“Humanity & Human Actions are paramount to everything else”.
It's because of this belief that I've decided to bring in new ideologies and new ways of thinking and work towards building a progressive society with noble-spirited citizens.
I firmly believe in the concept of “Democracy as is” i.e. without any fabrication or dilution to the process (or) the idea. I believe that Citizen activism paves way for best societies and best societies pave way for best nations. I would like to facilitate the change directly at an individual level by making citizens a part of law-making and giving them tools to empower themselves, and, in the process, strengthen our society and our nation.
I primarily draw my inspiration from Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee & Bharat Ratna Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for their vision towards India, the Indian society and the capacity of us (Indians) to inspire the entire human race towards peace, progress & prosperity. Being a millennial, I belonged to the time when i took immense pride in saying that Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was my Prime Minister and Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was my President.
Irrespective of our beliefs, faiths, ideas, opinions and affiliations (political or otherwise), we should stand and work together and accomplish the vision they had for a Super India.
It was because of these two legends that I've decided to serve this nation through political action and reforms in administration and order of governance but I was unsure about the ways and means of realizing it during my school and college days.
I was born on the 1st of December, 1993 in Nallakunta, Hyderabad. As any other child, I spent a lot of my childhood listening to the stories of Sri Ramayana, Srimad Bhagavatam and other puranas and itihasas from my parents Shri Chirravuri Siva Rama Sastry garu & Srimati Chirravuri Sri Lakshmi garu and moral stories from my maternal grandfather Shri Parimi Adi Narayana Sarma garu.
Apart from these were the usual cartoons and comic books which I enjoyed thoroughly. Nevertheless, those stories had a profound impact on me.
With the encouragement and blessings of my parents, I completed my primary education from Neochem Public School and my secondary education from Sri Gurudatta High School (both schools based out of Nallakunta). As a child I used to enjoy all subjects, but, as I got into my secondary school I developed a special interest towards Sciences (Physics in particular).
Later on I took M.P.C in my intermediate at Vijaya Ratna Junior College and focused on cracking the prestigious IIT-JEE (just like most of the other ambitious students back then). I failed to crack the exam but was satisfied with the knowledge and analytical capabilities I've acquired in the process.
Subsequently I got an admission into engineering and completed my B. Tech in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from Gokaraju Rangaraju Institute of Engineering & Technology (GRIET) – Hyderabad.
In 2017, I secured an admission into M.A. Political Science at Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) – New Delhi and completed my postgrad in 2019.
In 2014, during my undergrad, I got placed at Trianz Holdings Pvt. Ltd. (a multi-national IT services company headquartered at Santa Clara, California, USA) and worked for them as a Software Quality Analyst for 2 years in Hyderabad. In 2017 I left Trianz to pursue my passion.
In 2018, I got an opportunity to work with Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC India) where I worked on a live research project for a sitting Member of Parliament of 16th Lok Sabha. During this brief stint with YLAC, I learnt about various key elements and aspects of public policy.
Later that year, I got an opportunity to pursue my research internship at Foundation for Democratic Reforms (FDR India) headed by the most-revered Politician, a Statesman and a Visionary Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan garu. At FDR, i got to learn about public policy, advocacy, political, electoral & democratic reforms. This research internship has taught me more than what I've learned during all my previous years combined and I am working on executing some of my ideas towards social & political change.
