I did my primary education in ZP School in my home town Ranjani in Kavathe-Mahankal. Kavathe-Mahankal is famous for Mahankali Devi temple & Mallikarjun (God Shiva Temple). There is an old and well known sugar factory, Mahankali Sugar Factory which is named named after the same Goddess. Kavathe mahankal is peaceful town. Major festival observed is Shivratri and Navratri (Dasara). Durng Shivratri there is five days "Yatra" (Fair) in Town & Navratri (Dasara) in Mahankali Temple (Ambabai mandir). Kavathe-Mahankal is also known for yield of grapes, sugar-cane, jawar, bajary and maize. There are two industrial training schools, a ZP Primary School, Shree Mahankali High School, PVP college of Art, Commerce, Science. So all together it is complete world in itself.
The pleasing countryside atmosphere of Ranjani still has it's great effect on me even after 25 years. It still keeps me healing from inside while running in the breathtaking rush of Mumbai City.
Later I did my high school education in Medshingi and Shantiniketan school at Sangli.
Shantiniketan School is surrounded by greenery and has pleasant atmosphere. It was founded by Mr. P. B. Patil in 1952. He knew the importance of formal and non formal Education and thus along with a band of young students, who were themselves first generation learners, in Rajaram College Kolhapur, organised a Hostel for School Students coming from villages, in 1952 at Islampur. The young students, after completing their higher education, decided, not to join any Govt. Service or Services at other places, but devote themselves to the cause of Education and Rural Development, and organised this education institution, named as Navbharat Shikshan Mandal. Many great people in Maharashtra are bought up and studied in Shantiniketan. And have been through it's "Earn & Learn" scheme. True vision of Mr. P. B. Patil and legendary support of Vasantdada Patil have enlightened future of many students and their families.
Today that small school and hostel of 1950's has grown like a huge tree; serving various educational needs of society. I feel proud to be part of Shantiniketan and values I got there still inspire me.
Then I did my graduation in Political Science & Administration from Bharti Vidyapeeth, Sangli.
Institute of Management and Rural Development Administration, Sangli, was established in year 1994, with the aim of imparting high class management and computer education to the students of this region. The Institute is approved by AICTE New Delhi and Maharashtra State Government. The institute has been brought under the ambit of Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University Pune from the academic year 2005-06.The motto of this Institute is "Social transformation through dynamic education."
The practical approach of education in this institute taught me more than books and it is helping me in my professional endeavour.
Finally as higher education I did my M.B.A. in Marketing at Shivaji University, Kolhapur.
Shivaji University was established in 1962, is located in Kolhapur, Maharashtra. It is spread over a sprawling campus of 853 acres. The University is named after the Great Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, founder of the Maratha Empire. It was inaugurated on 18 November 1962 by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the then President of India. Yashwantrao Chavan and Balasaheb Desai took the lead in establishing this University. Kolhapur, Sangli, and Satara come under its jurisdiction with 271 affiliated colleges and recognised institutes. One of the major objectives behind foundation of this University was to cater to the regional education needs of South Maharashtra. This region of Maharashtra boasts of rich and varied socio-cultural heritage. Under the innovative and socially reformist leadership of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj, the princely ruler of Kolhapur, the city had become at the beginning of this century, a focal point of educational opportunities for all classes and communities of South-Western Maharashtra, and northern parts of neighbouring Karnataka. This is also land of Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil, who struggled for taking education to the masses by his innovative 'Earn and Learn' scheme. When the University was founded by the Shivaji University Act of 1962, the objectives set before the University included making opportunities of higher education accessible to rural youth, conducting fundamental and applied research in the field of science and humanities to ensure regional growth and development.
The values and vision of the founders of the university are still being followed today. And thus education at Shivaji University has led me way ahead than I would have been otherwise.
Later I became certified AdWords Professional in Google Inc.
Working with an American multinational corporation; Google Inc, specializing in Internet-related services and products was greatest milestone of my professional journey. Their services include search, cloud computing, software, and online advertising technologies and most of their profits are derived from AdWords. Google Adwords Certification is a Google AdWords partner certification program, providing AdWords qualifications to agencies that pass exams (AdWords exam i.e. Fundamental, and either Search Advanced or Display Advanced exam) and other criteria.
During this job I used to meet a lot of people like business owners, staff members, and technical heads from different domains of various industries. So this job gave me knowledge, exposure and my main asset, connections with people. I learned how people and their relations work for any business and its goodwill.
Today more than anything my business runs on the strength of people that I have been connected with!
