1) Nitan Hiran
I belong to a middle class family from Udaipur, Rajasthan. My dad runs a small company for recording and distributing Rajasthani folk music cassettes and CDs. My mother is a housewife and I have two sisters who are now married. I would like to thank Mr. K. K. Rao, who helped me finish my education. Without his help, I would have probably missed such an opportunity of graduating from our alma mater - BITS Pilani. I got placed in Larsen and Toubro Ltd. and I'm currently working as a Design Engineer. I plan to go for an MBA after gaining two years of work experience in the firm. I then plan to start my own business. Once I am financially sound, I am sure that I will draw inspiration from alumni like Mr. K. K. Rao and will like to return the favor by helping my juniors some years down the line so that many more students can change their lives as I did.
