My curiosity in the engineering stream took roots during my formative years as my family has been associated with this field for over two decades. My maternal grandfather retired as a Chief Engineer, my father is employed as Senior Foreman, Aramco and uncle, as an Executive Engineer. Their achievements in respective domains motivated me to pursue my career in a challenging field and persuaded me to study Mechanical engineering; the field of my choice at my under graduate level.

Sterling performance in my senior secondary exams (93.6% tenth grade and 80.2% twelfth grade) enabled me to pursue my studies at Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, a premier institute ranked amongst the top ten in India. I selected to study at the Dubai campus of the institute as I felt that the global exposure that I would gain from there would be of immense importance to me. I completed the course B.E (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering in 2013 and was awarded CGPA of 7.77/10. I now aspire to do Master’s Program in Industrial Engineering.

During my under graduate course, my firm grasp of basic sciences such as physics,  mathematics, chemistry and  mechanics etc. facilitated me immensely to appreciate fundamentals of variety of subjects covered in the curriculum. I gained knowledge in subjects like Fluid Mechanics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Production Techniques and Machine Design. I focused more on learning about Product Design, Manufacturing Engineering, and Design for Manufacturing, Fracture Mechanics, and Computer Aided Design. I learnt AUTO-CAD and PRO-E software. My under-graduate study has laid a strong base which will certainly help me understand and analyse the concepts involved in Industrial Engineering curriculum.

As my course progressed, I made the best use of the opportunities and training programs that I associated myself with. After completing my first year at college I got shortlisted for a consultancy project at IIT Bombay for conceptual design and CAD modelling of “Leaf Cutting Machine”. In sophomore year, I completed internships at Schlumberger, Saudi Arabia and at ABAN Offshore Drilling Ltd.Sharjah, UAE. In my third year I finished four weeks industrial project at ONGC Uran refinery, Mumbai.

In third year in college, I undertook design and modelling of “Non-Working Model of Stirling Engine” a project related to Production Techniques. Entire work was carried out in the college workshop by using in-house machines and tools. My final year project was Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) based wherein I demonstrated Micro mirrorusing CATIA software suite and analysed it for different parameters in COMSOL. A prototype was also made in the college workshop and a simulation was presented.

In my final semester, I undertook a six month practice project related to Engineering, Procurement and Construction of 4.75/4.2 MW Waste Heat Recovery Power Plant of Star Cement, U.A.E based on Kalina Cycle, second such project in the world in the cement industry. I successfully assisted in the estimation of consumables and manpower required for the project. I also associated myself with condition monitoring and vibration analysis of critical equipment of 7500 TPD Clinkerization unit. After graduation Star Cement conscripted me as Graduate Engineer Trainee (Technical) and during my tenure I executed four Kaizens related to cost cutting and systematic improvement in the power plant.

Apart from academic I was correspondingly interested and passionate about co-curricular activities. I directed a team of four and designed a Low Budget Remote Controlled Hovercraft using recyclable material and participated in TECHNOFEST 2011 (Working Model) event. I was A Runner Up in the Business Leadership Challenge 2012 held at BITS, Pilani. I participated in Business Process Simulation Workshop conducted by Prof. Dilbagh Singh Broca, XLRI Jamshedpur and an eminent author of 23 refereed papers.

The experience gained in Power Plant engineering project at Star Cement was exceptional in several ways. Working on Waste Heat Recovery Power Plant provided me with the opportunity to achieve hands on experience in domain of Optimization of Processes or Systems – how to minimize cost and maximize throughput. It acted as a catalyst for me to start thinking about the broader domain of Equipment Optimization, Operating Procedures and Control Optimization. Analysis of Plant layout and Material Handling System made me understand the essence of Supply Chain Management (SCM) and the necessity to plan and manage an efficient SCM system to support free movement and storage of raw materials, maintain optimum work-in-process inventory and dispatch of finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. I was extremely thrilled by the experienced gained in the project and turn out to be more enthusiastic to further explore the dominion of Industrial Engineering.

The choice of Master’s Program is closely linked to my interest in the field along with emerging industrial scenario in India. The government of India through its policy and regulatory initiatives has embarked upon massive drive to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and make India a “Manufacturing hub” on global landscape. Pickup in FDI is already happening. Japan and China have recently announced investments to the tune of 35 billion USD and 20 billion USD respectively over a period of next five years. Fitch ratings in its September 2014 edition of Global Economic Outlook has stated that “India will be the only BRIC country where growth picks up in 2014 to 5.6% and accelerates further to 6.5% in 2015 and 2016, owing to an expected upgrading in the business environment”.

I contemplate the proverbial “If Winter comes, can spring be far behind?” holds worthy in the context. Intensification in investments is likely to spur industrial growth. Hence, I foresee an enormous scope in the field of Industrial engineering and challenge to grapple with for Indian industries, namely – to optimize scale, processes or systems, implement State of the art engineering tools and practices to achieve efficiency in usage of resources and global competitiveness on price front for the manufactured goods. The goal can be accomplished by implementation of operations research, optimization of complex processes or systems, equipment, energy, materials, logistics to name a few. I sensibly chose Master’s Program in Industrial Engineering as it will offer me the opportunity to equip myself to discover innovative solutions to challenging problems. On successful completion of the program I aspire to pursue my career as Consultant and desire to contribute meaningfully to industrial sector.

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill said it all in just few a words about social responsibility.  I am overwhelmed by the message. Social responsibility is a duty every individual must embrace and I am determined to uphold it in earnest.

The Master’s Program offered by University of Southern California will make an opportunity available to me to learn state of the art technologies, access vast pool of technical resources and gain from the experience of faculty which will enable me to accomplish my career goal.

Engineering field is the legacy which has been forwarded to me by my Grandfather who acquired success to become an efficient engineer out of a number of hardships. My attentiveness in the field of Civil Engineering rose because of my father, sharing his day-to-day work experience and various developments required for the society, as an Executive engineer in MCGM (Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.).

In the first year of my Diploma course I was familiarized to the basic mechanics, design, environment etc. which I started enjoying thoroughly; consequently, I decided to go in for Environmental Engineering as my major in engineering.

