Mentor In Action

Author Name: Simran Chhabra | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

Born into a Punjabi middle-class household in the late nineties, Simran Chhabra’s world was the south east side of Panchkula, where her parents raised her to be fearless as they shared a small nook in her paternal grandmothers’ brown-brick bungalow. But life soon took her further afield from the crowded classrooms of Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School, Chandigarh, where she learned about detractors, and the vast lecture halls of Panjab University, Chandigarh where she pursued her bachelors to the hallowed halls of Harvard University, Cambridge, where she learned what it felt to be the only South Asian Hindu Punjabi woman. More recently she served as an advocacy intern for Consul General, Mia Yen at the Canadian High Commission in Chandigarh. 

Mentor in Action takes us through Chandigarh living rooms and high-profile diplomatic boardrooms, through moments of heart-wrenching grief and profound resilience, taking us deep into the soul of an ordinary mentee from Chandigarh and her extraordinary mentor from Canada. In narrating her story with grace, good humor and rare candor, Simran moots a question to the rest of us: Who are we in action?
