Simran Singh (IIT Delhi Graduate/SBI Youth for India Fellow) loves his country and wants to make a difference in rural India

Simran Singh GroverSimran Singh Grover graduated from IIT-Delhi with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering. He previously worked in an off-shore oil company in Dubai. He quit this job to start his own company called Octave Simulations and Services with a few of his batchmates, a firm that provides users with software simulations. Simran heard about the SBI Youth for India Fellowship programme via a friend. He immediately knew that he wanted to apply. “I love my country,” he says with a smile, “and the majority of India is rural. I hope that I will get to know my country better with this programme.”

Simran will be joining Seva Mandir, an NGO that works for the development of rural and tribal populations in the Udaipur and Rajsamand districts of Rajasthan. He is interested in projects related to renewable energy and cluster development. Simran sees himself more as an assistant to the dreams of others rather than the creator of dreams. “The dreams are already there. They just need someone to help them. I’m here to do just that – and hopefully learn along the way.”

Simran has found the SBI Youth for India orientation programme interesting and inspiring. Interacting and learning from people with so much experience in social development work has been very fulfilling for him. He is hoping to learn as much as he can over the next year, which he can later apply to a venture he hopes to start in the renewable energy sector.

Simran is not at all apprehensive about going to rural India. “I’m not scared at all. What makes you do anything in life? The pursuit of happiness. I believe this will make me happy.”