Although my undergraduate studies acquainted me with the basic concepts of Environment engineering, but yet, the fundamental knowledge of how such large quantity of waste and hazardous materials are effectively managed by organizations has always fascinated me.

I have also experienced the various glitches encountered by people concerning environmental impacts such as sewage disposal, solid waste management, recycling of plastic and other hazardous substances, Air-water-soil pollution, which is one of the major crises and requires an effective management of disposal, are some of the major factors that provoke me to proceed with environment as my major field.

While I was pursuing Diploma in Project planning and management, environment has always been my strength because I always enjoyed exploring about it. While I began studying this subject, I recognized that there is indeed a great necessity for me to expand my awareness in this subject and I could also perceive a comprehensive scope in this field.

My classmates used to seek assistance from me in their studies covering various topics such as designs, environment, etc viagra a paris. as they found it tranquil to solve word problems, but struggled when it came to understanding theory concepts.  They said, “You helped us a lot and taught us the concept of theory studying which made us solve and interpret questions more effectively”. When I proceeded to my graduate college I acquired an opportunity to study this subject in more meticulous manner and had graduated with flying colours.

I have completed my final year project on the topic of environment itself namely “Water Utility System for Sarswati college of engineering” (Both grey and rain water), the project was undertaken for my graduate college and the faculties were so mesmerized by my work that they had recommended to put the project to use as it was cost efficient, very eco-friendly and durable.

I also prepared a power point presentation on the project topic which was incalculably appreciated by the staff and was also brought up in the list which were first hand projects, that is, it was taken up for the first time and  both the principal and the HOD(Head of department of civil engineering) gave regards and appreciated the work.

The reason why I believe that Masters Study in a reputed department, like yours, is imperative since the goal I am obliged to achieve requires a modus operandi such as yours. Firstly, working for a branch like Environment engineering which is indeed a subject with massive scope and immense knowledge which requires appropriate and efficient guidance.

A person possessing quality knowledge on the topic of environment is required and this purpose of mine is fulfilled under your University standards. Secondly, the rudimentary knowledge that I possess concerning environment is very strong and basically I have developed this along the course of my education. Field visits, experimentation in labs, reading blogs and books about environment have enhanced my visions towards betterment of the environment.

There is undeniably a lot to learn for me in this world and let this be my ways and means towards success in making the world a better place for each and every individual of this planet. I firmly believe that with proper guidance and assistance I can achieve my desired goals and make the university and my family proud and typically I would love to protect and maintain the ecological balance in the nature.

We have witnessed a remarkable growth and development of Embedded System and its applications. Perhaps the next decade will shape the technologies to take the present Information Age to Embedded System and its convergences with other system which will be portable or wearable. The Embedded System offers a boundless outlet for creative activity in invention, design and analysis.

Since my childhood, I was always fascinated about all the high-tech toys the big shops displayed. Since I never had enough money to purchase them, hence I always tried to build them myself.

Lack of knowledge and resources never allowed me figure anything successfully at that time, but it made me crave for more knowledge that could allow me to build similar things.

My parents being precisely supportive towards my interests always provided me different sources; from magazines like ‘electronics for you’ to some basic electronics starter kit, from where I could advance the knowledge. Through this proactive support, I was introduced to the vast field of electronics right from my young age.

Though not really skilled through formal trainings, I could easily create simple working models like remote controlled race cars, walky-talkies on the electronic circuitry using rudimentary components and tools. However, it helped me develop my skills of handling tools and construct models within the modest resources available.

As a part of supportive activities, my parents had introduced me to various pioneers and precursors in scientific and socio-cultural fields. The immense joy of creating very simplistic working models, which were most of the time approximate replica of the existing one, were enough for me to understand what the inventors like Alexander Bell, Thomas Edison felt when they created new stuff. With time, the craving for this un-satiated feeling grew and I knew that this is what I would love to do for my entire life.

“Engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems handily available, they will create their own problems.” It is that eminent inspiring maxim of Scott Adams which supports me to keep my focus on my aim even after some distractions which sometimes surround me and keeping this same apothegm in mind I entered college, I laterally with some of my likeminded friends formed a group called Society for uplifting of Robotics and Engineering (S.U.R.E.) for the students who were interested in the field of robotics.

There with the constant search for something to create or develop, we started to form various kinds of Robots, organizing events to educate the interested students and participating in competitions.  Being in-charge of Robotics and Programming, myself got totally into the field of Microcontrollers and Digital Electronics during all my all 4 years during Graduation in Engineering.

I was also convoluted in constructing different projects like Quad Rotor and Go-Kart. I used a blog to post information about these projects and tutorials as well. This helped us in getting feedback, particularly about the obvious mistakes novices normally make. During these times, we also stood third in ABU-Robocon India, which is a national level robotics competition.

The course I opted in my college had several subjects of my interest such as Embedded Systems and Real Time Operating Systems, Microcontroller Applications, Digital Electronics. I admit, though the scores I obtained in examinations are not too prodigious, I have thorough knowledge of all these subjects both theoretical and practical.

I have worked enough with electronics all these years, developing various projects, and now have the confidence and aptitude to design and develop any concept in a very little time so that if the resources are available, then Proof of Concept (PoC) can be demonstrated.

In all these years I have toiled a lot on platforms like AVR (Advanced Virtual RISC), PIC (Programmable Interface Controller) , ARM (Advanced RISC Machines) etc., but I crave knowledge, to understand all the technologies available. Therefore, by opting for the course of Embedded Systems, I am pretty indisputable that it will be a key to vast field of knowledge.

Today, Maker Culture is on its peak, lots of new products and concepts are getting introduced every day. Right now I am just a part of it. I do not want to be just one of this jamborees; I desire to be the active contributor for the thread of my interest and only way to do so is to excel in all the technologies and fields available.

I am very fascinated in studying at your University as it is one of the esteemed Universities in the field of Electronics Engineering. The courses as per my knowledge are up to date and will allow me to understand and learn the latest cutting age technologies. Also as per the information available on your Website and public domain, the Laboratories in your University are very well equipped; the faculty is highly experienced and is extremely supportive towards the students generic viagra online. So I know that decide on a course in your University will enhance my Value Framework and fulfill my Academic Craving making me better global citizen contributing to the inclusive policies.

