Introduction
Blessings from Lord Shiva Leads the Path of me. I am very much interested in teaching and research activities in environmental sciences field. I have experienced so many mistakes and learned something out of it. Energetic in knowing new trends and technologies in my interested areas. Presently my profession doesn't allow me to do any major research activities; whereas it increases the ability to promote research to the students in various aspects. Hoping for some helps from international arena to perform.
