Interests: Access to Information, Community / Customary Land Rights, Economic Empowerment, Education, Environmental Justice, Gender-based violence, Generalist Legal Services, Governance, Health, Housing & Sanitation, Labor & Employment, Land & Natural Resources, Other, Peace-building
I have been active in social and economic transformation of the society since my student days. I led students’ movement for the rights of students, and better education environment.
Later on, I joined movements for social, political and economic changes at local level. In the course of the movement, they gathered vast experiences and ideas which converged into the shape of an organization named ‘Koshish’, i.e. ‘efforts for change’.
With the formation of the organization, equal opportunities to all, equality, justice and fraternity, overall development of the society and individuals at grassroots level, upholding of Human Rights, striving for conservation of environment and bio-diversity and mitigating climate change effect have been my commitment. I facilitate Community monitoring through vigilance committee and establish accountability.

I have been imparting training on legal issues, human rights issues, gender sensitization, building peace and communal harmony and community empowerment and environment conservation. Evidence based research on issues relating human development (food, health, water, sanitation, education, housing etc.) for advocacy and campaign has been my priority. For promotion of local level grassroots justice, I have been working ceaselessly.

As a convener of Right to Food campaign, Bihar state chapter, I have developed a network of more than 100 organization working of various issues of human progress. Through this network issues on food security, malnutrition and other issues pertaining to land, water and natural resources are focused in public agenda and government is pressurized to take effective measures.

I am also the Advisor of Bihar to the Commissioner of the Supreme Court in the case PUCL vs UOI and other Wirt petition (civil) 196/2001.
