Mahesh holds a Masters in Social Work from the Karve Institute of Social Service. Drawing inspiration from his educational background in Family and Child Welfare, Mahesh thinks it is important to discuss the myriad issues of gender with young men. An old soul at heart, you would find Mahesh reliving old Bollywood songs and reading in his free time. Whenever he feels particularly inspired, he likes to dabble in the art of poetry. An optimistic person, ECF’s approach of working with men and boys appealed to him because it positively viewed men as allies in the fight to end gender discrimination.