The course I am selecting requires a lot of efforts and hard work and I assure you that I am well prepared and have necessary commitment, intelligence and stamina to meet your challenging standards. I am very enthusiastic to pursue my Masters at your treasured University and I am confident that it is going to be a well rewarding experience for me which will be the first step towards accomplishment of my goal.

I have had a strong interest in Aerospace Engineering ever since I was a child. This happened when I was in 7th standard. I read the Book “Wings of Fire: An Autobiography of APJ Abdul Kalam” written by Dr.Kalam and ArunTiwari. It was based on Dr achat viagra en belgique.Kalam’s early life, effort, hardship, fortitude, luck and chance that eventually led him to lead Indian space research and missile programs.

He is known as a Missile Man of India. This was the day when “A for Apple became A for Airplane” for me. This driving force developed into an interest in science and technology.

To nurture my interests, I worked hard to secure admission for an undergraduate program majoring in aerospace engineering at University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun which is rated as one of the best engineering colleges in North India.

In my undergraduate program, I learned broad aspects of aerospace engineering, which started with portions of maths and physics and then the application of the same in aerospace specific topics.

My undergraduate education has provided me with comprehensive background in aerospace technology that has kept me within reach of the latest developments.

The curriculum included all the basic courses like Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Aircraft Structures, Space Dynamics, Propulsion Systems, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

During my graduation, I carried out my final year project on “Study and validation of Aerodynamic forces on Cruise Missile using Catia and CFD”. This project has given me a great exposure to the world of Designing. It required extensive research in terms of designing a model and setting up conditions during analysis on CFD software.

Even I did my internship from college; Zeus Numerix Pvt Ltd in Pune for 2 months, where I worked on CFD software and carried out different validation cases to apply them properly on project “Aerodynamic analysis of Fighter Aircraft”. Eventually I developed a huge interest in Aerodynamics.

I joined the Fiat India Pvt Ltd after my graduation as a Graduate Engineer Trainee. Fiat is one of the leading companies in the automotive industry. I came across automobile and engine parts of the Punto car of the fiat. It was the most practical training, I had ever undergone.

In fact, this is something I have always desired to learn in aerospace industry but unfortunately I didn’t get an opportunity to learn this in India. This activates me to go for higher studies and pursue my MS in USA. I believe that by studying in a technologically advanced country like yours, I will be able to further enhance my knowledge.

As a widespread knowledge of computers is imperative for any engineer to be successful, I have taken computer and aerospace courses in C,

C++, Core Java, .Net and I am well acquainted with aerospace software’s namely Autocad, Catia, Ansys and CFD.

I would like to conclude with the reasons to apply in your esteemed university for my MS in Aerospace Engineering. After having gone through the details of the research facilities available at your university, I feel that they are necessary to my fields of interest and it is certainly the right place to embark upon my academic career.

I am fully aware that career in research and academic requires a high level of intelligence, dedication and a lot of sacrifice. I am confident that I would meet all the above demands and hence I appeal to the Graduate Admissions Committee to consider me for admission and financial aid.

Doctoral study is a significant milestone in the perpetual journey to education and the best exposure to this would be a worthy platform to prove the skills and knowledge that I have learnt. With due reverence to the department and the university, I pen down a ‘statement of purpose’. This statement is an endeavour to project my credentials as an aspiring researcher, my achievements as a biotechnology/biology graduate, my interest in this doctoral program and my ambitions.

I have always been a curious child, seeking reason and logic behind my observations of the world around me, and of the explanations put forth by others. I was drawn towards biology by my uncle who is a Doctor. He would regularly take me to observe surgeries in his hospital and explain various concepts to me. This subject has driven my curiosity, understanding it provides me a sense of fulfilment.

The dynamic nature of a living system fills me with wonder. It is astounding to see how open yet tightly controlled a biological system is, in order to maintain homeostasis. This is precisely why I would like to pursue a career in research, so that I can acquire new skills & knowledge and contribute to science.

My schooling and college education played a pivotal role in shaping my future. I had excellent facilities and faculty, which laid emphasis on fundamentals.

This fired my interest in academics and research and thus I have worked consistently towards this goal, with distinctions in my school exams and a Master’s Degree in Biotechnology from the Institute of Bioinformatics & Biotechnology, University of Pune, India. I am now looking forward to doing a Ph.D. and sense that the experiences in my life have been so far instrumental in getting me equipped to embark on this venture.

Firstly, the 5 Years’ Master’s program in Biotechnology has taught me to analyse various biological topics relevant to a problem systematically.

The comprehensive integrated 5-year program that I undertook taught me both theoretical and practical aspects of a variety of life science subjects such as molecular biology, cell biology, immunology microbiology, and genomics.

During this course I have pursued many projects, drawing upon the knowledge and skills that I acquired through classroom teaching as well as extensive practical training.

Among the projects that I undertook, the work I did on Drosophila to study the tissue-specific functions of a metabolic sensor in the regulation of metabolic homeostasis and organismal physiology has been the most fascinating.

This project was a part of my dissertation that I accomplished under the guidance of Dr.UllasKolthur, Dept. of Biological Sciences (DBS), Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, India from January 2013 to May 2013. In this project, I established a functional diversification between the head and abdominal fat body in Drosophila melanogaster.

I also evaluated the role of dSir2 in the head fat body in the regulation of metabolic homeostasis in an insulin signalling dependent manner. I customarily used techniques such as cloning, transformation and PCR in this project. This project has facilitated me understand the critical link between metabolic homeostasis and aging and hence the relevance of nutrient sensing pathways to study the same.

Previous to this exertion, I was selected for the prestigious national level Summer Fellowship Program, conducted by The Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, India, in the summer of 2011. As a result I had the good opportunity to work under the guidance of Prof. Nand Kishore, Department of Chemistry, an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India.

In this project I worked on the biophysical aspects of drug protein interactions. It abetted me understand the thermodynamics involved in the binding of drugs to BSA & Lysozyme and the physical chemistry underlying these interactions.

