Matham Pramod Kumar
Having completed my degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-Madras), Chennai, in the year 2000, I worked as a Systems Engineer in Tata Consultancy Services, Hyderabad for a brief tenure. I left the software industry behind to pursue my interests in Indian Culture and spirituality.
I worked in collaboration with the International Forum for India’s Heritage (IFIH) as the National Coordinator, of which I am currently a Trustee.
I joined the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (Deemed University), Coimbatore, in 2003 where I designed and executed a unique Cultural Education programme for undergraduate students. Presently, I teach Indian Culture to the undergraduate students at the Amrita School of Engineering.
I am also the Convenor of the Human Excellence Programme at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Coimbatore Kendra.
I also write for journals like Vedanta Kesari and web journals like Vijayvaani.com. I travel widely and frequently to talk to students about India’s cultural heritage.
