“Finance seems to be number game but is the most basic necessity of human life and so for organizations. It is quintessential for survival. I am passionate about imparting this life saving skill to my students. I drive satisfaction from seeing my students getting matured in understanding of money matters with ethics.”

I had always been a meritorious student. I was in merit list of Punjab School Education Board for Matriculation and Senior Secondary, College topper in 7/8 semesters in B.E.
