When I do have free time I spend it on Public Outreach i.e. taking Science or Astronomy to the general public. Doing so, makes me better at my understanding of the subject and also gives a sense of satisfaction of taking this knowledge to the masses.
I do conduct sky observing sessions for people such as showing the Moon and planets through a telescope, mobile-planetarium shows or even night long sky gazing shows away from the city with amateur astronomy enthusiasts in Pune.
As an amateur astronomy enthusiast I grew up looking at seniors and people mainly from a group of amateurs called “Akashmitra” in Pune. Although most of them are currently not in Pune (many are out of India) I did learn a lot of astronomy under them. From 2014- early 2016, I have given about 14 talks in this group on astronomical topics and I have also been a part of their public outreach activities.
This page would highlight my public outreach ventures.