I used DSC, ITC, Fluorescence spectroscopy, CD spectroscopy and UV-vis spectroscopy to determine the physico-chemical parameters and correlate them to the structural consequences of changing a system from the free to bound state. The ligands selected for this study were Naproxen, Folic acid and CMP (Cytidine monophosphate).

I furthermore worked on a project, of one year duration, wherein I explored the signal transduction mechanisms by which flavones isolated from corn silk induce cell death in cancer cell lines under the guidance of Dr. Ayesha Khan, DST Young Scientist, Research associate, IBB, and University of Pune.

The project was titled, “Mitochondria Mediated Apoptosis Induced by Flavonoids Isolated from Corn Hair”,formed a part of the compulsory project in the 3rd year coursework (July 2010-May 2011). It was during this project that I developed a liking towards cancer biology.

I had the wonderful opportunity to present this work at Annual Conference in Biotechnology, IBB, University of Pune, and 19th April 2011, organized by IBB, University of Puneand at the Project competition organized by Pune Inter College Consortium (PICC) in March 2011.

Two other enlightening projects that I undertook while at IBB were “Hepatoprotective activity of two plants belonging to the Amaranthus and the Portulacaceae family and the evaluation of effect of food processing on anticancer activity of some common vegetables.

I also attended various conferences during my coursework at IBB. The Mini-Symposium on Cancer Informatics Analysis and Informatics of Microarray Data, Organized by NCCS (National Centre for Cell Science) and Department of Bioinformatics, University of Pune, on 14th September, 2012 aided me understand the strength of bioinformatics as a tool to study Cancer and other biologically relevant issues.

It helped me interact with various eminent scientists and doctors who were working in the field of genomics and transcriptomics. The discussion on their research works was very inspiring. The National Conference on Recent Trends in Biotechnology and Industry-Academia Interaction organized by IBB and Department of Microbiology, University of Pune, India on 8th -9th March 2010 was an enriching experience.

I was propitious to attend the 1st Science Conclave with Nobel Prize Winners organized by IIIT, Allahabad, India in December 2008. It was a boundless opportunity to meet the Nobel Laureates. I could perceive their passion for science and their work during the presentations and personal interaction sessions.

After completing my Master’s degree in May 2013, I decided to join the Biotechnology Industry to acquire a perspective on how biological research gets translated into drugs and therapeutics that are qualified for administration to patients. I was blessed enough to work as research intern in the bioassay group, R&D at Lupin Biotech Limited, Wakad, Pune, India from November 2013-April 2014.

Here I worked on cell proliferation and signal transduction assays to evaluate the potencies of certain bio similar drugs. Presently I am working as a Research Officer in the Dept. of Cell Biology, R&D, Quant immune Solutions Pvt Ltd, Navi Mumbai, India since June 2014. My work here involves Cell line maintenance and characterization; and the development of ELISA based techniques to perform PK-PD studies of certain drugs in clinical samples.

I also had the noble opportunity to study the affinity and kinetics of protein-protein interactions using surface Plasmon resonance. This has helped me understand the physiology of drug distribution and the various factors which play a critical role in aiding/inhibiting its action.

Apart from technical skills, I have always been an active student.  The various extra-curricular activities offered by my college sharpened other essential skills in me. I was part of the organizing committee for my college cultural fest and for the Science Day Program held in the Pune University.

I have been a member of the Editorial Board of school magazines and I found this different experience really fascinating. I have also had the privilege of teaching underprivileged children as a member of the student teaching committee of the “JAGRUTI” program. Along with all this, I have learnt to speak four languages and can write in three of them. My other interests include travelling, painting, music, cooking and reading.

All throughout my undergraduate and graduate career, I have equipped myself with participation in various technical symposiums attended seminars and have done projects across a spectrum of fields.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’

-Nelson Mandela

It is this philosophy that commended me to think exceedingly about education right from my young age.  And what other way there is to help change the world other than taking up Science.  In the past century, there have been unrelenting technological advances in the field of Science particularly in Biotechnology, which have created newer opportunities for growth.

I was introduced to the world of Biotechnology in my 12th standard.  ‘Cloning’ and ‘Gene therapy’ kindled my puerile passion and turned out my interests and curiosities into realities.  It was these initial curiosities that led me to pursue Biotechnology as my majors during my under graduation.  The basic unit of life-cell- and the various processes associated with it like replication, transcription and translation all intrigued me to follow my quest to learn more and more about this mysterious world of Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is the most upcoming field.   It has a ubiquitous presence across the world. Biotechnology is the field of future that is beneficial to the individual as well as the society.  I want to be an element of innovation in this field, which is creating a better tomorrow for everyone.  To do this, I need to arm myself with requisite knowledge which a graduate program can furnish.  I envision your university as the right stepping stone to pursue my dreams and achieve my career goals.

During my under graduation in D.Y.Patil University, I had been exposed to various fields like ‘Molecular Biology’, ‘Animal Tissue Culture’, ‘Bioinformatics’.  These areas provided me with a firm foundation and took me a step closer towards the fulfilment of my goal.  Through various seminars, symposiums and internships from renowned institutes and hospitals, I learnt various concepts of research and development.  This helped me become verse with the various technological advances in the field of science and expose growth opportunities in different dimensions.  These internships have made me verse with the practical experience of the real research that takes place.

My goal is to educate myself painstakingly through my M.S. program and proceed further on to a PhD in Molecular Biology.  This would help me to develop into a very worthy professional and prepare myself to take up research in my future.  Your university offers tremendous scope for research and excellent infrastructure, and I, therefore sincerely hope that by associating with your University, I will be able to give back in return as much as I will gain in my own knowledge under the tutelage of experts from the industry.

It will be a great privilege to me to acquire knowledge from your university and take a step towards achieving and fulfilling my goals. An M.S. in your university will definitely widen my horizons and I will make sure that I shall not disappoint you.

Thus, I earnestly request you to consider my application and give me an opportunity to prove myself.

