What do you do at Madhi?
I work at the intersection of all the supporting verticals with the Organisational Development vertical on the operational front and also as a thought partner for the CEO on striving to make Madhi a purposeful and enabling space for all.

Why do you do what you do?
I love nurturing spaces for people on a mission to bring out the best version of themselves and that is very fulfilling for me.

What is the lamest joke you have heard a team member crack?
This is not quite a joke, but our daily conversations with the tea vendor always reveal some interesting new information. For instance, did you know that cloud seeding was done in Chennai in 1980 to create artificial rain?

What is your favourite memory with the team?
We volunteered with the Government of Tamil Nadu to assist the Unified Command Center (UCC) during the Covid second wave. In a very short span of time, the team rallied quickly to support UCC. When volunteers described their experiences on how they were able to help people is my favorite memory with the team.

Why do you do what you do?
I believe that foundational learning is a key building block for removing social inequity and one of the most effective means to eliminate poverty.

What is the lamest joke you have heard a team member crack?
Someone said, “Let’s go watch Darbar” (The Rajnikanth movie). I thought they were referring to a classical music concert.

What is your favourite memory with the team?
I really enjoyed watching everybody make a fool of themselves during a mini-theatre exercise at one of our monthly meetings. All the plays were so hilarious and yet quite meaningful.

What do you do at Madhi?
Senior Manager, Curriculum Design & Learning. I create teacher development curriculum and content.

Why do you do what you do?
After working in the corporate sector, and then as a teacher and an assistant school leader, I really wanted to join an organisation that worked with curriculum improvement in schools, and had a warm and engaging team culture.

What is the lamest joke you have heard a team member crack?
Anticipating the usual queries, a colleague once answered a call from her Ola cab driver with, “Hello! Naa cash pesare!” (Translation: “Hello! I am cash speaking.”)

What is your favourite memory with the team?
I really enjoy the unique flavour Madhi brings to any occasion. Be it birthdays, weddings, or traditional festivals.
