His ideology: from the day a child comes into the world till death, it is politics that shapes one s life. But not many are passionate about politics because of the way it exists. Ignoring anything does not give you results and fighting against that will yield the results probably not for me but for the generations to come: Jagadheeswaran realized this towards the end of his college days, planned his life in such a way that he would settle his family and then become a politician to bring the CHANGE. Worked with TCS, CTS for the past 8 yrs, started couple of NGO’s helping economically downtrodden people, was in US for 3 yrs during his employment met US Politicians to learn the way it’s been run there, came back to India, got married to a girl who understood his passion, got associated with Lok Satta where he met other like-minded, passionate persons and a great leader Dr.JP to work with and quit his job.
