I studied primary and high school in a suburban Historical Heritage town called Srirangapatna, Mandya. I spent my first exciting 14years in absorbing knowledge, Reading 10-15 Encyclopedias and Attending n Winning Championships in Karate, Yoga, Singing, Dancing, and Chess.
I was in class 7th, and I accidentally stumbled upon a program called "Brain Café Budding Scientist Contest" in the school nearby to my home. I looked at the brochure - I was so excited to see students making models, projects and research; I switched my school and my first STEM Project called "Purification and reuse of Sewage water to muliple use cases".
I qualified to Brain Cafe Program but lost at regionals. I also attended multiple programs and dropped tons of times.
Many Attempts -- I was still a failure, and I was tired, sad - fed up doing this again n again.
My mom gifted my first laptop - Sony Vaio to cheer me up and keep me distracted from the past events.
For the first time, I could access the entire globe's Information just with few clicks!! It was the best times of my day - I got introduced to OpenCourseWare, Instructables, YouTube, w3school and so many autodidact sites.
I jumped straight in and taught myself to code, design, physics, chemistry and what not.
At last my efforts, resilience paid off - I presented my first successful research in 2014 with the title "Let's Generate Electricity From Walking; Which got me least 50+ Awards & Recognition in total.
Consequently, I Guided two more research for High School Students -- Presented One more research with title "Harnessing Energy by Sound with piezo crystals".
In the span of 3, I had received so many awards, attenteded conferences, spoke at events, traveled India and networked crazily.
But, I was not happy with the course I was on... The feeling of I'll end up as an employee was not something I was comfortable with! I wanted to be big - Solve Problems - Impact a large number of people and after a long exploration I realized my entrepreneurial skills and made a decision to be an entrepreneur & Attend MIT for my undergrad
I moved to from my small town Srirangapatna to my birth town Mangalore in May 2017.
I was all good initially... It was my first time away from my home, parents, and locality. I was at my aunt's and enrolled at St.Aloysius Pre University College.
The first thing I did in Mangalore was to go to the city's businesses to apply my skills and earn a paycheck, so I can be financially independent and learn about money.
All of a sudden I was in deep depression for no particular reason for a very long time -- Exactly from May to October 2017.
In October - I accidentally stumbled upon the book "Rich and Poor Dad" and Meditation and the next day I felt completely different; like I unlocked my higher dimension.
I Started My first Business - A Crypto Invenstment Advisory and Consortium Company along starting an incredible research in my life's focus areas - "Hunger", with my friend Swasthik Padma.
Our Research "Ultra low-cost Pre-symptomatic Diagnostic tool for protein-energy malnutrition" was selected to represent India at Intel ISEF 2018, Pittsburgh by Department of Science & Technology and Intel.
2017 Was the most exciting year - I learned to use pain as a medium to grow, read lots of books, Understood the power of subconscious mind, Gratitude and lots.
May 2018 was my life changing moment - I just won at Intel ISEF and got my name named on a planet by MIT Lincoln Laborotaties and IAU.
Time spent in the US were my best memories!!
I was back in mangalore on June 2018 with lots of energy and vision.
I started 4 Companies, 1 Non-Profit & 1 Research.
