  • What are your interests?
    listening to forever mesmerizing kirtan (especially classical, my day doesnít start without it) going to the unexplored extremes of my creativity through adobe photoshop, and feeding the gadget freak in me

    Helping people, whether I know them or not, in whatever is possible for me because the satisfaction I get from it is inexpressible and I can't simply live without doing this..

    I travelled a lot in college, from basement to top floor, from lab block to new block, countless times a day..hehe.. and seriously I loved it


  • Did you pursue any further studies?
    well... planning for GRE within next couple of years.. hope I get time to prepare for it


  • How was your college life?
    GTBIT has transformed me. I was able to discover the hidden treasure within me. The company of great friends I got in college here is the biggest asset of my life.. and I am thankful to god that I am still in touch with almost all of them.. but for those who arenít I will cherish those days all my life..


  • Who was your first crush?
    You mean in college..? because I wonít like to talk about school time because she almost crushed me... I very well remember the beating I got from her boyfriend.. ahhh it still pains.. ;) ya back to college... well I must admit that there were many crushes in college but the first serious crush that I had is with me now :)


  • Would you like to share some of your most memorable moments in the college?
    That of staying back in college all night long during gates and that of listening to dilbagh singing shabad in raag malhaar... these moments will always be on the golden pages of my life


  • Which ones were your favorite classes?
    microprocessor classes of Atul Kohli sir.. I never missed them... they were so interactive and enthralling that I used to miss them on the weekends


  • How did it feel to be a member of technical society?
    No words can describe how it felt to be a part of the very awesome tech team of GTBIT.. The out of the box ideas of Tushar, daily freaky scoops by Achal, learning experiences by Vineet sir, sponsorships by Nirmal & Amar.. and last but not the least long hours of talk with Harleen.. always ready to eat my head with her endless crap.. (I seriously miss it now).. Well besides the fun part I learnt how to work under real pressure while I was in core team of GATES and its really helping me now.. the technologies and new things I learnt while in TSG are an asset for me..


  • How was the experience of being a founder member of divine circle?
    It was a dream come true.. It is one chapter of my college life which I will cherish till my last breath. It gives me profound satisfaction when I look back to those days when we all worked together to keep us on the Spiritual Path and learned the values of selfless service through Sewa.

  • What has been your vision in life?
    To try my best to devote my body and soul to the service of humanity ; striving harder each day to bring a smile on another face ; to fight with my own thoughts 24x7 to ensure that I never refrain from the motive for which I was born as a human


  • How did you overcome the challenges you have faced so far and what qualities
    helped you overcome the hurdles?

    I have no qualities of mine. As long as my faith in God is unshaken, the challenges seem sweet and the hurdles donít get into way.


  • What message do you want to give to your juniors?
    Do anything you want to do, enjoy life to the fullest but never do anything which makes you feel why you did it.


  • Would you like to say a few words for your alma mater?
    Well, some things are beyond words and some things are better left unsaid.
