  1. What a genius guy. Graduates and students, can learn a lot by working for someone like him than sit and wonder what to do with their college education. Though his english wasn't perfect he was able to convey how self-intitation with a combination of tech-savyness and grit, can cause a ripple effect of problem solving starting with something simple like problem ownership. He saw something problematic that was personal to him, took upon the challenge of fixing it by himself, inspite of the hurdles of winning over the trust of family and health services, and through grit resolved the problem. That eventually turned into an opportunity for solving problems at system level, and how the journey eventually set him on the path of enterprenuership and mentorship. Very inspiring Senthil, thanks!
