What inspired you to establish The Sanskaar School in Bathinda, Punjab? Community service has always been a priority for me/my family. A strong desire to improve access to education, address educational inequalities, contribute to community development, and empower the local population was somewhere at the back of mind. Inspired by my genuine belief in the transformative power of education and a commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and the entire community, inspired me to establish The Sanskaar School at Talwandi Sabo, a small town in Bathinda district. However, it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my family.
