Couple of years from now
As a Research Scholar cum lecturer. I would write on various contemporary issues. I prefer all the academic activities.
My family background
I have two brothers and a sister. My father is a retired Government employee. He was working as a Line Inspector in Tamil Nadu Electricity Board. My mother is a home-maker. We have our own house.
Important lesson learned
I have various experiences. I am interested in sharing my research and personal experiences. I am also interested in sharing inter-personal and intra-personal experiences.
Influenced by
MY father is a source of inspiration for me. He came up in his life from a vary humble background to the much respected position. He speaks very less but always very active. He is good at handling any issue in which he has no previous experience.
Thoughts on Education system of our country
I like this question so much.The education system of India is in need of talented teachers and researchers. We are in lack of potential scholars. We need more professional workers. But the output of the country, though huge in number, lack required qualities. We have more employment opportunities but a very few qualified candidates. We have to concentrate on school curriculum and college syllabi which teach present generation. Apart from planning with sophisticated technologies we should also improve the administrative capacities of the institutions. We need strong personalities to implement any strategic plan.Technology plays an important role in transforming the dream into reality. Each one of the educational institutions should have modern equipments to teach students and scholars.
Ensuring success
I am conscious about everything I do. I take my personal experiences as a lesson which can not be taught from any institution. I make sure to learn something new everyday. I always consider various alternatives to a single issue. I am contemplating on to find solution to various problems of everyday life. I meet people of various characters. I prefer some persons who exhibit characters of my own.
Degree that I recommend
I would recommend a Doctorate of Philosophy in my subject. A well researched scholar can always shine in any field. Apart from earning a doctorate I would suggest to get certificates on computer and foreign language.
Qualities needed to become a successful leader
A person should have enthusiasm and penchant for handling people. He/she should have multiple character within. They should find a viable solution to everyday issues.
He/she should improve their Personality. They should convince their peers and colleagues to cooperate in implementing their plan.
There are other qualities which help to be successful.To be a successful leader is nothing but attracting everyone in his/her vicinity.Here, physical attraction plays a minimal role. On the other hand mental caliber plays a significant role. We are judged by what and how we think, speak and act. Therefore, right way of thinking along with right way of speech and of course much desired way acting would definitely win cooperation of any stranger.
Important decision

I have decided to work hard no matter what my distractions.
I have improved my self-confidence.

I work so hard to achieve any target. My attitude towards stranger has always brought me cooperation. I understand the mindset of my employers and colleagues. I use this as a stepping stone to maintain good relationship.
My achievements
