Success Mantra

My most cherished memories include making friends for life, the time I spent at my hostel and my wing (Champs), my DD2K batch and 5th year of dual degree program. All of those years have been instrumental in inculcating the desire to innovate and in infusing confidence in me to achieve anything. Publishing research paper on DDP thesis and winning PAF when I was General Secretary of my hostel (H-3) are among experiences that I will treasure for life.
