Udit graduated from the Shri Ram School where he studied the IB and apart from Oxford applied to number of leading US colleges. He has spent the last five summers working in a girl's school in Srinagar ravaged by military conflict and communal tension. He has worked for summer after he graduated from school with Future Works helping students to hone their writing skills and widen their intellectual interests, in a hope that working with him will not only help them get into college but also prepare themselves for the significant mental rigour that is central to an education in a leading university.
