New Delhi [India], March 6 (ANI/NewsVoir): Cracking examinations like GATE, ESE, and UPSC is a dream for all young Indians and job aspirants. However, coming out successfully in these examinations is not an easy task, as it demands a huge amount of hard work and determination.
Apart from that, a student should also require proper mentorship from an impeccable personality who knows in and out of the entire examination procedure. Jaspal Singh is one such Civil Engineering educator and mentor who has proved his mettle in helping aspirants for GATE/ ESE and other competitive exams to get into Public Sectors Units in the Civil Engineering domain.
To create a strong and professional educational ecosystem, Jaspal Singh is currently working as an educator with Unacademy, India’s leading online education platform. During his association with MadeEasy, India’s most popular academies for ESE preparations, Jaspal Singh has also successfully mentored lakhs of young brains.
Jaspal Singh’s unending passion for teaching.
It was in 2011 that Jaspal Singh left his job as an Assistant Executive Engineer in CPWD to pursue his passion for teaching. In the same year, he joined MadeEasy as an educator, and build a reputation as one of the most prolific teachers in his era. After marking his signature in the minds of thousands of students, Jaspal Singh joined Unacademy and started coaching GATE/ESE aspirants.

According to Jaspal Singh, Civil Engineering, being the oldest branch of engineering may seem boring for learners, but using new pedagogies, he successfully made learning an interesting experience.
“Civil Engineering being one of the oldest branches in Engineering has many topics that are conventional and can be boring for learners. To overcome this, I keep introducing new pedagogies and think of different ways in which I can represent the same concepts to make them more interesting. The biggest motivator for me is the fact that aspirants look up to me.
Their expectations from me and their hard work towards their dreams keep me motivated to keep going. Many of my students share their emotions and hopes with me, which further encourages me to give my best and help them succeed,” says Jaspal Singh.
Jaspal Singh holds a record in the India Book of Records

Women leaders forging partnerships in the face of a global pandemic

Published

By

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], March 6 (ANI/NewsVoir): With International Women’s Day just around the corner, the United Nations has set the theme for this year – “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”.
In this regard, it is only apt that we recognize the organized response spearheaded by women leaders against the COVID-19 pandemic, contributing significantly to the creation of The COVIDActionCollab.
Focusing on a multi-sectoral approach collaborating for social good, focused on minimizing transmission and reaching out to those affected.
The collaborative has built a strong & agile framework on sharing information among its partners, reaching out and provide high-impact services to the most vulnerable communities in India and take preventive measures to stop the spread of the pandemic.
The 305 partners of the collaborative represent the public, private, civil society, academic and other sectors. The organization has successfully delivered over 17 lakh services, with the support of nearly 2000 onboarded volunteers, mobilizing resources amounting to USD 1.3 crores.
The members bring to the table expertise in areas of Public Health, Medicine, Engineering, Technology, Sociology, Behavioural Science, Mental Health, Migration, Financing, Humanitarian Emergencies, and more. United, this collaboration has been a formidable weapon in the fight against COVID-19.
On being asked about the importance of women also being represented in positions of leadership, Shama Karkal, Chief Executive Officer of Swasti Health Catalyst, a member of the collaborative shared, “Pandemic response needs to be holistic and all-encompassing.
Leaving out women in leadership during this hour is leaving out an entire population – and we end up risking having a response system that does not work since it does not meet the needs of this population.”
Dr Angela Chaudhuri, Director of Swasti Health Catalyst and member of the collab, raised a pertinent question, “Take, for instance, women at the frontlines of COVID-19 response. With schools closed and us being entrenched in a patriarchal system where the burden of care and responsibilities towards child and family care is disproportionately placed on most women, would we offer the kind of support required to our predominantly female health workforce if women leaders who see the problem don’t lead the change?
And what happens when our human resources for health struggle with their lives? Entire systems for pandemic responses see cracks. The pandemic response is like any other system working with human beings in crisis. It is only as strong as its weakest personnel.”
“I think during the pandemic leadership across industries and organizations was highly challenged, irrespective of the gender of leadership. I was as much worried about the sudden disruption in work, donor commitments, negotiations, goal achievement, keeping up the morale of my team, and the uncertainties which came along, as any responsible leader would be.
The pandemic period has been a very unfortunate one that no one was prepared for. However, like any other leader, I endured and responded to it the best way I could.” shared Sonali Khan, a partner of the collaboration, who leads Sesame Workshop’s educational mission in India.
Our women leaders have together worked towards overcoming these difficulties and driving the organization to success! As Neelam Makhijani Country Director and CEO, Child Fund India a member of the collaboration would put it, “During COVID-19 pandemic, as an NGO, it was our moral obligation to be out there for our communities.
Through much uncertainties, confusion, apprehension, and fear, I was able to lead the organization to fulfill its duty. As a result, we performed at our best, even during the most critical times.
Yet again, I was able to achieve this with the support of a tribe – my team, my leaders, and our partners. Imagine what would happen if all girls and women had a tribe like I did, that helped them believe in themselves and land where they want to be!”
When asked about the impact women in leadership positions would have on future generations, Rebecca Chandy, Sr. Manager – Counselling & Training, Resilience Works, member of the collaborative said, “In an ideal world, it shouldn’t matter whether a woman is running any of the major world organizations.
The lower-level employees would not care whether their salaries were made possible by a woman or a man. However, seeing more and more women at the top will encourage young girls to strive for the top positions.”
The partnerships forged have had a deep impact on protecting vulnerable communities and supporting various stakeholders through the pandemic.
Working towards supporting organizations and state governments, the women leaders of the collaborative have stood steadfast alongside vulnerable communities such as the transgender community, fisherman communities, and the community of sex workers protecting the livelihood of various sections and building economic resilience for their future.
