More about myself
The future depends on what we do in the present hence we need to be a good planner & equally good executor , Planning without execution is a boat without oars.

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude

The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.

Qualities needed to become a successful leader
Most great leaders do not become great by chance. It takes a certain type of individual to become a great leader and there are several things that all great leaders have in common. These things are essential leadership qualities that are required for leaders in all areas of life.

Mindest , Ethics , Integrity , Team Building , Strong Communication skills , Innovative thinking .
Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty and industry. Don't take too much advice — keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world.

Important lesson learned
Have faith in GOD , work with honesty , Completely own the job which you are responsible for & no one can stop success coming your way.

Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself.
My role model
Swami Vivekananda for all his teachings he had shared , quoting few of his quotes :-

You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
My strongest skill

Dedication towards work

Passion to drive change

Thoughts on Education system of our country
Education in INDIA should be focused more on actual case studies from real life & industry enviornment this will help students to be more efficient dealimg with various issues , which probably they have never read in the books during their academics.
Initiative to develop a country
India, a developed country by 2020 is not an easy task. India has to keep in check the Population, corruption and pollution and and will have to improve the infrastructure. It must also improve social structure and invest more on security. To quote China as an example is that they demolished an old building to construct a very big port to meet future demands, but India is still waiting for things to happen. India in the recent past has improved a lot in the foreign exchange reserves, outsourcing business and in exports too. The profits gained are to be spent for the development of the welfare of the country. Most of the foreign companies are ready to do business in India because of the individual prowess of manpower which will give fast, quality output in a short span. India’s vision for a brighter path will come true not only by mere words or speech, but extra effort needed at all levels to overcome the pitfalls. Practical session is a requisite rather than fruitless theoretical dial
