Though selected for admission to IIT’s with a high merit, he decided to pursue pure science as a national science talent scholar. After completing B.Sc. honors in Physics from Delhi University, he chose elementary Particle Physics as his specialization in M.Sc. It was then that he started to realize that at the quantum level of reality, it will become necessary to understand consciousness as the source course and goal of the physical universe which was not possible by purely objective physical means used in Physics of that time.
Disillusioned with objective science, his attention briefly turned to the surface world of poverty and mismanagement in all spheres of life and as a consequence he started to study management. After completing PGDM from IIM Ahmedabad, and working in public sector for a few years, he again realized the futility of trying to change the world at a superficial level.
