Adversity faced by my family was after my elder sister’s wedding, which resulted financial problems and marital problems in my sister’s marriage. Those years meant drought in happiness in our family.

During 2013 North India floods I have taken an initiative to collect funds to donate to CM relief fund, Uttarakhand. Simultaneously pursued with management for contribution which resulted in donating one day salary of all BSNL employees to relief fund. My formative years are 3rd year of diploma and engineering college days. As it gave me right attitude during my family turbulences, which led to me securing 4 th rank in ECET and resulting a belief in me that I can achieve anything I want if I put mind to it.

SECTION B (Answer in not more than 200 words) APPLICATION NO: 41500496396
1. Explain a situation when you were a part of a team where the group process and/or intended outcome failed. What was your role, how did you contribute to the process or outcome, and what did you learn?
I was SPOC (single point of contact) from BSNL for implementing BSNL cloud one project. It was a joint venture between M/s DimensionData and BSNL. This project implementation meant that BSNL could provide Hosting services, Cloud computing Services and Managed services. My role was to design network architecture and resource planning and implementation. Which meant I had to configure in our MPLS routers and co-ordinate with M/s.Dimensiondata and NIB (National internet Backbone) BSNL Node in-charges for establishing connectivity between Data centers and MPLS NIB routers. I was also responsible for procuring inventory required from BSNL side. We successfully established 6 data centers India and launched Cloud services on April 2012. Although we successfully delivered the infrastructure for the project, we are not able to attract enough number of customer and it’s been more than 3 years are not able to capture the cloud computing market. Reason for not attracting the customers for this project is same reason for decline of BSNL since past few years. Services which BSNL is providing are not reaching the customers and many are unaware of products BSNL is providing. Pointing to the fact that marketing of product is as important as producing it. 2. Describe an instance in which you took the strongest stand of your value system. What specific values were violated and what was at stake for you?
Recently I went to trekking in Kodachadri with a group. I volunteered as sweep and my role was to make sure nobody left behind and another member volunteered as lead whose responsibility was to interact with the local guide and follow his lead. Lead will be in front and sweep will be at the end of the trek group. We started the trek and one of our group member was ill and we slowed a bit. Eventually the group was split into 2 groups, as protocol lead should stop the trek they should trace their path until the group is united. So we waited at the last milestone for more than 30minutes unfortunately no one came back for us. Fortunately we have found a local who has shown us the path up to next mile stone, where we met our group and I questioned the lead for the reason behind not following the protocol as our group was at risk without any navigation. Finally we found out that communication is not happening properly from lead to sweep. We replaced the lead and placed a mechanism such that every group member shouted number sequence after some interval.
3. Explain a situation where you have brought about any improvement either in your self, work or society.
After I joined our office, I knew that I needed to increase my knowledge so that it can help me in optimizing and innovation in my work. So I started taking networking course which was 8 hours per week for 3 months on my own expenses. I worked hard between office and networking institute, and I successfully completed Cisco certification and NIIT certification. After getting certifications I have conducted workshops for my colleagues to share my knowledge for 1 month which was attended by more than 20 officers including our senior officials. And made pavement for an order to reimburse money for certifications from our GM to encourage officials to gain certifications and increase their knowledge. After my certifications I was made part of newly created team whose purpose was to cater our internal projects which needed higher efficiency in managing and implementing them. And also for Indian government projects which are vast and complex and need skills to coordinate with diverse people across India.
