The Visa Officer,

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit ~ Aristotle
The process of learning continues throughout one\'s life. The more I learn, the more I realize is left to discover. Ever since childhood, I have had a thirst for knowledge. This thirst is what has helped reach this juncture. A fascination for science and the keen interest in the ever-growing world of technology motivated me to take up engineering.
The field of computers involves delving deep into the concepts of mathematics and science so that they could apply to real-world problems. Hence, I opted for math and information technology at the S.S.J engineering college, affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, where I got admission through a competitive examination. I chose to major in information technology as I am keen to delve deeper into this challenging field. During this program, I acquired a strong command over languages like C, C++, HTML, Java, DBMS, ORACLE 11g. I worked on various platforms - Pentiums with the operating systems – UNIX, Windows XP/ 7/ 8. The subjects that I have studied include software engineering, computer networks, data structures, computer organization, database management system, operating systems, computer graphics, design and analysis of algorithms, and mobile computing. These subjects laid the foundation for advanced study in the field. My academic record reflects that I have always been a consistent performer.
As part of the course curriculum, I worked on a project titled, ‘Food safety portal’. I have done this project using .net under the guidance and supervision of Ashok, a senior software engineer from Koral Apps, Secunderabad. Presently, there is a high demand for Food business In order to meet their minimal requirements in the field of food courts and serving guests, one requires software that automates their every day\'s specials food items of a food court activities in a user-friendly and timesaving manner. This software serves the basic needs of both Guests and Hotels, Food courts as well this software provides user to configure his/her own settings.
I worked on another project during my under graduation called ‘Picture Radio’ on JAVA platform under the guidance of Madhava Kasiraju, a senior software engineer from Teleparadigm Networks Ltd. ‘Picture Radio\' redefines the mobile FM radio experience not just for listeners but also for the radio stations, advertisers, and operators. Never again will people have to wonder what is playing on the radio. With a visual radio, images and text are synchronized with the radio broadcast to bring information and interactivity directly to your mobile phone. Visual radio offers greater access to factual content, participation in audience polls.
