Dr. Tushar Vinod Deoras: India's top career counsellor with social cause
With a firm belief that every student is unique and must therefore identify a career path that is suitable for them, Dr Tushar Vinod Deoras has envisioned setting up one of the most ethical student centric career counselling academy with a social cause.
He believes that a career demands various skill-sets, with different weightage, assessing of which is a very complex process. Accordingly, he advises that students must begin to explore their career paths from the 9th standard itself, if they have to find their roadmap to success. They must choose their career first and then the course which they will pursue to lead them to succeed in their chosen career. In keeping with this ethos, he started counselling students 25 years back.
An ex-scientist from the Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Deoras believes that education must be free from commercialisation. With a passion to mentor and guide students onto the right career path, Deoras provides free career counselling services and has conducted thousands of free career counselling seminars that benefitted lakhs of students. He believes that institutes should not be run solely on student fees but must get external research funding to become commercially viable.
At heart, Deoras is an innovator and a research scholar. He took up the fight against commercialisation in education by becoming a career counsellor to bring about educational reforms. Today, he has been recognized as the top career counsellor in India and had been nominated for "Padma Shree", received many awards from honourable Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, Rajnath Singhji, Nitin Gadkari, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis and many more. He is also the recipient of many prestigious international awards, including one from the House of Lords and House of Commons of the British Parliament, London and the World’s Greatest Leaders in Dubai. He has also received accolades from many other countries, like Russia and Mauritius.
Deoras believes, “Quality education is fundamental right of every student”. In line with his broader mission, he also runs an “Anti-Donation Campaign” to help a large number of economically weaker students achieve their dream of having a professional career. This has culminated in him helping admit students into prestigious institutes even with low marks.
