What do we do with all the information we acquire? Does it all make our lives better? Are we truly wise? Listen to Saroj Thakur talk about what to do with ALL the information at our finger tips in order to become truly knowledgeable and wise through a process of introspective self learning.

Shimla’s own, Saroj Thakur realised while trekking through the Himalayas that there was elusive wisdom to be found among what we consider ‘common’ folk!

She realised that wisdom lies in taking small steps in whatever manner we can using very basic common sense to make the world a better place to live in, leaving behind trails that others may follow.

A fellow at IIAS Shimla (2009-2010) , she has been teaching at National Institute of Technology for the past 29 yrs and shares her writings and blogs on topics that matter to her the most from her home in Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh.
