Lt. Bhaskar started working out and training himself for Army right at the age of 6. He knew he needed to be physically fit to be part of the Armed forces and so gave his 100% to achieve it. He was very particular about his eating habits.
Being a part of the armed forces is not everyone’s cup of tea. One needs to be physically and mentally fit. Lt. Bhaskar’s dedication and inclination right from fitness, to healthy eating habits and his routine sports, like running and swimming were all a part of his long-term goal.
His inclination was towards things that were a sign of a well-managed and intellectual person. He loved playing chess and he hasn’t stopped playing it still…Being a hard-working person, Lt. Bhaskar took part in a lot of competitions and won Chess Championships at different levels.
Lt.

Turning Dreams… into reality
Soon after his graduation, Lt. Bhaskar joined Indian Navy as an Officer Cadet in Executive Cadre through permanent commission entry of CDSE of UPSC. Though his dream was to join the Army, however, he got selected for Navy. He is one of those who found a positive vibe and God’s indication in everything, and so he showed his true calibre in his work. This was an achievement on its own and he won laurels and appreciated by one and all.
Uncertainties came with success
Bhaskar was seasick as he joined Navy and it could not go for long. He planned to switch to corporate life as a senior Security officer which was always his passion. He was initially very confident that being an ex-Navy officer with such skills and talent, any corporate would be more than happy to hire him. But soon his dreams and hopes were shattered as no company offered him a suitable job. He couldn’t accept his misfortune and started losing hope.
After a lot of struggle, preparing at Career launcher for six months, he finally managed to get a good percentile to bag a seat at a premium B school. Then to his luck and by God’s grace, he started his career in Adani group at Kuchh as a senior Security officer. For 3 years he stayed at an isolated Mundra port which was owned by the Adani group. Undoubtedly it was way frustrating and being aloof for 3 years wasn’t easy. “Even today when I think of that time, I get goose-bumps”, says Lt. Bhaskar. “No one likes to live alone in an isolated place, it may leave a person angry, frustrated, and might lead him into depression” – he says.
A never-die approach of Bhaskar Shukla
Lt. Bhaskar was not one of those who would give up, so he kept himself busy. Today he is working with Thermal Power Plant at Jhajjar, Haryana as a security manager since 2017. He has received the highest accreditation of security i.e. CPP® Certification of ASIS International, which is an international recognition a gold standard and a matter of pride for any security professional and CISM® Certification by ISACA, one of the biggest recognitions of security certification.
Lt. Bhaskar has never been a loser and soon became a “Life-changing coach”. He decided to help people around him. For this, Bhaskar started helping people with the aim to show them the right direction in life. He started on his journey by mentoring his friends, colleagues and others. Further, he decided to give a formal name and position to his work as a lot of people were beginning to approach him too… Now since past 10 years, he has been healing people spiritually and has become a motivational speaker too.
Spiritual healer and Spiritual runner
Lt. Bhaskar is a big follower and believer of Danveer Karna, a warrior of the epic Mahabharata. He not only believes but also follows his footsteps. He wanted to uplift the human mind and fulfil their needs in every possible way he could.
Lt. Bhaskar is a spiritual and believes that he is the blessed child of the Mother Lord, Gayatri Maa. He says that his strength and all his achievements are a dedication to this mother. The best way to do that is to make her proud with his work and achievements. Today he knows that his mother feels immense pleasure and satisfaction seeing his son reach such great heights.
Swimming has always been a part of Bhaskar’s routine and he loves it because he puts his soul to it. He chants while swimming & now he has started the same while running and that’s why he has been tagged as a Spiritual Runner.
For once, Lt. Bhaskar had thought of taking a pause. But then Lockdown and Covid-19 pandemic appeared and he got a lot of time to reframe his life. Being always inclined towards studies, he went ahead and completed many certificate courses. According to him, the lockdown phase is the best time to gather knowledge. Bhaskar did not stop at one course but kept going on one after the other in his field of Physical Security, HR, Logistics, Safety, Information Security, Operations, and more.
To his and everyone’s surprise, he completed 175 certifications in just 50 days, which is a record in itself. An unbelievable move, he created history with his dedication, hard work, and perseverance!
Lt. Bhaskar Shukla wants to be recognized as “the Ironman.” We all know how careful and particular he has been about keeping himself physically fit. His experience in the field along with his certification is way beyond. At the same time, he wants to be the most successful life-changing coach, as it gives him happiness helping mankind without expecting anything in return.
Indeed, time is a very precious part of our lives and we need to spend each minute wisely. Another important aspect of our life that is very important is health. “Health is the most precious wealth”, says Lt. Bhaskar.
Someone who is healthy can achieve great heights and would have the courage to fight and achieve these goals. So, this is Lt. Bhaskar, a man who believes and follows that Humanitarianism is truly the best religion. In a society where people have become quite self-centred, Bhaskar has always moved ahead in life with full zeal, enthusiasm, and with the aim to uplift the society and help the needy. He is a person with true and genuine spirits, is pious, and is highly proficient in whatever he undertakes. People like Bhaskar are truly gifted. It is through their deeds they are directly connected to the almighty.
Truly, Lt. Bhaskar Shukla is a man with a positive attitude and high spirits!
