After close to thirty years of corporate life I moved to the Nilgiris in 2010. Around 2017, I took up an assignment to head a training academy at Hyderabad. I was eager to get back to the Nilgiris again and it was during this search that Light and Life Academy (LLA) happened.
My sister, one of the earliest students at the Academy which started in the year 2001 had fond memories of her Life @ LLA and extremely positive things to say about the Founders, Iqbal Mohamed and Anuradha. Knowing that I had always wanted to be a part of the Academic world she suggested that I should look at LLA as the place where I could spend the rest of my career, contributing and learning. A common friend spoke to Anuradha and connected me with her. After a few phone calls and a personal meeting at LLA things ‘clicked’ and I was invited to join the Academy as CEO.
