Apart from research, I engage in various other pursuits during my free time. Some of my miscellaneous activities.
Research has the potential to change the ways we think and act in political, social and cultural life. But what privileges and responsibilities are linked to working at the forefront of human knowledge? The Thought Leaders Programme as a part of the Oxford Character Project brings postgraduate students together in a diverse learning community to consider the purpose of their research.
I love outdoor activities. I am always up to go for a jog or a hike. I have won several medals in badminton, swimming and volleyball competitions at intra-college, inter-school and inter-club levels.
The Student Counselling Program of NIT, Rourkela is designed to provide academic, emotional and financial support to fresh-man year students. As a coordinator of the program, I oversaw a team of 120 mentors in their senior year, and ensured smooth functioning of the program. I myself mentored and guide 7 mentees in all aspects. I also tutored freshmen year students on C Programming.
I believe that it is important to give back to society what society gave us. To achieve that end, I am always eager to help the poor and needy and was a member of the Rotaract Club of NIT, Rourkela.
