Even though I had always been curious and thoughtful right from the beginning of my life, my innovative mindset and consistent nature is a gift bestowed upon self by my parents. Today I feel, it is the inculcation of these virtues which had its own share of contributions in making me a technology enabled engineer.

The true spirit of my being was not to achieve any rank but was to develop my conceptual understanding of fundamentals. I was always inspired by my professors in my college and was one of the most preferred students in my batch for doing any college level projects. I underwent internship in a reputed company “Rotex Pneumatic Pvt Ltd” where I actively contributed on a commercial project which is currently in use at Dr. Reddy’s Lab manufacturing unit at Bangalore.

While working on my B.E projects, I got the opportunity to work with a well-known graphite rod manufacturing company Graphite India Ltd. Here, I contributed in the development of an automated data acquisition process. After joining the industry, I was very keen on solving the tedious problems of factory workers. This helped me to stimulate my creative mind. During evening time, I used to conduct coaching classes for engineering students. This activity helped me to realize my strong inclination towards teaching profession. Today, I am happy to see my students working effectively in reputed companies and feel satisfied when I receive their appreciation towards my teaching skills.

After shifting to Mumbai, I joined an institution named Tech-Max where I gained a unique experience by proof reading of various technical books. The whole-hearted support of my family helped me to complete my Post Graduation. It was a major milestone in my life when I got an opportunity to work as an Asst. Professor in VIT, Mumbai, and the most preferred Institute by the students. After joining the Electronics Department, I got the opportunity to teach not only the core subjects related to my discipline but also other interesting subjects like Engineering Drawing.

My self-confidence took a quantum jump when the books written by self on ‘Advance Instrumentation Systems’ in the year 2015 and on ‘Instrumentation System Design’ in 2019 became a grand success and received accolades from various circles. Today, I feel contended with my achievement when I see the wide usage of these books by the students of Mumbai University.

Besides the technical accomplishments, I also have interest in singing and Rangoli making. My keen interest in wild-life has today turned me into a regular visitor to many wild life sanctuaries in India.
