I completed my graduation in commerce from Osmania University, Hyderabad and then pursued an MBA. I was always a curious child and wanted to know the logic behind everything and this thirst brought me into this profession. I conduct talk shows, seminars and workshops on how to improve lifestyle through changes in the five elements around us. Numerous businesses and individuals have experienced visible results in their output with my personalized guidance. I provide services related to Vaastu, Feng shui, Astrology and Nameology.
Tell us about any current projects or initiatives you wish to promote
Well apart from my regular projects, currently I am working on the project – *Stop – idol immersion in the river’ *under the *Swach Bharat Abhiyan*. I believe and strongly advocate a very nature friendly system of carefully placing leftover of any ritualistic puja in the ground rather than a river so that rivers should be spared of all the waste! The project has been received well by many local and state level authorities.
What has been your biggest challenge in achieving your success?
Well honestly my biggest challenge has been in making people understand that any sort of change comes inside out and not outside in. So however hard I might try to explain the changes in vaastu, the person should first be confident that, yes these changes will definitely bring a change in my life.
What has been your greatest achievement personally?
I feel over the years I have been able to create a very humorous and engaging environment in my talk shows and seminars. For the reason that at times this subject becomes too bookish and people might feel they are unable to absorb the topics. But once you engage them in the conversation-that is the biggest art!
If you weren’t doing what you do now, what would you be doing?
Well, if not a Vaastu expert, I would have certainly been an explorer and traveller. I have travelled immensely across the length and breadth of the nation and abroad too.
Who has been your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration was my grandmother and my mom’s elder sister. I always saw both of them concentrating on the current work rather than wasting time on unforeseen problems.
What does the future hold for you?
I visualise myself providing that magic wand to womenfolk where they have the secrets of creating a balance outside and inside their life by applying some very basic principles of Vaastu.