My fascination for Medical science has not developed in a day or two rather I am considerate to become——-And the seed to become ———was seeded during my formative years. I vaguely remember how inadequate health education caused my grandmother succumbed to chronic renal failure. After seeing many more patients in similar plight, I realized how grievous the matter is. During my school days I came across the concept of prevention of disease which further sparked me to do something for the betterment of the ailing society. I have a great admiration for this profession and see the medical personnel as angels who resurrect the one who has lost all hopes to survive and that’s why I am obstinate to choose this respectable field as my career preference.

I sensed my dream transforming into reality when I was successful in getting admission in a medical school (Dr.D Y Patil Medical College, Nerul, Navi Mumbai).Though it was just a beginning to a journey which was long headed; giving a lucid idea of doing something for public health awareness. During this I came across the magnitude of medical knowledge which could not satisfy my carving to serve humanity. Meanwhile, in the third year I came across ‘Community Medicine’ a subject so unique and befitting for practical approach. It set my inclination towards public health management; the way, how planning and policy making can help to prevent a simple infectious disease. If we could spread awareness on this, each one of us could be on the healthier and safer edge.

Further polishing in this field was attained during my internship days when I learnt about the clinical trials and case studies. It showed how the genesis of disorder, risk factors and management were interlinked. The example was set by my experience during case study of psychiatry patients and family education and support along with the use of newer and safer technologies, drugs and research. My participation in mega health check-up left imprints of how much more we need to accomplish in general public awareness and management. For me, medicines showed a failure because of high cost of minor and essential surgeries, maternal malnutrition resulting in low birth weight neonate; a case like tuberculosis disease needed a far wider and scrutinized approach in preference to just serving the elitist orientation of medicine.

I am familiar that subjective statistics is by explanation questionable, I however have an adequate amount of personal and ancestral involvement through ailment which causes me to be strong supporter of the power of alternate treatments to melodramatically recover publics’ health. Old foreign drug undoubtedly has its place; nevertheless a person’s role in keenly handling his own wellbeing is undeniable. By advancing my expertise in the programme of public health management, I shall be able to learn more about the noble virtue of health administration and management. This programme will set a milestone to my journey and benefit me explore new health opportunities for tackling key constraints to development and research.

There is a great impetus of health development in your country and I have always been yearning to study at your academy with world class amenity and education. The highly developed and sophisticated methodology for teaching urged me to choose your distinguished university. The multidisciplinary programme provided here shall help to chisel my knowledge and experience.

To get admission in your prestigious university shall be a turning point in my life. I assure you that I will prove to be a beneficial and worthy intellectual to your university. Looking forward to get admission and meet the honourable faculty members and a chance to get the best of my career.

How to Ace your Job Interview: A Basic Guide

Job Interview

This article by Harish Desai explains how can one prepare for their job interviews in a basic manner. Read on for more information and insider tips and tricks.

Although, a lot of material has been written on this topic, still this is the most topical issue doing the rounds among job seekers. The main reason for this is the distinct lack of interview skills among both fresh graduates and experienced people.

However, it is surprising why job seekers should have complaints on this count. A number of initiatives are conducted at the university level in order to train fresh graduates to ace their job interviews.

In addition, with experience, seasoned professionals should master the art of excelling in their interviews. However, both the initiatives are yielding no results.

As far as the endeavor of training fresh graduates to attend interviews is concerned, they are not able to implement the principles taught during training, when they attend the actual interview.

As regards experienced people, they may be experts in their respective fields, but they lack soft skills necessary to ace interviews. This article is an attempt to present the tenets of excelling at job interviews.

The whole idea of this article is to create a supportive environment for applicants to get ideas, direction and guidance to solve problems and learn the skills to improve their job search and interview skills.

You have completed the difficult steps of writing out a detailed resume and a persuasive cover letter such that you have a chance to present your case to the interview panel.

The mere thought of appearing for an interview can cause goose bumps to many a seasoned campaigner. Applicants can experience mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety. Although, the excitement bit has to be tempered a bit, anxiety should be channelized in the right direction to mentally prepare for the interview.

It is best not to curb your excitement and enthusiasm. The most important intent of an interview should be to communicate to the hiring manager that you have the necessary skills to take up the job and handle it effectively.

The important question that a candidate needs to ask oneself is “What do the prospective employers want?”. Interviewers today look for candidates who not only fit the role, but who actually want to work for the company in question.

Conveying your enthusiasm for the position can be done through a series of real life instances, which will exhibit that you possess the skills necessary for the position in question. Speak about the pleasure and pride you took in overcoming obstacles.

Narrate stories to this effect. Such stories will show the interviewer what life will be after they take you in their team. You need to work on the perception of the interviewer about yourself.

These tips will not only give you confidence to master the skills of excelling in job interviews but will also help you in narrowing down your job search depending on your skills. Each individual is equipped with a certain set of unique skills, which he brings to the table and according to those skills, he is suitable for certain jobs and unsuitable for some others.

The onus of finding out what jobs he is fit for lies on the candidate wanting the job. A number of counseling centers today help the candidate in finding out the answer to the staple question. Which job should I take up based on my skills?

The answer to the above question should be found out before one takes up a course for graduation, at times, candidates take up wrong courses depending on certain practical considerations. When the reason why they took up those courses do not fructify, they are left high and dry.

Today, numerous examples of students exist who take up wrong courses based on the ease of getting a job in that field in future.

When they do not get the promised job, they are unable to secure a job in the open market because they do not possess the skills required to succeed in that particular profession. This leads to their disillusionment and subsequent frustration.

One thing the applicant needs to understand is that both the interviewer and the interviewee want the interviewee to get the job. The only thing the latter should do is show his best side to the former so that he sees the prospective candidate positively.

Before actually appearing for the interview, the applicant should research the company’s products, study their website and social media pages. He should also study the profile of the person who is likely to interview him. Next, the candidate should try to find if he has any common contacts with the interviewer.

The candidate should appreciate that every HR person would like to be safe in his hiring process and would like to recruit a person whom he knows either directly or indirectly.

Next the candidate should research the role he is being offered and how it will benefit the company he is being employed in. He should study current trends in the market in that field, collect information about the company from the media, study the specific technology in which the company specializes.

