Most Rewarding Moment
Banking is a dynamic business where risk and opportunities exists side by side. Risk management is a very interesting subject that I teach our post graduate students.

I feel happy when the banks use my teaching techniques and live cases in their skill development and improve practices. I also teach research methodology in banking and finance and mentor the students to conduct applied research in the problem solving area.

Students are the future of this nation. They bring new ideas, thoughts and powerful energies to convert these ideas in to an action. The government should spend money to provide not only basic education but also skill development courses and provide job opportunities within India. Government also should check the academic standard of schools and colleges. Teachers should be encouraged to give more time to the students in their class teaching sessions. There should be increased access of education loans for the needy & deserving students at a lower cost.
