Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'
Providing services to the products is also a big challenging task. Almost all the MNCs look forward to Indian market when it comes for providing support and services to their developed products. Even the enhancement tasks for already developed products are coming our way. We have started and will soon be gaining confidence in making big tech products.

Challenges faced in job
It is a big challenge for me to be a part of telecommunication domain as I am even not much aware of basic terminologies involved. So gaining knowledge about it. Also, the new emerging feature additions to the existing techologies and learning the implementations with it.

Always stay focused in whatever you approach. Try to seek help from the senior people as it will help u a lot in gaining the best approach towards the work you are getting into.
Be motivated, Accept whatever comes your way instead of not playing any role.