All this will show him to be a knowledge worker and someone who is on the ball when it comes to applying for the job. The candidate also needs to proactively ask questions about the job in question and about his growth prospects in the company. His questions will decide his interest level for a particular job.

Always report for the interview meeting 15 minutes in advance. Imagine, you have just one shot at the job and therefore, you do not want to muck up your chances by arriving late and panicking later. In case you are early, sit in your car, take a walk around the company to collect more information about its working style, or calm your nerves by brushing your fingers together.

Doing all this or some of this will help you answer the questions of the interviewer intelligently and will allow you to use your intelligence to get the job. Thus, acing a job interview is no rocket science and can be done with a little effort and enthusiasm.

GDP, Inflation and Budget: Why Are These Concepts Important?

Basic Financial Knowledge

This post illustrates the importance and usage of basic financial knowledge which includes concepts like GDP, inflation, and budget. Read on for more information in this sector!

GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT (GDP) – It is basically a monetary value of all the goods and services produced in a Country over a specific period of time, basically quarterly or yearly. GDP is used to monitor the standard of living of the people of the country, the country’s economic performance and also as a comparison on the international scale.

With the rise in actual GDP of a country, the savings rate of the people increases, their population takes a positive growth and the productive capability of the Country gets a huge boost.  With the knowledge of GDP, people can know the status of their country and also compare with other countries.

INFLATION – According to Economics, a consistent rise in the price level of most of the goods and services is called Inflation.  With the rise in the price level, people’s buying capacity decreases as the purchasing power of each unit of money takes a hit. Inflation rate is essential when calculating the price index which is the annual percentage change in the general price index. The opposite of inflation is deflation.

Price inflation means your purchasing power decreases. You are forced to pay more money for the similar amount of goods as before. While Income inflation means, there is a rise in your income and you are able to buy more.

028_armWrestle_OCTRESERVE BANK OF INDIA (RBI) – The Reserve Bank of India is India’s main banking institution. It controls the monetary policy of the country. It started working from 1st April, 1935 under the British Rule (Reserve Bank of India Act 1934). Initially it was divided into 100 equal shares, owned by private shareholders.  After India became independent on 15th August, 1947, RBI became nationalized on 1st January, 1949. Its current governor is Dr. Raghuram Rajan. RBI acts as the banker to the Government of India.

RBI affects our daily life through various policies –

  • Bank Rate – The RBI lends money to the commercial banks at a rate known as the Bank Rate.
  • Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) – Every commercial bank needs to keep a percentage of their capital at the RBI, which comes handy incase of bankruptcy.
  • Statutory Liquidity Ratio (LSR) – The commercial banks needs to keep a part of their capital in the form of cash, gold and other securities.

FINANCE MINISTER (FM) – The Finance Minister is one of the most important members of the cabinet. He heads the Ministry of Finance which controls the Fiscal Policy of our country. He presents the Union Budget at the Parliament which explains the Government’s policy on taxation and spending for the coming year.

Our first FM was Shri. R.K. Shanmukham Chttey. Our current FM is Shri. Arun Jaitley.

BUDGET – The Budget is the collective term given to the Government’s planning on expenditure and revenue. It is presented by the Finance Minister at the Parliament. Like in any other family, creating a budget helps you to keep track of the income and expenditures for the year. It will confirm that you will always have enough money for something important.

Common Signs of Dyslexia and The Road Ahead

Signs of Dyslexia

Signs of dyslexia turn out to be more understandable when children start school,and have to read and write. So how do you know if a child is dyslexic?

Here are some obvious signs by MyTrustedTutor.comto help you understand. But, not all children have the same problem. Though early involvement is helpful for dyslexia treatment, it’s never too late to ask for help.

Generally,the symptoms are noticeable in behavior, health, development and personality.  The child is sensitive to foods, additives, and chemical products. The youngster can sleep extra deep or light; bedwetting beyond appropriate age, with an unusually high or low tolerance for pain.

The will appear bright, intelligent, and articulate, but unable to read, write, or spell. For instance, miss out a letter, e.g. wich instead of which or, use the wrong letter, e.g. showt instead of shout.

For someone who can not trace why the difficulty, may call the child lazy, careless, immature. Some even think of it as a behavioral problem.

The child will have poor self-esteem, and would try to hide or cover up weaknesses. If parents keep a note of the activities the child takes interest in, they would understand that, the child will be talented in art, music, drama, story telling, sports, designing, etc.

Your child might seem to “Zone out” or daydream often, and the child faces difficulty in sustaining attention. Children with dyslexia will gain knowledge through hands-on experience, demonstration, conducting tests, visual aids, and observation.

 The child may complain of giddiness, headaches or stomach aches when reading. One of the most common problem is, confused by letters, words, sequence, verbal communication. There are repetitions in writing, additions, reversals in letters, transpositions, omissions, words, and yet strive for perfection.

There will be difficulty with vision, depth perception, but eye tests wouldn’t reveal the problem. But, the child will be exceptionally keen sighted and observant. The child also faces trouble in coordination; ambidextrous, and signs of confusion in left/right, over/under is noticeable.

A child with this disease, will think with images and feelings, and will hold strong sense of justice, emotionally sensitive. A dyslexic is child is likely to have lots of thoughts, and dreams, but they often do not know where to start.

It is imperative for parents to remember that, no two people with dyslexia are exactly the same, so any dyslexic young person is expected to have a mix of these signs of dyslexia.

But, we at, believe, that there is always a solution. Today a lot of researches are being done in the field to study the symptoms of the condition, and about ways to help children with dyslexia. You can make sure your kid gets the help that’s required in time.

Crafting a professional profile

At the beginning either students or parents who looking for a tutor.Possibly the first thing both of them will search for a good tutor profile. In this case your profile will beassisting the students whether to take tuitionfrom you or not. So it is very essential to optimize your profile in big banner.

In case you’re stick with an online platform, good profile should have a high quality, professional profile picture, flawless statements and crispy bio note.At this point you no need to worry about creating a profile; where else in our portal we help you to have an attractive profile.

High degree of Integrity

As a tutor you should be a complete package of good attitudes. For the reason you’re going to deal future generation students, without of your knowledge pupil will absorb teachers characters and behaviors. They will test you through insignificant routes before trusting you outright.

