I consider academics very seriously and dedicate significant portion of my time on preparing presentations and seminars on my academic work. From my 1st year of Undergraduate Engineering, I have given several talks at a local amateur astronomy club in Pune called ‘Akashmitra‘ (which means friends of the sky in the local language – Marathi). At Akashmitra, like minded people interested in astronomy come together for academic discussions on astronomy. Along with these talks, I also receive several invitations to give talks at colleges in the city based on my project work and experience.
