With the blessings of my parents, I am currently in an IIT working for fulfilling the vision of electricity availability in the whole span of India.
Despite being the lifeline of current civilization, Electricity is something unavailability of which can't be denied for a major part of Indian Rural Population which I have also been a part of.

I have worked at Bhabha Atomic Research centre, Mumbai. Currently, I am pursuing my research on designing an air foil which can trap wind energy to produce electricity and can be deployed even on the roof of a house. Recently I have been offered with a Summer Internship by a Professor of Johns Hopkins University, USA to work for wind energy harvesting under his guidance during summer of 2017.

It will really be a great opportunity for me to share my research work with a professor of an excellent stature. 
This internship will pave the way for me to explore the vast space of research possibilities available in the realm of Renewable and Sustainable Energy and will in some way strengthen my desire to develop an efficient system which will be able to make sure that no one will be denied with the availability of basic energy needs.

Unfortunately, I am not able to bear the expenses of my travel and stay there at Hopkins.
1. Round Trip Economy Class Air Travel Fare = 1,00,000 INR
2. USA VISA Fees = 160 USD = 10685.59 INR
3. Food & Accommodation Charges = 1000 USD (Per Month) X 2.5 (Months) = 2500 USD = 166962.38 INR
Total Expected Expenses = 277647.97 INR

Thurst for knowlwdge and my crawling deep desire of transforming the lives of rural people in my country make me ask for your support. I hope you will grace with your help.
Contac me on '' for any type of further information. I will be grateful to someone who has shown interest in the dream of a fund-seeking guy like me. :)
