Introspections...

 

There are two ways in which we learn in life. One is by our own experiences, and the other is through others' experiences. Also, there are primarily two kinds of questions: one that others ask you and the second type being the ones that you got to ask yourself. The second category of questions are very crucial in shaping our life. The question and its timing are equally important. Listed below are a set of questions with answers, hope you enjoy reading it!

My Career Progression

Back to the list of questions

I began my career with a decision to follow my heart. It was a very tense evening when a bunch of students were waiting at the placements section of the National Institute of Techology, Rourkela, were waiting to hear the results of the first company in campus - and mine was the first name to be announced. The world looked more beautiful, but I joined IIT Bombay as a Research Associate - I loved Control Theory and got an opportunity at IITB to work on Wind Turbine and Engine Control. It was like working in a small startup and I was a team member involved in setting up the Engine Control lab in the Mechanical Engineering Department. I was hand picked by the GM (R&D) of TVS Motor, where I was involved in the first indigenously developed fuel-injected bike in India. I moved on to General Electric to add a global touch to my capabilities and continued work in clean engine technologies. Two years later, I landed at the Mercedes-Benz R&D India. My roles in these organizations has been that of an individual contributor and a mentor.

Other than conventional work...

Back to the list of questions

During the first year of my engineering, I got the Junior Scientist Fellowship of KVPY, from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I was one out of four folks selected from all over India. This opened the doors of the prestigious IITs to me, and I regularly visited IIT Kharagpur and IIT Bombay to carry out newer experiments and understand technology which was a bit distant from my own peers at my college. I involved myself in student activities such as being the Class Representative of the Mechanical Engineering batch and being the General Secretary (G-Sec) of my Hostel. Being a G-Sec taught me a lot of new things. (You can have a look at this blog post here.) I was also involved in flood relief work during the aftermath of the '99 super cyclone in Orissa. Apart from these kind of work, I started an Engineering Services company, while at IITB. It was fully self funded and I contributed towards business development from scratch. It went on till one of the three founders accepted a Master's admit at Stanford University and the second one opted for a Doctorate at IIT Bombay. The experience taught me how to look beyond the normal vision and see the broader aspects of idea implementation. I continued my startup related efforts and was shortlisted at the pan - IIT 2007 conference for my idea of an oscilloscope in a mobile phone. I am an active volunteer for Headstart.in and regularly contribute to the organization of Startup Saturdays in Bangalore. I teach underprivileged children at Bangalore, with a organization called Friends Children. You can also look at some of the other social intiatives taken by me in a blog post here.
