ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Shri Mahesh Sharma is a changemaker and a visionary. Founder of the Shivganga Ashram in the tribal district of Jhabua, he came to Jhabua in 1998, and has transformed the place in the last eighteen years that he has been there. He spent his first five years traveling extensively from village to village and house to house to identify the real problems that people of Jhabua face and to be a part of their community. Then he used culture and tradition of the land to develop a sustainable model for development and to empower the tribals of Jhabua. Today, he still continues to work in Jhabua by being actively involved in the community developmental activities and working towards the betterment of the people of that region.

ABOUT THE TALK

We as IITians are at the forefront of the technological world. How can we contribute to the development of backward regions of our country? What can we do to create change and make an impact? Shri Mahesh Sharma comes to IIT Delhi to address some of these questions, to share his inspiring journey and to talk about what prompted him to work for the people of this region.
