Q1. Pease share your inspirational journey with us?
I was a village boy and study in a local government school. Basically, I belong to a farming family, which has a lot of cattle and agricultural land. My father got a government job so we moved to Jaipur. In starting I don’t like city due to too much crow. I complete my school education, then college, and in last master’s degree in the university. In college when I see our lecturers, I want to be a lecturer. In university when I see the life of a professor so I decide to be a professor or scientist. Later on, I get an idea about foreign education so always looking for some scholarships for higher education abroad. Slowly I got the scholarships and I complete my higher education from foreign universities also get opportunities for international travel for conferences, seminars and meeting so till today I travel almost 25 countries and working internationally.

This subject belongs to ISRO and NASA so it`s attract to me a lot. Every day new satellites are going to launch with very high-resolution data, as well as all subjects using remote sensing and GIS technology thus this subject, have a very vast opportunity. Artificial intelligence/data science also relates to this subject even some units already in this subject such as in classification ANN and big data etc.

I worked in different object-oriented projects but for the last two years I am working on ecology/ecosystem/environment, climate change, etc. With remote sensing data, we can get real-time actual information about climate and environment as well as save this information in GIS format. The analysis results are helpful for sustainable development and management or proper police making for the region or society.
