Introduction
By creating a large resource base of new ‘role models’ or mentors for underprivileged children, Sriram Ayer is introducing the component of empathy in the existing education system and bridging the gap between a child’s perceived intelligence quotient and hidden emotional quotient. He is thus ushering in a systemic change in the way education is perceived and delivered to low-income groups and adding a new dimension to the way their dormant skills and abilities can be nurtured to ensure a future at par with the rest.
