I’m passionate about developing products that make lives better !” – Sundar Pichai, Google CEO. I’m also fired by this desire as the whole gamut of our existence and exploration right from DNA coding to a Mars Rover Mission are driven by the technology of computers. Computers have always fascinated me since I was a kid. I wondered how it worked, and how a machine can understand our inputs and respond. At 4th grade, when com-puter science was first taught at school, the subject became my favourite.
Over the course of my studies, I learnt about programming from our teacher and found the answers to my earlier questions. During the stint of my schooling, I have been keenly exploring various aspects of computer science. I also prefer to engage myself in tasks that are tricky and come out with creative and efficient solutions. The field of computer science and artificial intelligence has a scope for such new ideas, therefore I would like to continue my higher studies in the very same field.I have participated in the first stage of various national and international Olympiads in computer science, general science and mathematics, securing the rank of school topper more often than not and qualified for the finals. Besides, in the Chrysalis day-Computer Science Competition organised by our School every year, I with fellow students as a team presented projects. The preparation for the projects was a valuable experience providing mean opportunity to learn a lot. For three consecutive years, our group’s projects won a place in the finals and what is more twice secured the first place.
All in all, I have found it highly exciting to study computer science as it amply reflected in my academic excellence.Besides being very good in academics in general, I have varied interests to whet my appetite for creativity. I am a self-taught artist, I usually work on pencil portraits, and water colour & acrylic paintings, some of which I share in Instagram and art-sharing websites. Further, I took my interest to regional and national level painting competitions and happily won many of them. I have also successfully completed four grades in electronic keyboard conducted by Trinity College, London; I was a part of the school marching band performing regularly for the school as well as on public occasions.
Thirdly, the sound of the camera shutter while clicking pictures appeals to me; I am a shutterbug taking clear photos and editing them as another of my absorbing pastime. As a recreational sport, I play badminton to my delight and health. My leisure time is spent on Quora as a pursuit of my inquisitive mind with regard to technology and current affairs.
To complete my extra-curricular activities, I visit orphanages to help the inmates and take part in campaigns such as Clean India (aka Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan).Given an opportunity to pursue my higher education in computer science engineering, I’m confident that I’ll explore untrodden territories in this mind boggling field. The advanced education in this line of study will go a long way in making me a thoroughbred professional who can make telling difference with technological innovations in people’s lives. Thus, I would like to relate myself to the humanity in terms of my contributions to its advancement.
