For me, foray into research was driven by my lust for knowledge, which invariably led me to teach. There is nothing more exciting than a scholarly discussion. I was fortunate enough to work with many Professors who took great pride and pleasure in nurturing students. I had the honour of being the Lead TA for the largest course in IIT-M (Introduction to Programming - 630 students). I have been the lead TA for this course for 6 semesters.
