For Bipin Dhane ('13), the path ahead was seemingly clear. In 2013, after graduating from IIT-Kharagpur in Naval Architecture, he found a job at a multinational company in Singapore.

However, this IIT graduate from Satara, Maharashtra, life had other plans, and in many ways, he had seen it coming.

"I never wanted the corporate life. There was no fulfilment in working there. For nearly a year and a half, I had thought about quitting. One day on social media, I connected with a friend of mine who was working in the remote river island of Majuli on the Brahmaputra River in Assam as a teacher for underprivileged children. I aspired to work in the education sector, and she told me there were opportunities to teach there.
