I am currently pursuing Mechanical Engineering degree.I have been working for Mechanical Engineering Association (MEA) since my I year. I am currently the Treasurer of MEA and was previously a Mechatronics team member. I also works for Team Robocon BITS Pilani which participates in an Asia Oceania level robotics event ABU Robocon.I was very happy to know that I am a recipient of this scholarship. I am very grateful to the donor for his generous scholarship fund. To me the most impressive aspect is the kindness of the donor. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me. 
 Sagar Arora:

I am very thankful to all those who have made this Scholarship of Rs. 25000/- possible. Such things instil confidence in you and motivate you to move ahead in life. I come from a small middle-class family, but my economic background never created a hurdle in my life, thanks to the MCN scholarships of BITS. It greatly motivates me to work harder & give back to this esteemed institution, BITS, Pilani.
