My life Journey
I was born on 13th January 1994 in Bhatpurwa, a small village with 1500 People in the district of Gorakhpur of the northern state of India, Uttar Pradesh. I lived there for 8 years, it was an enriching experience personally because there was the sanctity of serenity, kindness, innocence, and love for nature in the milieu. At that time, we had electricity only for 6 hours in a day. Therefore, life was very different from the city (I realized that later) as people were mostly busy in doing household activities and farming apart from some people working as government servants. This experience taught me about the life in the village, opportunities, and challenges. It broadened my horizon of thinking which is very difficult to develop while living in cities.
Thereafter, in early 2002 I got the chance to go into a city of the state Gujarat. I got admitted to Kendriya Vidyalaya Porbandar in 3rd Grade. Now, this was a huge change for me, as there was a stark difference in the lively city from that of the village whether it be food, language (almost every state has its own language in India), people or places,
everything. But fortunately, I got the admit in a school where there were people from all over India, this was a point of inflection in my life which turned my fortune my advantage. I lived and studied in Porbandar for 10 years till 2012. And then I was out of the school to face the world. Based on my high school grade and an entrance exam score I got the admission into Government Engineering College Patan (affiliated to Gujarat Technological University) where I studied Mechanical Engineering for 4 years. Patan with its cultural and historical heritage was completely different city than Porbandar. It was the medieval capital of Gujarat.
While I was doing my bachelors, I started coming to Ahmedabad on weekends and holidays to prepare for management aptitude test and taking part in workshops and seminars of my interest. Ahmedabad is a one of the biggest city in India, I really enjoyed spending my weekend there and learning from different activities happing across the city during the course of time.
And then after the successful preparation, I got the admit into one of the best b-school of India located in the economic capital Mumbai. Studying at SPJIMR, Mumbai was an incredible experience. It was a very rigorous program with a focus on 32 management courses in a short span of six and a half month. Many Professors were ex-CEO, MD, of the biggest organizations in India and others were researchers and experts in their field of teaching. After living for approximately 7 months in this metropolitan city, now it was time to start the second leg of the Master’s journey in Europe. And this is how I landed in Germany (my first visit outside India). Here, I am pursuing Master in Management at EBS Business School Germany, which is very famous for its Master in Management program (Ranked 1th worldwide in FT Master in Management Rankings 2015). The EBS Business School is an international b-school with students coming from different parts of the world. Also at EBS Business School students come for an exchange or dual-degree from top-notch universities and b-school like Bocconi, National University of Singapore, Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad to name a few. Every day is a learning at the EBS Business School and the process is still in progress.
