Statement of Purpose
We are in an era of the ‘Information Revolution’ driven by telecommunication.Communication has evolved from analog telephones to 3G wireless cell-phones inthe past decade. This growth has revolutionized the world in the way we work,think and interact. With the developments in wireless networking, the freedom toaccess information ‘anytime, anywhereis in the offing, thereby redefining theconcept of connectivity. Hence, the future belongs to an ‘IP everywhere and over everything era’, packed with wireless interfaces and intensive networking.However, there are many challenges that arise in this interconnected world likemaintaining security, routing, enhancing multimedia networking, etc. Extensiveresearch is required to tackle them. It will be an exciting time in the academies tolearn and participate in this campaign. I would like to do my masters in EEmajoring in wireless communication and networking.
I have been brought up in a family with good academic background. Listening tomy father discussing about the engineering giant Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T) thathe is working for and stories of successful scientists and leaders etc. shaped mycharacter. I enjoyed physics and mathematics in school for its preciseness andlogic base. After completing SSC, I decided to take up Diploma in Engineering as Iwanted to develop the basic concepts of engineering before entering Bachelorsdegree. I completed my Diploma in Electronics & Telecommunication Engineeringfrom Larsen & Toubro Institute of Technology. Diploma course was of 4 yrsIndustry Integrated which included 1 year Inplant training in 2 companies. Iundertook my first 6 months training at Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T’s) HeavyEngineering Department (HED). I undertook the next 6 months of industrial trainingat L&T Infotech, Network Operation Center. Here I got an opportunity to dosomething different besides the electronics stream. My job here was to designlearning website for L&T Infotech and develop various software. I got anopportunity to learn different software related programming. I secured 1st positionin diploma with 81%. I have been felicitated by Chairman & Managing Director of Larsen & Toubro Group of Companies & by the President (Electrical &Electronics), Board member of Larsen & Toubro Group of Companies, Mumbai for academic excellence. Having performed exceptionally well, I was offered an entryinto sophomore year of undergraduate engineering degree in Mumbai University.I attended an online seminar by the telecom guru-‘Sam Pitroda’ in my sophomoreyear. His views on the ‘telecom boom’ and its importance for economic growthinspired me. My mind dwelt on his innovative ideas and I consideredtelecommunication was rightly the subject of my preference. I also began enjoyingthe core subjects such as signal processing, wave propagation and mobilecommunication systems. My participation in college level networking contests alsobrought interest in computer and wireless networking. I was particularly fascinatedabout wireless sensor networks, about devices communicating multimediaamongst them. With the help of my professors, I went ahead to undertake adetailed study about the different networking protocols. I learnt a good deal aboutPersonal Area Networks, something which appealed to me. I was keen to learnabout the entire process of authentication and confidentiality of data in a multinetwork environment.

Project Experience:
Electronic Telephone Demonstrator (Diploma- Engineering)
My interest in communication has been instrumental in conceptualizing my finalyear project in Diploma “Electronic Telephone Demonstrator”.Electromechanical or rotary dial telephones have been in use for nearly a century.The working of these telephones could be easily demonstrated and understood asmechanical movements such as making & breaking of the contacts by rotarydialers, which are visible & hence quite easy to assimilate. Unlike its mechanicalcounterpart, the electronic telephone does not have visible movements andtherefore it needs a different demonstration model and some electronic testequipment for observing its operation.The telephone demonstrator that we developed was designed on modular basis todemonstrate the functions & facilities of the following units:
Hook switch
Polarity Guard
Electronic Switch
Speech Processor 
Ring Detector 
Current Limiter 
Loop Simulator 
Anti-sidetone circuit
Music on hold
2.Coil Drives (On going B.E project)
In the final year of B.E we are building a project for Larsen & Toubro Ltd. I amcurrently working on a project called “Coil Drive”. Coil Drives are a type of contactors. Coil Drives are designed in such a way that it can be directly connectedto high-current load devices. It is used to switch a large amount of electrical power through its contacts. In industries high power motors are being used and so veryhigh voltage is required to run them. Heat losses are at a greater extent. No devicecan work above a pre determined temperature value. Power saving is a veryimportant aspect that should be considered. Hence Coil Drives are used in devicesto switch more than fifteen amperes of current or in circuits which are rated morethan a few kilowatts. Coil Drives take only required amount of voltage and hencereduces losses. It is being controlled by a microcontroller. It is mostly used for devices consuming more power. It saves substantial amount of power and henceallows the coil to stay cooler. This device is designed with features to control andsuppress the arc. Working in the project has taught me to divide responsibilitiesamongst the fellow team members, and work as a unit for the completion of theproject.
