My duty is not only to provide knowledge, but to make my students knowledgeable. As a teacher my efforts are to reinforce the concepts by explaining complex issues with interesting examples and student activities. I believe each student is capable and a good teacher can make her/him efficient by proper channelization of knowledge. Teaching keeps me strongly attached to the root of knowledge and research helps me fly in the air of innovation
