It is always nice to get unsolicited appreciation for one’s work. But there are some that brings tears of joy in one’s eyes. The following are of such nature:

“Your certification courses on Vibration Analysis, Level 2 and Level 3 are highly sought after courses in NTPC and without doubt they are way better than other existing courses available in the market.”

Additional General Manager (NTPC, PMI)

“I know the word “Passion”. For that matter , we know so many words. But they are known as words and their meanings , some times take life time to understand. What you are doing is Passion. It has crossed all barriers of time , money , expectations etc and a journey towards undefined Goal because the Goal is something achievable.
Very few people with a holistic knowledge and holistic approach are available in India.”
