Goodpal

A researcher by training and have considerable experience of research and industry. For over 20 years, I have been closely associated with Vipassana meditation. I am fortunate that some severe tragedies and misfortunes of the past connected me to a lot of wonderful people whose presence adds meaning into my life..

I love to associate with people who value their own good qualities and make efforts to help others improve into better human beings through care, compassion and goodwill.

I particularly write on poverty, population, development and mental health.
