I would like to introduce myself as a person with a technical aptitude and a keen interest in management. My fascination towards management started during my years at engineering college. This is where I was introduced to courses like operation research, engineering management, project planning and cost estimation and total quality management during my years at engineering college. I gradually started realizing that these courses were of great interest to me.
It was during a project in the final year of my engineering that I got an opportunity to put my theoretical knowledge into practical use.

On the extra curricular activities side, I have been an organizer of a National Level Technical Symposium, ‘FLAMOYER 05’ that gave me an opportunity to bring out my leadership potential. I led the Tack Together and Designers Mind panel, the two most prestigious events of the Technical Symposium, which went on to become a grand success. Now at Vazhai, an NGO that strives to provide equal education to school students at remote parts in Tamil Nadu, I have had the pleasure of being a teacher to school children. At Vazhai we put hours to try and find ways to make it simple for children to understand various subject. Every time I have been tested for my leadership quality, team playing ability, etc...All these experiences brought out my potential to be a leader and enhanced my communication and interpersonal skills
