Charanjeet Kaur DhillonCharanjeet Kaur Dhillon

Charanjeet was born in 1961 into the loving arms of Smt. Pal Kaur and Sardar Surjeet Singh. Belonging to a humble and loving agriculturist family, her formative years familiarized her with the beautiful simplicity of India’s core cultural values.

Both her parents, despite coming from conservative backgrounds themselves, paid great attention to the education of all their children, even to the point of relocating to Jaipur specifically for this purpose. Charanjeet completed her schooling from Banasthali Vidyapeeth and the all-round education that she gained during this time laid the foundation of Gandhian thought which she is trying to promote amongst the children today.

She went on to complete her BA from Maharani’s College and her MA (History) from Rajasthan University. Divine grace found her a caring life partner and friend in the form of Mr. Ravinder Singh Dhillon (IPS Retd.). Together, they not only braved the travails of frequent transfers associated with such a stressful job, but they also raised a small family. Their two sons, Himanshu Singh and Viplav Singh are both practicing advocates in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and in various other High Courts.

Blessed with many creative talents, Charanjeet had a successful career and business as a fashion designer. Her business house, “CJ’s House of Designer Outfits” was a reputed firm exporting garments across the globe, including USA and Brazil. Her designs were true to her philosophical training and eschewed ostentatious displays in favour of earthen hues, soft pastels and comfortable elegance.

As a matter of fact, on the dreadful day of September 11th 2001, she was in Miami USA when the world was shaken by acts of unimaginable violence. This marked a significant turning point in her personal journey and search for self-fulfilment. Driven to find deeper meaning in her life, she gradually wound up her business enterprise and in 2002, the nascent dream of Bal Bhavan Jaipur was finally realized. Bal Bhavan Jaipur was set up as a non-formal education centre to help children rediscover the joy of learning. It focusses on holistic education that would empower our children to become aware & responsible citizens.

By 2003 Charanjeet had completely shut down her business enterprise and since then, she has dedicated herself exclusively to the cause of meaningful education for all children that Bal Bhavan Jaipur can reach out to. This is a unique institution based on a participative & community based voluntary model in which like-minded people come together and contribute their time and expertise to give children from across the socio economic spectrum a safe and conducive environment to learn and develop their ability without the pressures of formal education. The 18 year journey of Bal Bhavan Jaipur has been a vast learning experience for children and facilitators alike. Today, the organisation is dedicated to helping children from the most disadvantaged sections of society, to helping them enter mainstream education so that they can create opportunities for themselves. Through education and awareness, our children from slums and underprivileged backgrounds are today earning accolades in academics and sports. Many of them are now volunteering at Bal Bhavan Jaipur and helping other young children achieve their dreams. The greatest testaments to the work of this institution are the 13 Bal Shree Honours awarded to the children of Bal Bhavan Jaipur between 2004 & 2015. In 2009, National Bal Bhavan recognised and felicitated the exemplary contributions of Bal Bhavan Jaipur towards value based education.

Charanjeet’s journey is parallel to that of Bal Bhavan Jaipur and despite the time already elapsed, there are many more wonderful adventures ahead.

Sanjeev ShriyaSanjeev Shriya has spent the better part of 3 decades in defining the landscape and creating new pathways for Identity and Digital security in India, with biometric and smart card technologies at its core.

He founded Smart Chip and Syscom, the two companies that spearheaded the adoption and proliferation of Smart Cards, Sim Cards and Biometric Identity solutions in India.

Starting with the launch of India’s 1st SIM card for cellular telephony in 1995, Sanjeev has collaboratively participated with the Telco industry in the revolution that is cellular telephony in India. His very early and deep engagement with majors like Hutchison Max (later Vodafone), Airtel & in recent times with the latest entrant Jio, has helped India transform the global communications eco-system. Under his leadership, his production facility in Noida for SIM cards & Smart Cards produces a little over 600 million cards every year; which is a shining example of “Make in India” for electronics hardware.

Sanjeev has always believed in use of technology for big changes in status quo. His evangelisation of the eco-system and regulatory regime to permit the use of the Aadhaar database for easy Kyc for SIM subscribers, led to his developing the biometric identity / technological infrastructure that had Jio acquire 100 million telecom subscribers in just 120 days. More recently Sanjeev is deeply involved in helping in the definition of regulatory and technology standards and the eco-system for managing the explosive growth of IoT in India, to allow for a secure, safe & reliable network of connected objects.

Sanjeev believes that the benefit of technology MUST reach the bottom of the pyramid. As he says “big changes must reach the grassroots; unless the roots are strong, the grass cannot remain green”. His thought leadership, vision and engagement has helped ideate, evangelise, create and foster a number of high impact national programs in India. His concept of “Biometric Equator” and the use of Biometric Identity for e-governance and businesses is seen as the foundation for programmes such as Aadhaar (identity for 1 billion), Rashtriya Swastha Bima Yojana (Health insurance program for 150 million poor people) and Jan Dhan Yojana (300 million Bank accounts for the unbanked). With these programs – India can proudly acclaim to lead the global stage for Digital Identity, Financial Inclusion and Digital empowerment.

Now, part of IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity and Digital Security business, Sanjeev’s leadership is bringing identity and biometric technologies for new age businesses, fintechs and shared economy, that will help deepen the digital engagement at grassroots and bring financial empowerment to even deeper and rural parts of India.

Sanjeev is an entrepreneur at heart and in practice. As a founder President of TiE in UP, he has mentored a large number of new entrepreneurs, start-ups and believes in the “democratisation of wealth through entrepreneurship”. He has been a member of number of government committees, bodies and informal think tanks for technology.

He is driven to foster a conducive environment for continuous innovation, and mentors young entrepreneurs and start-ups regularly. He is a music lover, and a keen follower of fine arts.

Shweta ChariShweta Chari is driven by the need to bridge the gap between at-risk children and their mental wellbeing as well as cognitive development well within our lifetime. Cognizant of the ‘power of play’ in strengthening the early years so that children grow up to be well-rounded adults, Shweta spent time organizing toy & game donation drives and volunteering with NGOs that worked with underserved children. Throughout this time, she saw in at-risk kids a desperate need for happy childhoods so they could grow up with joyous memories and be better individuals filled with kindness and empathy. Thus came into being Toybank — Development Through Play in 2004, which uses its Play2Learn program with the long-term goal of nurturing Early Childhood Development through Play. Daily, the non-profit impacts 56,000+ children at 400+ Play2Learn Centers across 12 districts of Maharashtra.

Ardently pushing play forward, Shweta has written and spoken on the subject at many forums, including Right to Play, which was published in The Global Journal. Owing to her efforts and championing for mainstreaming play, she was awarded the ‘Game Changer’ Award (2016) by HR Club of India, Star Social Entrepreneur Award by Indira International Innovation (2011) and the Woman of Courage Award by Godrej (2011). In 2013, Shweta was labelled as the ‘Young Achiever’ by the Maharashtra Chamber of Commerce. She was selected as one of the Young Turks on CNBC’s programme and was featured on CNN IBN as a Young Social Changemaker.

Inspired by the ethos, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men,” the Electronics Engineer continues to uphold the cause of learning and development through Play and works with a sense of urgency to address early childhood mental well-being to create a solid, empathetic society at large.
