INTRODUCTION
Hello. Here are few important highlights about myself that i'd like you to know:

  1. I believe that a healthy mind & body is a prerequisite for enhanced work performance.
  2. I take care of my health by either playing basketball or working out at the gym.
  3. I do things differently. I popularize the term that states "Be Different. Be Unique. Be Exclusive.". This applies in my research as well.
  4. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences under the guidance of Prof. Dipak Chetia.
  5. In my research work, I combined the traditional pharmacognostical research with advanced techniques such as CADD, machine learning, informatics, chemometrics, QSAR modeling, hyphenated techniques, etc.
  6. I am a busy person with an insane work ethic but I am able to manage time to have a proper work-life balance.
  7. I also believe that in order to work smart, you first have to work hard.
  8. I belong to the group of people who genuinely does the work. I don't belong to the group that tries to take only the credit.
