The next part of my education from the 7th standard to an M.Sc. in Mathematics was completed in 1995 from PPN College Kanpur. Due to no proper guidance on career, it took time to reach the final goal, which was yet not decided. Later I cleared the entrance exam and selected for the MCA course in UOR, better known as IIT Roorkee (2000-03). After six years I again come back and join the Ph.D. program in IIT Roorkee (2009-14). Here I again invested my 3 and a half years of life to complete my research works.
