Open minded and a good listener, Aneel has struck a fine balance in life with one ear to the ground on one hand and a vision spanning the horizon on the other. His proactive approach to life was visible right through his early days thorugh his enthusiastic involvement in his son’s school’s affairs when he was Chairman of the PTA Body at Jamnabai Narsee School in Juhu – then an ICSE School – for two years. He was instrumental in introducing the IGCSE curriculum at Jamnabai. Being the principal coordinator, he successfully organized many cultural activities to foster better bonding between Parents and the Institution, notably the gala celebrations of the school completing 35 years in which he had roped in prominent celebrities as performers – an event that has become the talk of lore in the school’s corridors. Aneel also headed a project on `Keep Clean Go Green’ to educate citizens about civic awareness and environment. The school students held a walkathon in the area with about 5000 placards displaying different messages.
This passion for supporting activities aimed at the youth and providing them with platforms for a credible expression, has seen Aneel instrumental in organizing Inter-Collegiate competitions in various spheres like debate, quiz, singing and dance. Having started Inter Collegiate competitions in Mumbai and scaling them up to Inter State levels, he now wants to extend these activities to a regional and national level.
