Shaunak is an idealist at heart. He believes that if everyone is to work together for a common aim of goodness, then the world can genuinely become a better place. Empathy and understanding are two values that mean the most to him, and his quest is to find solutions to any problem through these.
After completing his degree he went on to pursue internships with Teach For India, Deutsche Bank and a management consultancy. The work at I-PAC entailed travel and on ground work, which expanded his horizons about India, giving him a practical knowledge of real-time governance and different political campaigns.
Shaunak loves acting and theatre, having directed and acted in many college plays and participated in competitions. He can have conversations for hours about movies, books, football, philosophy, various thinkers’ works, psychology and all kinds of ‘big talk’. He confesses to having watched Pulp Fiction eight times!
With the Young India Fellowship, Shaunak hopes to find a true calling in life. The exposure to multiple disciplines will enable him to decide on a unique and meaningful pursuit. Something that brings about fulfilment for him and positively impacts as many as possible.
