Satya grew up as an agnostic greatly influenced by the ideals of socialism although he was born in a Hindu home. After having searched for the truth for a few years, he was introduced to the person of Christ at the age of 20. The desire to ‘make Him known to all peoples’ led him to join World Vision. In the past 10 years of his involvement in the development sector, he has been working towards wholistic development of the people along with Emmanuel Hospital Association (EHA) and One World. He has now ventured to start a micro enterprise company to serve the marginalised people in North India. Esther, Satya’s wife comes from a Christian family. She came to know the Lord in 1996 after her post graduate studies. Her zeal to make her God known gave her a lot of opportunities to share her faith in varied situations. After a short stint with The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) church in Nasik, she joined Emmanuel Hospital Association involved in coordinating their various programs. She now serves as a Group Coordinator for Interserve India providing pastoral care for those who live in and around Delhi.
Apart from the professional careers, they are actively involved in their church and also in the Union of Evangelical Students of India (UESI) ministry, working among young graduates and university students. They have a 5 year old daughter, Prashansa and make their home in New Delhi.
