About Me
A keen electronics engineer loaded confidently with the artillery of managerial skills, I have always been passionate about improving processes and generating new ideas.

Q. What have you done at your Post-Grad/Business School/Undergrad level that makes you stand out from the crowd?

It is the sheer variety of activities that I feel makes for a unique profile. We have won 1st runner-up at the inter-college fashion show competition last year. Also, during graduation, we won Special Recognition at the inter-college dance competition. I have regularly performed in street plays, dance, drama and fashion shows. I am a freelance cartoonist. My regular satirical cartoons are appreciated by all on campus and outside and I am happy to say that when it comes to creativity, stage activity, design or acting, I am the Go To person for many.

I have also held positions of critical responsibility as the Secretary of Media and PR Committee at IIM-I. I have also been the coordinator for the Digital Creatives Team for our annual management and cultural fest IRIS. Previously, I have handled finances as treasurer and also headed a team of 20 as Jt. Secretary, Fine Arts for all activities at the undergrad level. 

Some of the projects that I have taken up are: (1) Conceptualized and developed an Automated Image painter (2) Developed a multilevel Brick Breaker game (3) Developed an algorithm to solve any 9×9 SUDOKU. (4) Created illustrations for the NRLM program by Government. (5) A Go To Market Strategy for new products for a company

Q. If you were the Prime Minister of India, what would be the one problem that you would solve. Please explain your reasons.

What you will read next may seem absurd. It isn’t.

It can be easily proved that the root cause of all problems of India is over population. Yes, it is. And hence, it may sound rather silly that I am not talking about solving the problem of corruption, farmer suicide, education, cleanliness, peace, GDP, security, food or water. The best way to touch upon all these problems and resolve them for good is to control population in India. It is a long term goal, a drastic measure and not politically correct. Nonetheless, it is the most effective way out today.
