A third-year undergraduate student at Columbia University, Abhinav is majoring in Economics and Sustainable Development with a concentration in Sanskrit. He started learning the Sanskrit language as a high-school student and completed a three-year Sanskrit immersion program before matriculation into college. As a sophomore last year, he co-founded a YouTube channel called Spoken Sanskrit Series that aims to teach conversational Sanskrit in an enjoyable and casual manner. His efforts towards the revival of the language continue with him being co-founder and singer in a Sanskrit A Cappella group named The Sanskrit Boys. Additionally, Abhinav is a professional South-Indian percussionist and performs in concerts and outreach programs across the United States, India, and other venues abroad.
