Design has always been my passion. I get excited seeing my design taking shape as a product or machine however small and trivial it may be. I started my career as a designer. For sometime I had a teaching job, but since 2006 I am back to my design career. Teaching is also exciting, but I think the bias is more towards design.
I had a chance to guide my fresher employees in my company when they joined as design engineers. In a way I was linking my greater passion, design, with my lesser passion, teaching. It was certainly gratifying when you see them doing it on their own and coming out successful.
