My brief description
I am Prasanna Venkateswaran, an Engineering graduate who has been sailing on the colossal ship called INFOSYS across the Ocean of IT Services for 2.5 years.

I have been functioning as Test Engineer who investigates and validates the working of web application which is a part of Banking domain.

To answer your third part of question, present work culture demands everyone to take the role of Leader as Leadership is nothing but taking Responsibilities. I am responsible for my actions.

Challenges in job
Effective Analysis of Requirements and framing Test scenarios are two big challenges for every Tester. And I am not an exception; therefore I embrace these challenges which provide torrent of ideas to show brilliance at work.

Job made easy
Someone said “All things are difficult before they are easy”. But if you are wildly passionate about the work you do and incredibly committed towards it then nothing could stop you from reaching Success. To put it in nutshell, in my field I am addicted to Software Testing.
Upcoming Trends
Data mining and Knowledge Discovery are emerging trends in Computer Science field. In coming years, Scope for Testing in Data mining would be widened in the IT Spectrum ,since Data Mining is futuristic approach  
India strategy towards technical development
Basically, everyone needs to understand that “Error in action is Mistake and Error in intention is wrong” . So, there are few gaps prevailing in current business trend that need to be bridged by new generation entrepreneurs to achieve Authentic Success.

My goal
To become an inspiring leader and then primarily to create many leaders. Need of the hour is producing effective leaders.

Advice to professionals
Common myth floating around Software testing is “It is boring and anyone can do it”. It is absolutely not so, in my point of view .Testing is FUN because it improves one's Analytical ability to think beyond the gamut . It generates creative thinking attitude which you never thought that you possess.
Advice to students
The Greatest asset in the world is TIME. I would like to suggest my young brothers and sisters to use their Time EFFECTIVELY during college days. Those days are not boomerang which you can expect to come back to you. It will whiz by quicker than you could imagine. So Learn, Enjoy and Have Fun.
