I took a lot of initiatives at the school level in sports and cultural activities which got me through the zonal level for baseball and dance, but due to the orthodox thinking of close relatives, I could not make a career in sports. This projected me towards studies, and I started my journey at the early age of 7 years by teaching my kids in my neighborhood ranging from the age of 5 – 7 years to assist them to complete their homework.

After completing graduation, I got fascinated towards computer technology which was booming at that time in the year 1998, so, joined Aptech Higher Diploma in Software Engineering and became North Zone topper and got the placement in the F.C. College, Hisar to teach DOEACC O level course; It’s here that I came across a lot of challenges since I did not have any government degree to teach the course and overcame the situation by joining Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra and became University topper (Gold Medalist). Later I got an opportunity to teach M.Sc Computer Science students at Shanti Niketan College, Hisar where the average age of students was 35 years when I was just 22. Life took a U-turn when I got married in 2002 and came to Mumbai. I restarted my career with my old passion for imparting knowledge and supporting mother-in-law in home tuitions (for class 6 to 9th) and several coaching classes like Sukh Sagar Vashi (Computer subject for C.A. course) and visiting faculty to various colleges (IGNOU MCA course). Then I joined various colleges as full-time faculty and finally got a good break at Vidyalankar School of Information Technology in 2008 here I got the opportunity and liberty to teach the students with various teaching methodologies.

Related to my hobbies, when I was not able to go for sports, my Father inspired me to go ahead with introspection where I developed my interest in scribbling which further lead to writing articles and poetry, but after marriage, I was not able to continue, but the passion for writing kept me on toes to publish more than 20 books in the field of technology for Vipul Prakashan and Institute of Open and Distance Learning, Mumbai University. So, one thing I learned in my life is that nothing is constant except change.
