Skills:

Acting as change agent in an esteemed Institutions and help the bureaucratic minded   employees realize their potential, using simple motivation strategy 

1. Acting as a transforming agent to introduce new concepts in Government such as Air Car, Solar Energy utilization, Renewable sources which were performed by me.

2. Design of new ideas and concepts are leads to build a good Nation.

3. I can take the oath to encourage the unemployed Engineering Graduates and make them as good citizens of India.

4. I would like to renovate the Technical Education System as a Strongest System in India.

 

Message

Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man 

You cannot make or build the nation by just bricks

You have to ignite the rejuvenate minds of young people , then alone can the nation building take place
