Born in the city of Indore which thrives on simple yet unique food, rich history and diverse heritage, I had ample time to notice and appreciate the simplicity of everyday life. Perhaps, this is the reason I was driven to chose a career in design as I always found that the nature of everyday life had a design to it with no boundaries and beautifully packed the right balance of mental, emotional and physical synchrony.
Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing, Jabalpur (IIITDMJ) struck as the very right place for me to grow into the person I always wanted to. It helped me harness my creativity and fostered the child inside me into a grown man.
My aim in life is to bring forth solutions of the most usable and relatable forms that would inspire hundreds of other Soumils from every corner of the globe to come forth with new and intuitive ideas to serve, nurture and propagate life in all its beauty and diversity.
