I wish to be an Ayurvedic Doctor. I aim to study about some of the plant species in western Ghats which were used as medicines in olden days but are now neglected due to the easy availability of allopathic medicines. I hope to bring them back to use in medical practice. My significant achievements so far include: securing first place in national level general knowledge examination held by Chinthana Foundation, Chitradurga, securing first place in state level science talent examination held by Chinthana foundation. I hope the NIAS mentorship program will guide me within my interests of research, and acquiring higher educational qualifications. I also look forward to understanding how my work could have public relevance.
