Raj was born in a village of Central India, raised by people slightly better than animals. His father killed himself by alcohol intoxication when he was 2yrs old. His mother killed herself with an insulin overdose in 2018.

He was raised by his mother and a stepfather and suffered physical, emotional, sexual abuse and was neglected most of his childhood and teenage years. Due to the preverbal years neglect and abuse he suffered growing up he developed mental health issues. He was formally diagnosed by a Psychiatrist with traits of Emotionally Unstable Personality, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Despite the many setbacks Raj managed to get out of his village, completed his nursing training and lived in Mumbai for 4yrs. For those 4yrs he lived in a room with 23 other people with his personal space of just 6feet by 3feet. The years in Mumbai set him up for life and helped him achieve a mindset of unshakeable resilience.

Raj arrived in England in 2002 with £5 in pocket but went onto complete a degree and postgraduate in early years child Psychology, start a family and more recently, through his desire to share his learnings, work his way up to the O2 stage in London where he gave his Tedx Talk in front of 1000+ audience.

The Mumbai Mindset: For Limitless Motivation

Mumbai, the city of dreams and nightmares as it’s come to be known, which you may have seen on BBC 2’s in their documentary ‘Streets of Gold’.

Here a million people live in a square mile, the population increases by 1000 people per day, and at least eight people die every day falling off the local trains.

Within that square mile of a million people, also lives a cockroach, a dog, a rat and a cat. This talk/lunch and learn session will look at what skills those four characters use every day, not just survive but to thrive!

Raj lived for 4yrs in the slums of Mumbai, for those 4yrs he was in a room shared with 23 other people and only space he had was 6feet by 3feet. Raj made it out of those slums of Mumbai, arrived in England on a one-way ticket with just £5 in his pocket and nineteen years later was standing on the stage of the O2 giving a Tedx Talk to a 1000 people.

As we will see, the Cockroach, the dog the rat and cat employed their distinct skills to overcome adversity and problem solve on their feet.

Empower your team to be effective and confident problem solvers and learn to relish overcoming obstacles and resolving conflict and become adaptable by learning from true survivors.

A. GAIN Resilience – be more Cockroach! Thrive on misfortunes and setbacks.

B. Build Motivation – be more Dog: The power of being rejected.

C. Foster Wellbeing – be like a Rat: Health is the first happiness.

D. Overcome adversities – land like the Cat: Be the solution looking for the problem.

A short film of Mumbai’s local trains sets the scene. In this interactive session, Raj will share anecdotes of how the survival instincts of each of the animals are relevant, not just in the slums of Mumbai but also right here in England. The talk will be light-hearted, humorous and suitable for small teams as well as large groups.

Resource Management & Team Building:

Delegates will work in small groups for this fun exercise to maximise team abilities. This will uncover hidden talents within your organisation that may help reduce waste, improve profits, enhance efficiency and bring your teams closer together.

Increased Efficiency:

The talk will end with Raj giving each delegate a souvenir from Mumbai to keep as a reminder to focus only on what’s essential and not get overwhelmed by day-to-day challenges.
