Dr. Sonali Sarnobat
B.H.M.S, M.D, C.G.O, C.C.H
Born in a migrated Gujarathi family from Ahmedabad, Dr. Sonali Sarnobat is an eminent Homeopathic Consultant and Nutritionist from India. She is also a renowned columnist writing for various newspapers and periodicals. She is a gold medalist in the BHMC and MD course and a certified dietician.
She has two consulting centers in prime areas of Belgaum as well as in Sangli and Goa.
The motivating force behind her success was that of her late mother and her supportive husband Dr. Sameer Sarnobat. Her quest for knowledge was fuelled by her grandfather and grandmother who were freedom fighters and after freedom, they both served as fingerprint experts in the police department. Her grandmother in the era of the freedom movement of India was a highly educated, self-motivated, modern woman with a nationalistic ideology. She believed in womens’ empowerment and education in that era when women did not even have equal status in society.
This environment at home and teachings imbibed in the tender mind of Dr. Sonali at an early age had a bearing on her development.
Dr. Sonali has a vision and commitment for the health, women, and society of India.

All talk of helping out those in need would be futile without action. With a view to actively help and support women, founded the Niyathi Foundation that is currently operating in the Belagavi region. It is an NGO that helps to empower, educate and support women. Empowering women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential to build stronger economies, achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and improve the quality of life for women, men, families, and communities.
Initiatives of Niyathi Foundation
Niyathi foundation’s flagship endeavor is MISSION NO SUICIDES! Youth suicide is when young persons, generally categorized as someone below age 21, deliberately end their own life. Rates of attempted and completed youth suicide in Western societies and other countries are high. Suicide rates in youths have nearly tripled between the 1960s and 1980s. In this mission, the identified suicide-prone candidates are identified, encouraged to speak out, counseled, and convinced in such a manner that they never think of suicide again and lead a healthy and happy life.
Contribution to Belagavi Smart City
Dr. Sonali has been nominated as a member of the “Smart City” conclave held by the National Women’s Commission i.e NWC. She has authored a book on Smart city, named “Smart city being smart”.
Smart City Being Smart
Her “Smart city- being smart” book is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city’s assets. These assets include local departments’ information systems, schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, and other community services.
A smart city is promoted to use urban informatics and technology to improve the efficiency of services. ICT allows city officials to interact directly with the community and the city infrastructure and to monitor what is happening in the city, how the city is evolving, and how to enable a better quality of life. Through the use of sensors integrated with real-time monitoring systems, data are collected from citizens and devices – then processed and analyzed. The information and knowledge gathered are keys to tackling inefficiency.
Dr. Sonali is also actively working for the Belagavi smart city project.
