I learnt many practical lessons from my father while he used to take sample of cotton and stretch it, to carry out cotton grading. I used to ask my father; how you can do this so precisely, and he always answered me, by technique and practice. I understood the importance of discipline from our school Headmaster. I completed my SSC and HSC in the company of very good friends, from the Government aided school and junior college at Yavatmal, Maharashtra.

It was during the discussion of live cricket matches with my friends, that I was always forced to think how we can see live match at our home from thousands of kilometers? I was also curious to know, how airplanes can fly in air or ship floats and running on water. As explained by my teachers, the answer was ‘Technology’. Then I understood that these technologies can be learnt through engineering, which made me to pursue engineering.

After engineering, I joined as a Trainee R & D engineer at Pune and became part of 12 channel data logger development team. That was my first chance of implementation of my favorite subject microprocessor (Z80). Later, I shifted my focus in academics and joined as a Lecturer at Radio Electric Institute (REI), Lamington road Mumbai. Here, I got a chance to teach my favorite subject namely, Digital electronics and Microprocessor. Here I witnessed the development of microprocessor-based LED Rolling display, Height-Weight proportion indicator on microprocessor kit for commercial purpose and prize-winning project- character message display on analog oscilloscope.

After joining VIT in 2009, I took admission for masters and completed ME in Electronics engineering. I have taught many different subjects in my carrier such as Analog and Digital ICs, Digital Electronics, Basic Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Microprocessors, Microcontrollers, Embedded Systems, Operating systems, Optical fiber communication and so on.

Being the Convener of ISTE committee with support from our Management, we started ISTE Students Chapter with Institute Life Membership. Every year student committee members conduct various activities like membership drive, seminars, technical workshops, technical quiz and competitions, talks on project report writing and technical paper writing and much more. As the Convener of Student Technical Council, I always encourage students to think differently, plan innovative ideas and enrich the council performance. In this regard, our Management is always ready to provide all kind of instant support; about quality planning, execution, and also post execution of such activities.
