#14: India: World’s Fellowship Capital

Play episode

“…Fellowships at their core are just about that — people development. How do you develop people while also solving some other short term problem statement… ”

Meet Aditya Mallya, the City Director for Mumbai at Teach for India (TFI). He has been serving at TFI since 2016. But before that he was a chemical engineer from NIT Jalandhar, worked in ITC FMCG manufacturing, then went on to finish his MBA from ISB Hyderabad and ended up becoming a consultant at Deloitte for almost 3 years. But curiosity and an urgent need to create impact, especially in education, drew him towards TFI.

Aditya and I are close friends from our college days where we co-founded the institute’s first student newsletter. We share a love for learning, reading, writing and, curiously speaking. It is serendipitous that we both ended up in the education sector and a lot of common areas of interest in the development sector.
