About Me

Born on 8th September at Aligarh, I have seen many phases from my corporate life to fulfilling my dreams with NGOs. Let me give you a brief about my education, professional career, and passion. I completed my high school from Our Lady Of Fatima Aligarh. Later I graduated from Aligarh Muslim University and pursued a PG Diploma in labour law at Indian Law Institute New Delhi. I also did MBA from IGNOU. Joined NTPC in 1982 as an Engineering Trainee in 7th batch, working through Engineering Department moved to P&A in 1991 as part of Job rotation (as I had completed my MBA as well). I also headed the Administration PAN INDIA for ABB.

I was Heading the Administration function when I left NDPL (now TPDDL) in Sep 2008. I have also worked as ex-national head sales support till the year 2013. Later in my life, in 2013, I got the opportunity to get associated with Udayan Care. As soon as Dr. Kiran Modi, the Managing Trustee of Udayan Care, gave an idea of taking up mentorship at Greater Noida Home around January 2013, I jumped at the opportunity. After few months, I quit my job from a senior position in Tata Teleservices Limited and plunged headlong at Udayan Care Home at Greater Noida on 6th September 2013.

My BOOK

WINGS TO FLY

I have recently published my memoir WINGS TO FLY. The book is about my transformational journey from an active corporate career till the age of 53 to that of my present role as a caregiver for the children in need of care and protection. The book is full of stories and anecdotes which I am sure the reader will find interesting.

ROLES

I have served in many roles during my corporate career. At present, I am a full-time volunteer at Udayan Care. I serve as a Trustee and a Fundraiser for the organisation. I am a Mentor Father to 40 girls at Udayan Care girls’ home in Greater Noida. It has been an interesting journey from being a part-time volunteer in 2009 to a Trustee since 2019.

I also raise funds for Vigyanshaala which is primarily working to empower girls in the important area of STEM education across India.

VISION

Economic independence for every girl.

MISSION

The mission is to strengthen & empower underserved girls through all the stages of life and to ensure that she receives love, care and a safe environment leading to complete independence..

DEEPAK SHARMA RECOMMENDS

Volunteering: I would strongly recommend people to enrol themselves for volunteering with organisations like Udayan Care, Teach for India, Vigyanshaala, etc. There are ample opportunities to share your time, knowledge, and skills with those who really need them.

Books: I am a voracious reader who prefers non-fictional books. I believe books are exceptional teachers and one can evolve to a great extent by reading them.

I recommend couple of my favourite books here:

  • The Creation of Wealth by R M Lala
  • The Story of My Experiments with Truth by Mahatma Gandhi
  • Wings of Fire by APJ Abdul Kalam
  • India’s Railway Man: A Biography of E. Sreedharan by Rajendra B. Aklekar

Sports: When it comes to sports, playing cricket was my first passion and still is. Apart from that I play TT, Badminton, and Tennis. I am a fitness freak who walks 6-7 kms every morning for the last 30 years. I also participate in marathons like the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon. It is one of my favourite activities and I look forward to it every year. I recommend everyone to develop a habit of playing the sports they like. Make sure your body gets the ample physical activity it needs!
