familial background has helped me to be what I am today. My father being a post
graduate from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, I have been one of the
most fortunate persons to have known the importance of questioning theoretical
concepts learnt and to accept its correctness only upon proper reasoning. Also,
at a very early age I came to know the importance of understanding the reasons
behind any methodology before forming any opinion about it. This made me to

Physics which involved proper reasoning behind any theory or any lemma. I was
motivated to do several simple but innovative projects in Physics which got

experience of working in a team. My first opportunity to lead a team came when

tournaments. This experience helped me grow as a leader capable of motivating
and leading a team to perform to the best of its potential.

my undergraduate studies, I moved to another state and with it I was able to
experience a vast change in culture. It presented a challenge in itself to cope
up with different patterns of study and different tastes of people. I have also
been an integral part of the National Service Scheme of our college which has
given an invaluable facelift to my character as a whole by providing
experiences of serving the needy. In my first year I participated in the annual
camp conducted as part of this scheme. Then, during my second and third years
at college I led a team which conducted the annual camp. As part of the camp we
organized medical awareness program. I, with my involvement in social
activities, was able to inspire others in my team by demonstrating that even a
physically challenged person can be of help to the society.

people in my country and it has helpeds me in shaping my thought process to
