Sushant, in a post on April 5, 2019, had expressed his desire to 'create an environment where kids of India and elsewhere, get ‘free’, improved and relevant education and great many ways to acquire any skill of choice for free'. He had written, "To create a structure like this, and now, could be highly possible with right intentions and some working knowledge of chaos and game theories, non-zero sum structures that bio-mimic. Any suggestion/feedback/idea for the Cause, if you have, please do share. I would be highly obliged. It’s about time that we acknowledge ‘convergence’ that’s happening all around the globe and make the youth more competent and happy ‘now’. Because as they say, the more we learn, the lesser time it takes for us to learn even more. Let’s begin. It’s about ‘time’. Jai shiv Shambho "
