About the Millennium Fellow
Sanket Agarwal is a second-year engineering student at the University of Delhi(North Campus).

He has been especially vocal about the plight of people living in the poverty-stricken rural areas of his country and how the tyranny of the privileged has continually caused their situation to degrade. He aims to start a social entrepreneurial venture to improve the living standards and per capita income of rural areas.
