From early on, Srikant has been socially conscious. This has made him take numerous initiatives in the social sector particularly working with underprivileged children. When he was in college, this social concern took him to the north-east of India. He worked in Bodoland as part of a riot relief project, an area where identity, development and religious issues were intricately woven. He believes this was a life altering experience for him.
At Kirori Mal College, University of Delhi, Srikant studied economics, which he learnt to appreciate and eventually master with the help of some exceptional teachers. His mentor was Professor Saumyajit Bhattacharya, to whom he owes his academic success and the understanding of a more rooted and relevant outlook of economics, economics that is written with both hands, not with ‘on the one hand and on the other’. After his under-graduation he pursued the Young India Fellowship, where he had an exposure to a plethora of subjects and fields.
Srikant is a keen footballer and enjoys watching as well as playing the sport. Alongside this he enjoys long distance running and hiking in the Himalayas.
An avid traveler, Srikant is always on the lookout for new places to explore, new people to meet and new experiences. He is excited to be working at Dimagi, as a Field Manager. He hopes to learn more and make a meaningful impact as he goes forward.
