Degree that I recommend
My strongest skill
Technical Deep-Drives
Initiative to develop a country
Individually contribute by educating the youth of India. Today a qualified professionals are moving into industry, you have less qualified people educating the youth. This decreases the quality of knowledge they get which would impact innovation for tomorrow's India
My achievements
In all the organizations I have worked, I either received a STAR performer or was a part of STAR performing team
Important decision
Never ever give up !
My family background
I come from Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. I am from a middle class family and am the only child to my parents. My father was a Cashier at Bank of Baroda and he always supported my education strongly.

I recall my father's saying, knowledge is the only asset that can never be taken from you so try to gather as much as you can till you can take it.

I am settled down in Bangalore with my wife and kids (a son and a daughter).
Thoughts on Education system of our country
The education syllabus is growing in India but the education quality that is going to the brains has decreased drastically. If you observe though the later generations are learning new things their analytical skills are decreasing due to alternatives where they don't think much but use google.

At the same time, we don't have opportunities on cutting edge domains and so people try to find alternatives and leave India.

I did my education to do research and innovate some thing to my home land but after I did my M.Tech it was tough to get into research due to the reservation quotas. I wasn't able to get a job in my domain and so I learned IT and moved into this.

All the skills and technology I learned is of no use to both me and my nation.
Influenced by
My Chemistry lecturer Mr.Rama Shastry in my Graduation while at Andhra Loyola College. I had done my M.Sc Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry and later an M.Tech in Plastic Technology. I was a person who was scared of Chemistry, he was the ONE who taught me about how to face scary things in life which helped me to pursue M.Sc.
Brief description about me
Well, I am no special but a normal person who did his entire education in India with the pace of joining my school at the age of 3 yrs and finished my M.Tech at the age of 23 yrs.

I did my schooling in NSM Public School after which my PUC was at Vikas Residential College. Post my PUC I wasn't able to go to neither medical nor engineering. My father who was Ex-Defence (IAF) was against the donation system and he insisted to go with what you are worth for. Later I did my B.Sc from Andhra Loyola College and later my M.Sc from Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyala, Indore. After doing my M.Sc, I did my M.Tech at CIPET, Ahmadabad with all India rank.

Fortunately I was always through the entrance process which was on the competitive edge. Wasn't able to get a good opportunity in my native domain and so I moved to IT. Been working from past 12 Yrs in this domain in various organizations like Trigent, Aol etc.

I still miss the reason for which I educated my self in Organic Chemistry and Polymer Science
My role model
I never had a role model seeing whom I grew in my career. But before we are professionals we are all humans and we should care for each other.

Few of the role models from whom I learned are Bill Gates and Melinda Gates, Jackie Chan.

I remember a statement from Jackie Chan where he says that he is not going to give his hard earned property to his kids and he says "If they are worth it, they can make it by themselves. If they are not worth it they can neither save it". He contributed his entire property to the Gates Foundation who does a great and generous jobs.

Every person who cares for others and the society is a ROLE MODEL for today's youth. You care for each other, you grow together.
Ensuring success
Update myself with the coming up innovations and technologies
Important lesson learned
Yes, there are a few
1) Never Ever Give Up
2) Start Thinking Innovative, Googling decreases your analytical skills
3) Hard Work has its fruits
4) Keep your self updated on to the EDGE
Qualities needed to become a successful leader
First and foremost is that he/she should have the capability to lead, stand for others and support them in their growth path.

In today's world, I see many leaders are not worth their positions as they do not come by facing all the odds. They grow by other ways of support from superiors.
