Excellent Science and Commerce PU college (I-PUC), Chikmagluru I have always been a studious person with a keen sense of enquiry and curious nature about my surroundings. As my school was about 25 kms from my house in a rural area I had ample opportunity to observe the flora and fauna which was in abundance. While observing some plants I began to think that it is necessary to develop medicines useful for us from plants. My ambition in life is to study Biology and develop drugs made from plant protein. Some of my achievements so far are: I secured the 96th place in the state and 186th place in the NTSE (National Talent Search Exams). I have participated in a state-level contemporary speech competition and won. I also suggested an innovative idea about irrigation systems in my father’s agricultural land. I have secured the 1st rank in the SSLC exam and 2nd rank in Mudigere Taluk. I heard about NIAS MAIYA prodigy Fellowship 2018-19 and I thought this platform would give me good support for my research ideas in the future.
