  • Being an educator and researcher, academic journey of Dr Richa Baghel started with a university summer project, where she was not aware of how deep it would leave its impact on her. After completing a PhD in management, she realised that the thesis is published, but the quest for research is continuing.
  • Keen interest in individual mind and management routed her to Vedic philosophies. The duo of modern management and Vedic philosophies is opening a new arena of learning and knowing the unknown. Practical learning is the one thing which counts. It is about how you get to know yourself rather than how you know the subject.