Being trustworthy is more important than anything else and subsequently it brings you the good name in society. Mutually parents and students expect this quality from every teacher.

Design detailed Intro 

On your sight the tutoring would be passion, profession and more. However in present competitive market others will put you in business zones. Accept it! At least for that reason you have to design a detailed intro.

Just I said Intro never think that, you have to give words by mouth, rather your profile should speak on it. Let’s see an example for clear indulgent:

Do’s - I am a native born English women and professional English tutor. I can teach IELTS, TESOL and other English competitive preparations. I have honors degree in English Literature with CELTA Certificate.  I specialized in Business English. 

Don’ts – I am a teacher for English please contact me!

Specialize yourself

Today personalization leads in all aspects of life events. Even students don’t want to spend their much of their tuitions times for all subjects. They instantly look for teaching specialties and this is something related to personalization in tutoring.  Set your teaching accurate.

How can I do that?

Expose your subject knowledge & skills and experience too, this is the foremost thing students will see when searching for you. Highlight your expertise as you can like,

What special topics can you teach?

What specific test you can prepare for students?

Lower fee structures

Never confuse quantity with quality. Even if the tutor is well experienced and knowledgeable, in case the fees structures don’t fit into students/parents budgets. Obviously they will look for another one who offers in low fees.

As you gain more students and stability, in decent approach raise your prices. In fact most successful tutors have used this strategy to claim up in career.

Of course! You should, because the both values are not just like software’s that could build in a day.  It’s a fragment of professional values to isolate you form other tutors. So unless or until you design a new way of culture to your students its hard stretch for you.

The unique culture I mean about your flexibility, competence, teaching style, actions, accountability, loyalty etc. The mentioned values should be imposed for both teachers and students then only the collaboration becomes as unique culture.

Feedbacks & Ideas

Being good in one subject doesn’t make your students as an expert in everything. Besides curriculum cultivate some innovation ideas to make them flying colors. In recurrence the credits will fall on you.

Do some extra practices that others do not.

For this you can facilitate feedbacks from passed out students, who have studied from you. The amount of feedbacks you get about your teaching increases reputation.

Strenuously, we hope that you’re a teacher grossing the respect of your students. Respect matters everywhere and that root from high credibility and reputation.

Remember credibility and reputation take years to earn but can be lost in seconds. Do not give chances to loss things, instead start bagging your credibility and reputations.

Postgraduate Entrance Exams as a Growing Phenomenon


Postgraduate Entrance Exams

The cut throat competition in higher education is a familiar subject that has been talked about for a long time now. The emergence of post-graduate entrance exams must be seen in this light. Elimination examination is something of an inevitable hurdle if one seeks to have a proper qualification.

Gone are the days of our parents where they got through colleges and universities and even government jobs with their mark sheets. In this regard there are certain major categories of courses that can be listed. This article is intended to give the reader a broad idea of the gateways to higher education in the country.


Held under the banner of professional courses, medicine is probably the most esteemed profession in the country; its difficulty level might be the reason behind this reputation. Here we have Allopathy, Homeopathy, and Ayurveda as main options.

Having obtained a graduate degree in Allopathy the next options may be an MD or a DNB though the former is given higher preference. This entails a number of all India entrance exams like AIPGMEE (All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination), AIIMS MD MS, JIPMER PG, PGI Chandigarh, CMC Vellore PG.

While the first in this list is the all India test for admission to 50% of all government seats in the country, others are of specific institutions. Applying to as many as possible will obviously improve the chances of securing a seat. Specializations, medical students are aware of and choice will depend on the rank.

Students interested in getting a foreign education say from the US can take exams like the USMLE. Graduates from some foreign institutes not recognized by the MCI (Medical Council of India) On the other hand have to clear a test conducted by them to obtain a license and then they can proceed with their MDs.

For a PG in Ayurveda there are institutes like the National institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur, Rishikul Ayurved College, Haridwar, Yerala Medical trust and Ayurved College, Mumbai, etc. It is usually a three year course and has variegated specializations.


A B.E/B.Tech graduate aspiring for an M.E/M.Tech from any of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) must go through the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering).

Other popular examinations include All India Engineering Entrance Examination, B.I.T.S.A.T. or Birla Institute of Science and Technology, Entrance Examination of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Entrance Examination of N.E.R.I.S.T. or North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology, M. Tech Entrance Examination of Banaras Hindu University, M. Tech Entrance Examination of I.I.I.T. or Indian Institute of Information Technology in Allahabad, M. Tech Entrance Examination of International Institute of Information Technology or I. I. I. T., M. Tech Entrance Examination of Jamia Milia Islamia University in New Delhi, M. Tech Entrance Examination of Kerala University, P.G.C.E.T. or Post Graduate Common Entrance Test in Karnataka, P.G.E.C.E.T. or Post Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test, S.R.M.E.E.E. or S.R.M. Engineering Entrance Examination, T.A.N.C.E.T. or Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test, V.I.T.E.E.E.

Evidently, there are ample opportunities for am M.Tech. However a good institute, usually a government one will ensure better jobs or even an easier PhD.


An MBA degree is perhaps the most sought after one in the country today attracting graduates from engineering, economics, commerce, as added to BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration). In this respect, the Common Aptitude Test (CAT) facilitates admissions to the IIMS, the country’s blue-blooded Management institutes.

For the rest of the Government administered B-schools (about 600) we have the Management Aptitude Tests conducted by AIMA of the HRD Dept. The Narsee Monjee Institute is another reputable option. For the really ambitious the GMAT will take one to International universities and the popularity of this exam is steadily on the rise.


This branch of higher education is a relatively new entrant in the world of entrance exams. As of yet, many Indian Universities conduct entrance exams for these and the trend is catching on.

The University of Delhi for example has been conducting exams for admission to its M.A. and other post graduate course for quite some time now and even these have minimum percentage eligibility in addition to the seats reserved for merit listed candidates.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University is even more difficult for admission there is purely entrance based. Still others like the Calcutta University Have 60% seats reserved for its own students while the rest is entrance based.

