We are PAL, a group of learning enthusiasts who wish to present the current educational paths available for students in India so that they can make an informed decision.
Usually, choice of career or educational paths are dictated by various factors like peer pressure, parent aspirations, attraction about a particular career aspect or even limited resources that lead to choosing a particular field. Another reason is the fact that students are not being able to convince their parents about the new and emerging career fields that are available. This and many other factors lead to students making an ill-informed decision. Few realise this and take corrective measures.
At PAL (Passionate About Learning) our focus is to collate information about the various career options that are available in India, thereby helping students make an informed decision. We are focusing on various aspects like – information about a career field, counselling about students mental health and students journey after choosing a particular field. We hope to present an all rounded picture about the educational system and fields available in India to help make better career choices and happy workforce.

My aim is to empower children and adolescents through motivational speaking, to create awareness about mental health and to make an attempt to eliminate the taboo surrounding mental illnesses;especially in smaller towns and rural areas. I also enjoy teaching little children and often do so whenever I find time.
