An IIT Bombay 2006 graduate, a popular teacher and mentor for over a decade, an entrepreneur, a film director and a Bollywood script writer – a single person, he is deeply concerned about the pressures an Indian student has to go through, of which peer pressure is one. Peer pressure is defined as an influence on a peer group, observers or individual exert that encourages others to change their lives, values or behaviours to conform to groups. Unfortunately peer pressure cannot be quantified but its impact can be studied by observing a student, where it tends to shape up his entire future. Students who when entered a system were all unique are converted to copies of their seniors and colleagues. When they are not able to handle it, they end up taking extreme steps, often committing suicide eventually.

His talk focuses on handling peer pressure in a unique way and hopes to help students recognize and respect their uniqueness.
