Ashish Kulkarni: Ashish graduated with a Masters degree in economics from Gokhale Institute, Pune in 2006, and has a PhD from the same University. He currently works as an Assistant Professor at the Gokhale Institute. Between the acquisition of these degrees, he spent some years pretending to look busy in a couple of firms based out of Bangalore. He’s been trying to demystify economics in various colleges since 2009, and reckons that the battle will probably last for life. Reading and eating would be his goods of choice on an indifference curve diagram.
Vasundhara Sen: Vasundhara also graduated with a Masters degree in economics from Gokhale Institute in 2006, and rounded off her corporate career in the field of renewable energy in 2013. She teaches courses in economics at SCMHRD, Pune, besides taking on freelance teaching assignments in economics. Undaunted by the epic saga that is her husband’s PhD degree, she also chose to battle the beast, and finished her PhD in 2021.
