I'd not claim myself to be a genius in academics but i do with passion what i like. Here are some of the details.

Well I liked to perform well in various competitive exams some time back (though i've changed that habit now :) )

i was an NTSE (national level scholarship exam conducted by NCERT) scholar and was also topper in MTS exam and second in BTS - for those who know it

i was a KVPY fellow in science stream SA in 2003 (11 and 12 std)

i was among the top 250 or so selected in the Physics and Chemistry Olympiad for the 2nd stages (INCHO & INPHO)

I did my SSC (high schooling) from Little Flower's English High School, Nallasopara near Mumbai and HSC from Bhavan's College, Andheri, Mumbai both from Maharashtra Board.

After that i spent an year at VNIT (Visweshraya National Institute of Technology), Nagpur studying Computer Science.

There's a small story why i wasn't vey happy with CSE @ VNIT despite my interest in computing.

Anyway, i reappeared for IIT-JEE without much practise and as destiny would have it i qualified again with somewhat better rank than the previous year, and ended up joining the Dual Degree programme at Aerospace Dept., IIT Bombay since i did not want to join other conventional streams (Civil, Mech, Elec, Chem, ...)

In my tenure at IIT Bombay, i have learnt a lot about Aerospace Engineering and also did a lot of other things. I'm very much into programming and have taken a lot of courses on computing for fluid mechanics and analytical courses.

Here's a list of PG electives i have taken

At the end of 8th semester my CPI (cumulative point index) or CGPA is 8.57
