Bible Proverb 13:20 says ‘Walk with the wise and become wise,for a companion of fools suffers harm.’ People you surround yourselfwith, reflect your personality. A poor farmer’s son who became a renownedprofessor of Political Science, a mother who went against her family and stoodup against inter-caste marriage, or the girl who made her way to the top 10dentists of the city: These are the people I live with, and I’m the average ofthem.

The legacy of breaking the old orthodox culture combined with the highhopes & support to achieve prominence lead me to pursue master’sdegree from an overseas university. I got my first personal computer in 2003, and from that yearI’ve just exploited PCs at every level. While my friends were busy playing withlegos, I was dissembling computers. By the end of high school, creating analgorithm for programs gave me thrills. I wanted to do my bachelor’s inComputer Science Engineering(CSE), but my advisor cum mentor asked me to optfor Biomedical engineering. Due to less popularity, I was quite bothered aboutthe scope and my career, but the four years I spent at Shri Govindram SeksariaInstitute of Technology & Science taught me to gaze with undimmed eyes onall darkness. Being a comic book fan especially Ironman, I am highlyfascinated by Brain-computer interface, Medical Image processing, and ArtificalIntelligence. My project on ‘Sway Analysis’ instilled the idea of incorporationof CSE concepts into Biomedical Engineering, an idea which in future will turnout to be the most logical extensions of my objectives.
The training inEmbedded systems and the exposure to real-world instrumentation at CHLHospital’s internship gave me the practical knowledge that my inquisitive mindwas searching. At the offset of my master’s degree, I would prefer to pursuePh.D. in the relevant domain.
The reason I am applying for Purdue University’s master programis that the research areas and publication of the faculties; matches my area ofinterest and thereby ensuring the synergetic relationship between student andthe professor. Also, to pursue an active career in research and to strengthenthe link between humans and machines, I have to explore and understand thesubtle nuances of the subject, which only your flexible curriculum willjustify. I might face formidable and inevitable challenges which may invitestress to person’s life, and therefore my antidote for the same is dance, whichstands as one of the most crucial element in my life for it undoubtedlyrejuvenates oneself as it is always the secret language of one’s soul.
