Santosh says “My tasks can fall into journey of discovery of oneself. I like to experiment with roles and tasks. There are several inspirational points to quote. It’s my English teacher and parents for reading and writing habits. Academic writing I would like to thank Dr. Shrihari, faculty at NITK Surathkal. Experimenting with new tasks I would like to credit to Mr. Ramana. In order to shape Public Speaking in schools and college I would like to credit Dr. Meena R Chandavarkar. There are several people to thank for this journey!”
“Its nostalgia to think of childhood days. Its has been independent upbringing. Decision were little or no influence from parents or siblings. School was the best thing I could have asked for. Teachers were best part of my childhood days to cherish” shared Santosh
