In 1989, a group of 10-12 enthusiastic youths started informal weekly gatherings on self development under the leadership of a young, life-aspiring engineer, Sanjiv Shah. Within a short span of 2 years, this Self Development Circle(as it was known earlier) evolved to around 250-300 youth participants. In 1992, to facilitate the growing need of structure, they formally set up an organisation and fondly named it “Oasis-a university of Love, Life & Friendship for youth”
