Could you provide a summary of your professional history and experiences? What drives you in your daily activities?

Growing up in a middle-class family in Mumbai with limited facilities, my caretakers frequently advised me on areas for improvement, which I found irritating. Determined to carve my path, a pivotal moment came when I saved five girls from drowning at Malpe Beach, drastically altering my perspective. This incident, along with the financial disparities highlighted when I needed a loan for college in Manipal - where my monthly expenses matched what my peers spent in a weekend - underscored my challenges.

Inspired by historical figures like Gandhi, whose life changed after a single incident, and Dr. Kurian, who defied doubts about his engineering background to pioneer milk production, I realized the profound impact one individual can have. This inspiration led to the founding of my organization, Buoyancee, named to reflect resilience and the ability to bounce back, embodying the lessons learned from over coming personal and socioeconomic challenges.
Please outline the unique opportunities at Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Karnataka, and how your campus experiences surpassed academics.

My time at Manipal was transformative, primarily due to the exposure it offered. Initially, I faced challenges, but soon realized the value of investing my time in interactions with people and participating in various clubs on campus. Overcoming my fear of public speaking was a significant milestone, thanks to the personal guidance of Manipal Jaycees, which played a pivotal role in changing my life. This experience inspired me to pledge to pay it forward and help others in similar ways. As I actively engaged in college activities, I discovered my talents, interests, and potential, which I now advocate as essential components for success. I emphasize the importance of tapping into one's inner qualities rather than solely pursuing knowledge, as true fulfilment comes from holistic well-being and meaningful career paths.

Encouraged by my journey, I've witnessed individuals like my tea boy and attender achieve remarkable success through empowerment and resourcefulness. I believe society often conditions us to settle for mediocrity, but by embracing our unique strengths and instincts, we can defy expectations and unlock our full potential. Through my experiences, I've developed a keen ability to understand people and tailor my approach to meet their needs, a skill that has proven invaluable in my work of helping others realize their potential and achieve personal fulfilment.

My mission is to empower individuals to take control of their minds, irrespective of their age

What is Buoyancee's organizational identity, and where does it currently stand within the market?

Initially doubted due to my pharmacy background, parents hesitated to trust me with their children's empowerment. We proved ourselves at a school where our children studied. The principal provided slum children for a demonstration of our impact. Sister Maria Sheila of Carmel Convent School entrusted us, leading to notable transformations, recognized in the Indian Express as 'Miraculous Transformations.' This success spurred further growth, as our commitment to instilling leadership qualities and overcoming societal conditioning resonated with many.
Our philosophy of empowerment and resilience, encapsulated in the name 'Buoyancee,' reflects our belief in the innate leadership potential within every individual, guiding them to rise above challenges and excel. Buoyancee will launch Resurge India on May 13th, targeting teenagers, youth, college staff, companies, and banks to unlock individual potential. The focus is on internal faculties and personal development beyond IQ and logic. With over thirty years of experience, Buoyancee aims to guide self-discovery and growth, supported by several companies.

Can you highlight some significant setbacks or challenges you faced, and how did you navigate through them?

My family stood by me during the toughest times. My children were understanding, even when we couldn't afford necessities like school uniforms or groceries. It was challenging, with moments like my daughter's embarrassment when her name was called out for unpaid fees. Despite the hardships, my wife remained resilient, selling whatever she could to make ends meet. Our parents supported us too, despite their financial constraints. Looking back, I realize that people crave transformative experiences, which is what we strive to deliver at Buoyancee. We believe everyone has untapped potential. Our programs ignite this potential, akin to working with neuro transmitters like dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins, fostering positive change and self-worth.

What approach do you take to provide tailored services to your clients?

I've come to realize that my work revolves around understanding and influencing people's minds, regardless of their age. The concept of 'Osho' or the clay pot analogy underscores the importance of trusting one's inner power. It's fascinating to see participants ranging from teenagers to corporate CEOs attending my classes and finding value in the discussions. Regardless of age, the underlying principles remain stimulating and relevant. Just as I found myself learning Kannada alongside primary school students at the age of 48, the essence of what I teach transcends age barriers.
