree from the University College of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, where he graduated as a Gold Medalist. Later, he shifted to the USA and trained at the Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. Afterwards, he moved to the University of Pennsylvania for further specialization in Neurocritical Care, followed by training in Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology at Texas Stroke Institute in Texas, USA. After more than a decade long stint in the US, he moved back to India. At present he practices at Max Hospital, Saket as Head of Department of Interventional Neurology.

I, Tanya Singh, am a first year Biotechnology student at Jamia Hamdard University, New Delhi in India. I completed my bachelors in Zoology Hons from University of Delhi finishing in top 5% of my class. Being an academically exceptional student from my elementary level, I also received a state honorary scholarship for my academic excellence.
Among my many research projects with AIIMS India, UC Berkeley and Michigan State University, I most recently contributed to a book dedicated to Nanoparticles and drug delivery
systems under the guidance of Dr. Castro which has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
I had also contributed briefly to a neurotech startup as a Research Executive and had guided their research ideology with strong implementation of practicality in the real world. The various projects and numerous collaborations have not just helped me in getting the required knowledge but also the targeted experience which has thus helped me in enhancing my multifaceted domain.
The local sustainable impacts of my work, aligned with great mentorship and my insatiable curiosity to continue the understanding of critical global issues have all played a pivotal role in directing my career path. It is my life’s mission to make sure that each and every research prospect I come across is also an instrument that serves the society and has applications in the real world that help benefit the ones who benefit the least.
Though science and research have been my driving force in life, my passions are also expressed beyond the realms of microscope with music, art and exploring the worlds with Karenina and Hardy.
