You might not know about Alok Sagar. He is a scholar who went to IIT and Houston for his studies and also taught former RBI governor Raghuram while he was teaching at IIT Delhi. But unfortunately these degrees could not satisfy him. He was looking for something else in his life. So he quit his job.
Alok decided to serve the people living in remote tribal villages of Madhya Pradesh. He started working in Betul and Hoshangabad districts of Madhya Pradesh. The sole purpose of his stay was to work for the tribals, see their problems and help them solve those problems. Amazingly, he spent the last 26 years of his life in the remote village of Kochamu in Madhya Pradesh. Kochamu is known to have about 750 tribals and a primary school. This place still lacks basic needs like electricity and roads.
Alok Sagar has always been very optimistic about his decision to work for the tribals. He believes that people can really serve this country by focusing on the grassroots level, which is often ignored.