This is the general trend where the admission process is a mix of merit and entrance. A tendency of the universities to lean towards the latter however has been observed.

What is even more significant and probably troublesome to some extent is that there are no all India entrance tests for an academic post graduation.

Thus an aspirant must be very institute centric when it comes to an M.A. or an M.Sc. As mentioned earlier, entrances in this field are a relatively new phenomenon and to an extent the benefits of this system is disputed.

While the questions asked are very analytical thus ensuring the admission of good future academicians, it also has an element of risk. Many a times the most hardworking student gets left out for failing to produce analytical writing at that moment.

This is with respect to M.A. aspirants, for Humanities is a fluid subject and can have numerous interpretations. However, if one is interested in pursuing a course from outside of the country, the GRE accompanied by TOEFL will open up chances.

Letters of recommendations and academic papers are all part of the admission requirements. Scholarships are very few in this regard which makes it all the more difficult for the average Indian student to pursue such a course and the criteria for admissions are not that simple but not altogether impossible.

The international embassies can help in providing information and even guidance for the exams to some extent for a fee.

How to Cope with Failure in CA Exams?

CA Exams


Picture this: You are in a boxing match against Mike Tyson. Note that you’ve never lost a match before in your entire life.  This is the time to prove to yourself and others that you are the best. This is the match that can let you hang with the greats.

Three months of rigorous training, sleepless nights, and many sacrifices all for this one match.  You step into the ring, feeling confident yet nervous at the same time. The bell rings and the first round begins, after throwing a few jabs, you get the biggest blow of your life.

You’ve never felt such excruciating pain before. What are you going to do?Are you going to give up because you can’t take the pain or get up and keep trying?

Could you relate to this? If you are reading this, I’m sure you could. Let’s face it, Chartered Accountancy course is no cakewalk. It takes a lot of time, effort, and discipline to clear each level in your first attempt.

On the day of results, while you may find some happy faces, you’ll surely find a lot of sad faces. That’s just how it is. The pass percentage can go as low as 4-5%. This course is not called one of the most difficult courses for no reason.

Failure is rough, no matter how you slice it.  Though at some level, we understand that it helps us grow, we still hate it. When it does happen to us, we hold onto it and let it mow us down.

Why is it so hard to cope with failure? How can we bounce back into shape after failure? Here’s the answer-

  1. Accept it & Learn from it

Most of the students face failure for the first time in CA course and hence find it particularly difficult to deal with it. “How could I fail? I never failed in my life”, “I have no future anymore”, “What am I going to tell everyone?”

These are some of the most common thoughts on the day of results.  You need to relax and accept the situation. Accepting your failure doesn’t mean you are proud of it or that you are okay with it.

True acceptance is understanding that you hit a roadblock and now need to figure a way around it.

Try to look at it from an analytical perspective. Suspend the feelings of sadness, frustration or regret and ask yourself, “Why did I fail?”, “What can I change about my approach to produce better result?”, “Where can I improve?”

Look at failure as an opportunity to learn rather than an event to mourn about. Believe in the power of self- introspection. Write down all the points and start working towards changing those aspects. Handling failure in a productive way can indeed be beneficial.

“It’s all about how you set your sails in the rough seas” 

  1. Unfreeze-Change-Refreeze

After some much required self-introspection, you’ll be able to analyse as to what are the changes you need to make in your approach to get back onto the road to success. Changing the approach that you’ve been following for ages all at once can be pretty difficult.

Here’s where Kurt Lewin’s “Change Management Model” comes into play.  As per Kurt Lewin, by looking at change as a process with distinctive stages, you can manage the transition more smoothly. The process of Change has three stages:

  1. Unfreeze- This is the stage which involves breaking down your old approach towards exams and is usually the most difficult and stressful part of the process. When you start cutting down “Way things are done”, you feel like everything is off balance. But it is fundamentally important to build a new and better equilibrium for your exam preparation.
  2. Change- This is the stage wherein you implement the new ways of doing things. After unfreezing your earlier approach, this becomes relatively easier.
  3. Refreeze- This stage is all about embracing the change. There’s no point of making changes and holding on to them only for a day or two. You need to make their implementation long lasting. One way of doing that is understanding how this change will benefit you in your exams and understanding its importance.
  1. What’s your driving force?

Find your motivation. That one thing that makes you want to put in 200% effort. That one thing that makes you want to sacrifice everything in order achieve what you want. Something that makes you want to be disciplined when it comes to your preparation.

Something that makes you grind. Something that never lets you give up or give in. Find that motivation. Make that your driving force.  Keep that in mind every time you sit down to study. When you feel like quitting, think about why you started in the first place.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said,

“If you can’t fly, then run,

If you can’t run, then walk,

If you can’t walk, then crawl,

But whatever you do,

You have to keep moving forward”

Do you want to regain your motivation? Complete the sentence, “I do what I do, so that…” and really listen to your answer. Do you want more? Dig deeper. Discover why you do what you do, and make your best even better.

  1. Have Faith in Yourself

Separate failure from your identity. Not clearing one exam doesn’t make anyone a failure. Never undermine your capabilities.Thomas Edison reportedly failed 10000 times before making a light bulb.

Would you call him incapable? No. He was quoted as saying “I have found 10000 ways something won’t work. I’m not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward” We all can draw some very important lessons from that.

Remember one thing, success delayed in not success denied. Have faith in yourself and your capabilities. Obsessing over failure will not change the outcome, it’ll rather intensify it.

You cannot change what happened in the past but you can change your future. WhenCA exam seems like the dragon that’s putting you down in the battle, let resiliency be your knight in the shining armour. Believe you can do it and you are halfway there.

“The man who says he can, and the man who says he cannot.. Are both correct” – Confucius

Learn to push yourself harder. Feel that incredible power of pushing through whatever is holding you back and reaching your true potential.

You are much more capable than you think you are. Make your “WHY” strong enough to keep you standing through the curveballs life throws at you.

Forget all the excuses, forget what happened in the past.

You want to clear both the groups in your next attempt? Grind.

You want to get exemption in some subject? Grind.

You want to achieve your goals? Grind.

Hard work beats everything. Period.
