LIFE HISTORY

Born on 16th January, 1942 in a small remote village Talwandi Rukka, Dist. Hissar, Haryana, he is from an agricultural family of modest means. He studied in the light of kerosene lamp, in a dusty village that had no power, no doctor and no school or college. He used to walk miles to go to school. Throughout his academic life, he has been a top ranking student but could not complete his Engineering due to financial problems. The hardships faced in the beginning of his life made an ever- lasting imprint on his mind that success is not a bed of roses. He is now settled in the twin cities of Hyderabad-Secunderabad of Telangana for more than 37 years. He learnt lessons of real life from his father, Late Shri Banwarilal Goel. Though a small farmer, he was a selfless, devoted social worker. He was a `KARMAYOGI' in the true sense, and was responsible for imbibing GOOD VALUES and SANSKAR in his children.
