Since a couple of years, Aseem has taken up this special project to guide and mentor the students and youth from the Border states of India through interaction with coeval students as well as experienced and successful people from the rest of the country.

Students from the farthest regions like Jammu Kashmir, North Eastern area of the country and various remote places of India have lots of potential yet the right approach towards choosing the career for their bright future is lacking. In tandem with this observation, Aseem came up with the idea of Abhilasha - an initiative to provide career guidance though video conferencing so as to remove the barrier of geographical distance and reach as many schools and students of different region as possible to nourish them with proper guidance to groom their future.

Through Abhilasha, students and teachers from various regions can interact directly with experts and acquire knowledge. We host one session each month in which the participating students are introduced to various career options and success path towards them. This activity is conducted on a Saturday morning of almost every Month. This approach helps students overcome distance barrier and explore the best in them. We would be happy to involve any schools interested in this project.

What you need to participate in these sessions:
A PC or a laptop, speakers and broadband internet connection. (A web Camera is optional but recommended)
Mobile phone with loud speaker facility

Going a step further the concept of E/tele-mentorship has been developed so that a closer connection can be created between students from these regions and other successful people from other regions of India which can help the students get detailed guidance regarding various types of exposures and opportunities at a greater comfort level.
