Now some information about my preferences and activities stated with all humilty at my command:-
I like to keep live contact with my class mates and alumni of my alma maters-Govt. Engineering College, Jabalpur (1954-58) and Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.,USA (!960-64) through email/Skype. I am actively associated with their alumni associations.
I enjoy selflessly conselling desirous students and friends in solving their personal, academic and social problems. I like to motivate the younger generation to adopt ethics, righteous and positive approach in life with judicious flexibility commensurate with times. I try to help them in their personality development by making them adopt right values, conduct and demeanour required for success in the world of work. All these activities make life meaningful and gratifying for a retired senior citizen like me.
