Born and brought up in Suryapet, Telangana, Mukhesh has always been interested in learning new things. Having lived in a small town for many years, he believes that nothing can beat the hometown’s good vibes in its festivities, seasons, and life. JEE coaching in Hyderabad opened him up to the realities of life, joys, and pains. Joining NIT Trichy’s Mechanical Engineering Department, he vowed to explore to broaden his world view. While at college, opting for Humanities minors was a life-changing experience for him. He began exploring disciplines such as philosophy and literature, which answered questions he had been dabbling with. The curiosity of exploring subjects that he had not the chance to explore brought him to the YIF programme which is why he looks at YIF as an end in itself. Mukhesh enjoys reading philosophy, music, sky gazing, watching and playing cricket. He has been trying his hand in writing for a while. In his free time, he takes long walks into the woods to enjoy the beauty and life nature holds.
