To be able to translate difficult scientific concepts to a version that is enjoyable for the layman and instills the curiosity & joy of science in people is a strong point of mine. Invited by various news channels including CNN (International), CNN IBN 7, Star News, Sahara, News 24/7, ABP News, Doordarshan, Zee News, etc for the same.
– National Prize winner – Most Popular Robot. India.
