Samrat hails from the city of Mumbai, India. Among the chaos of the financial capital of India and finding a certain degree of comfort in it, he grew up regularly visiting national parks and venturing on trekking expeditions in the mighty Himalayas. He completed his under-graduation in Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a specialization in Entrepreneurship from the Foundation for Liberal and Management Education (FLAME) university, the first of its kind in India, before going on to complete his Master’s in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University (MNSU), Mankato with a focus on Experiential Educative Travel. He has had the opportunity to travel, explore and embed himself within the European, Asian and North American countries and has been truly humbled by the sheer diversity in these cultures. He believes the beauty and essence of Experiential Education are that you can take any topic and make the class highly interactive and learner-centric.
