Introductions! Come in, Say Hi!


Hi all. Welcome to Budget Forum by Open Budgets India. I’m Arun Sudarsan, Economist and Policy Researcher at CivicDataLab.

I’m based out of Kerala/Tripura, love cooking, spends an inordinate amount of time reading newspapers and current affairs magazines, and yearns to go watch a movie in a multiplex as soon as possible!

We are starting this forum to bring together everyone who’s interested in India’s budgets and engage in meaningful conversations around budget priorities, openness of fiscal data, policies for social equity etc.

Thank you for joining the forum. Kindly take a minute and introduce yourself so we can get to know each other :slight_smile:

Hi Suad! Welcome to the Budget Forum. We are glad to have you here and hope to engage you in relevant discussions.
Thanks for sharing the open fiscal data portal, it is a very useful tool to explore.

Hello, Anand this side. I’ve been working with various education nonprofits for 8 years. Here to explore collaborations around improving scheme delivery. Based in Mumbai. Studied computer science, took up social work after a year at Oracle, and have of late been in awe of the potential of open knowledge platforms and the hard work that goes in sustaining them.

I am a Marathi in love with Kashmir, and I won’t stop telling people I was born the same day Isaac Asimov died. : )
