Ajay was fortunate to complete high school and B.Sc. in Biosciences at Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School and Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL), respectively. With Swami’s blessings, he was part of the SSSIHL Brass Band as a percussionist and guitarist and has performed several times in Swami’s Divine presence.
He holds a PhD in Pharmacology from University of Minnesota and is a research fellow in Neurology at Harvard Medical School. Ajay is also co-founder and CSO of Blue Therapeutics, a startup focused on developing non-addictive painkillers. Swami also blessed his father who served as a visiting professor at SSSIHL and his mother served in the IT department of Swami’s Whitefield super-speciality hospital. Ajay and his wife, Sonia, attend the Norwood Sai Center in MA. He is currently serving as the Region 1 male YA rep.
In his talk, brother Ajay will focus on life lessons he learned at the lotus feet by observing Swami as an individual who worked hard to make a difference around Him every single day. There were big and great undertakings like hospitals and water projects that we are all aware of, but there were also the little things, seemingly inconsequential, but extremely relevant to our own sense of purpose. We will use some of these experiences as a template to emulate Swami’s passion for community engagement and service, so that we can live His Message everyday.
