I am a research scholar of IIT BOMBAY and working in the field of Experimental High Energy Physics with ALICE collaboration at the CERN. I also keep observing the world mainly India by means of politics, economy, science and technology etc and write blogs based on my analysis, thought and imagination of my observations.
Life and education:
I was born in a small village of Kushinagar district, Uttar Pradesh, India. My family belongs to middle class family, my father is a government employee and my mother is a housewife. My early education was very random and I changed lots of school in every year or two years. I started my education from class 2nd in real sense. My parents thought I am some extra-ordinary student so they made me skip class 4th and I jumped directly from class 3rd to class 5th thats why I was always at least two years younger than my classmates in general. After it, my academic records became horribly bad. I just passed classes 6th, 7th and 8th with grace. I gave entrance to Sachidanand Inter College for my high school and somehow qualified and got admission. I secured around 39 % marks in 3rd monthly exam (failed in math and science subjects), 44% marks in half-yearly exam (again failed in math and science subjects) and 49% in yearly exam. My academic record was so bad in class 9th that my mother thought I will never pass the high school exam so I went to a different school Panchayat Inter College near my home so that I can get coaching, some help in exams etc. The transfer from Sachidanand Inter College to Panchayat Inter College was not easy because the rule of Uttar Pradesh Education board is that to earn high-school degree, one should do 9th and 10th from same school. To transfer, my registration details were brought from UP board. The District inspector of schools (DIOS) was very strict and I could not get any help during my high-school exams. At last I secured 361 marks out of 600 marks in my high-school and I was the only one from my school who passed with first division marks in year 2006 still marks in math and science were less than 50%. I secured 11th rank for intermediate entrance examination in Chokhraj Tulsyan Saraswati Vidya Mandir Inter College, Siswa and took admission in mathematics stream. I passed intermediate with 73% marks in 2008. I have been graduated from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi with Bachelor of Science (Hons.) degree in Physics subject in 2011. After graduating, I gave IIT JAM 2011 Exam and secured 71th rank all over India. I took admission in IIT BOMBAY for M.Sc.-PhD Dual degree in Physics through it in 2011. Currently I am finalizing my PhD research work.
I can say from my life experience, marks can’t be a good option to judge the intelligence level of a student. I never got good grades.
