Vayam

Bengaluru, India
Joined February 2019

Vayam, in India, is working towards a future in which there are more innovators building solutions, more citizens demanding change, and a judiciary that is open to engagement with civil society.



Presence in: India
Focus: Citizenship, Governance

Complex systems, like the judiciary, do not have obvious one-dimensional cause-and-effect solutions. A top-down, expert driven, centralised and siloed, approach to improving the justice delivery system will not serve us. We need to enable decentralised and collaborative solutions at multiple levels and trigger both a supply and demand for a more accessible, user-centric and efficient judicial system.

We are committed to building a future in which there are more innovators and entrepreneurs building solutions, more citizens demanding change and a judiciary that is more open to engagement with citizens, youth and civil society.

For this, we want to (i) Find & Nurture Changemakers in India through Agami Prize, Agami Network and Agami Challenges (ii) Build Enabling Infrastructure such as an Open Data Platform for Aggregate Judicial Data and (iii) Activate Citizen Participation through Litigant Forums and Media Narratives.

Interests: Citizenship, Governance, Other
I lead the Innovation Hub at Vayam, where we seek to enable innovation in the legal sector. Our primary aims are (i) to create an ecosystem for innovation in the legal space and (ii) to bring in more innovators to solve for issues in the legal system in India.

I completed my LL.M from Harvard University in 2018 where I focussed on gender and the law, criminal law, human rights and development. Prior to that I was a Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Constitutional Law, Policy, and Governance, NLU Delhi where I led the Prison Advocacy Project.

I am looking to connect with various innovators across the world, to build collaborations and to see where we can create opportunities in India.
