About Me:
        Although I'd like to think of myself as a balanced individual, I can't seem to help but gravitate toward spending countless hours inside my room designing and building a lot of the ideas that come to my head. Ever since I can remember I have been intrigued by science and engineering. At the age of 12, while most kids played on their video games, I enjoyed working two summers in a motorcycle work-shop as a helper. By the time I was 15 I was building 6 channel model wood air-planes (very uncommon here), while engaging in a 'basic engineering' training program guided by a German vocational training expert where I have spent over a year in a fully equipped wood-working and metal-working work-shop, building everything from tables and chairs to wooden toy trucks for under-privileged children.
                             Science is where my heart lies, it helps me appreciate the intricacy and sheer complexity  of nature and everything around me. I am thoroughly fascinated by it and am often ridiculed for grinning away hopelessly while sitting in class when a half-interested gloomy teacher explains a new concept or idea to everyone.
         Growing up in a home with both parents having Ph.D's has ingrained in me an innate research-based thought process which has equipped me with the ability to answer a lot of the questions I have, myself and I seem to have a lot of them. I intend on using this ability of mine to benefit my community and the world in whichever way I can.
      Apart from science, I love travelling, adventure and writing. I have travelled comprehensively throughout India having been to every state, most of it with family and some of it alone. I enjoy doing a lot of long-distance cycling also, covering more than 160kms (100 miles) at times in a day. I am also a certified glider pilot with just under 20 hours of flying under me. White

water rafting and para-sailing are also activities I often do and enjoy. Writing has also been another one of my passions often being noted as one of the best in my school, I have represented it in various competitions and have received a proficiency certificate for it along with having the privilege to write the first article in the first edition of our new school news paper. I have also received a scholarship recently to do my International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
          I dedicate a lot of my spare time, whenever I can, to doing social service and have worked for numerous hours with various local non-government-organisations. 'environmental protection' has been a favourite issue of mine to work on, and most of my designs are directed at solving those problems, designs like the one I have presented for the fair.
       The Google science fair, to me, was a blessing in disguise, it would give me the chance to publicise and continue development on my idea which could eventually result in the saving of a lot of resources and benefit a lot of communities, throughout the world. Also, it would give me the opportunity to meet with Nobel laureates and some of the sharpest minds of the 21st century, which has been a dream of mine for quite some time now. I have always wanted to belong to a scientific community and help solve some of the biggest problems that our world faces one by one and the Google Science Fair gives me that opportunity.
