Degree that I recommend
Degrees/Certification in the field of Intellectual Property Rights has become a need in the domestic as well international market. A well trained resource is an asset to the company.
Influenced by
Obviously my parents have played very influential role in my life. They have shaped my thinking and imbibed kind heartedness and self esteem. My high school teachers too deserve a mention here for they have encouraged me to participate whole heartedly in every field.
My achievements
In my high school days we were grouped into four different houses and I was made the house-captain of the red house. Each house included the higher primary and the high school students which meant pupils from the grade 5 to 10. During the actual sports event, I was the captain of the football team, the basket-ball team and the volleyball team. We won all the major sports events that year under my captaincy. I also remember I appeared for the Drawing Board Examination which was not the part of school syllabus and passed with first class that year. I even got a prize in the inter-school drawing competition. I played for the inter-school football tournaments and later during my law graduation took charge to form and represent the college football team in the inter-collegiate tournaments. Law college never had a football team for years and I formed one. I got enrolled in the National Cadet Corpse and had my A certification.

I am keen about manners and etiquettes too.
My family background
We are a family that believes in customs and traditions. We are a joint hindu family and act collectively. Agriculture is the main source of income for the family. Almost all members in the family are graduates and the young ones including me work in different MNC's. The family has played a vital role in the development of the region by taking to establish a sugar factory.
