By the people, For the People
He has been working on research and innovation since his very early years and recently he has developed a special virtual portal where people can share their problems and challenges in their daily routine and life and for the concerned educated citizens in particular who share their perspective of the problems with him.

Empathy towards People
The innovations made by him so far have all been in the public domain. All the devices invented by him are made with the sole intention of benefiting the general public at large.
