I have grown up in a lower middle-class family. Since my childhood, I have always strived to get an opportunity to seek knowledge. I had to go through a lot of obstacles to complete my engineering graduation.

Good friend and good teachers have always stood by me; both personally and professionally. In my journey from paying fees to taking meals during my engineering days; and landing at my first job as a Lab Assistant in VIT are both testimonies to this strange but beautiful aspect of my life. Interest in C and C++ programming was my strength, when I joined Vidyalankar in 2004. After getting expertise in C/C++. I mastered networking skills also and was promoted as a Network Engineer in the same organization.

After my M.E., I started working as a lecturer here. My key areas of interest are C, C++, Soft Computing, Operating System Concepts, and Java Programming and I would always like to consider myself as an eternal student. This attitude helps me understand students’ perspective when they face difficulties in understanding any subject(s); so, I proactively cater to their concerns. I strive to teach in such a way that my students understand with least trouble and thereby ensuring they stay connected with me to clarify their doubts without hesitation

I also had an opportunity to assist our Principal Sir in writing books on C, C++ and Java; through which I gained a unique perspective in these subjects. At present, I am pursuing my Ph.D. and am fortunate to have one of the best minds as my guide. My mantra on each day of college is to start my day with enthusiasm and impart good knowledge to make a positive impact in my students’ lives.
