Abha SahgalI have been an educationist for 37 years and what started as an interest and profession quickly became a passion. Being with children is now as important for me as the essentials for sustenance! My journey in education started from Delhi Public School RK Puram in 1980. I taught English to age groups of 8 to 17. My students are now adults who are contributing to society and remember the days we spent together very fondly. I am especially proud of the very strong relationship I had with each class of mine. In 1995 DPS management gave me the responsibility of heading the Primary School of DPS RK Puram at Vasant Vihar. Those were the most fruitful years of my career, when I was at my creative best. We worked on a number of innovations in the pedagogy by constantly researching about the latest trends. The school during this period stood apart from others as dynamic and happening. In 2000, I left the country to start a school for DPS at Sharjah, UAE. This was the most challenging assignment of my career. I was to set up a school in a foreign land keeping in mind the local sensitivities and rules. Though a tough task, I remember this experience with a feeling of fulfilment and satisfaction. By the time I left this school in 2008, it was regarded as the top school, excelling in academic, sports and the cultural arenas. In 8 years it had grown from 180 to 4500 students! DPS Sharjah will always be a feather in my cap and I am proud of being its Founder Principal. I joined Sanskriti in 2008. The school echoed my vision and philosophy of education – that each child is unique and the purpose of education is to understand this difference and nurture each child accordingly. After my taking over as the Principal, we have embarked on new vistas and are looking forward to new excitements ahead. The school average in Class 12 Board exams has shown a marked increase consistently since 2008. I have never let the school lose sight of its vision, which is ‘’to create happy, feeling and thinking Sanskritians who will be the change makers’’. Values are the most important aspect in my school and I ensure that while academics gets its due, the children grow up as positive thinking, humane individuals. In Sanskriti I have constantly worked at empowering my teachers. There is always a stimulating atmosphere in the school encouraging teachers to add on to their expertise. Besides this, I have been able to give the teachers space to experiment and innovate.

A marathon runner, a painter, a traveler and more – she is redefining her life every day.Self Belief – My Success Mantra “I have always believed in the power of the mind – If you believe it, you can do it. The events one face in their lifetime are nothing but a reciprocation of a combination of their thoughts and actions. If you think, you believe and are determined to do something; your actions automatically work towards achieving it.”Journey as an Entrepreneur Ms. Kanika Tekriwal started her journey in the aviation industry at the age of 17. During her tenure, she has seen the industry grow and has grown with it. It is well and truly safe to assume that she has learnt more than a thing or two about the industry in this time.As her career unfolded, she saw the frustration suffered by any customer in regard to chartering planes or helicopters. The industry was clouded by charter brokers and operators who were more interested in their commission than satisfying their customers. The absence of a technology driven platform in the private aviation industry led to a lack of transparency and astronomical prices for the same. The demand for “something better” was the spark that led her to create “A professional and comprehensive technology driver charter service providing a variety of aircrafts with a transparent pricing system”
