Unravel the Genius in you… Just like Neha did for herself

Being proactive is among the great virtues of a king that Valmiki lists in Ramayana. “This is what the Sage termed agravashi, or the one who initiates conversation”, writes Subroto Bagchi in his new book The Professional. “This self-confidence is not about who you are; it is about how well you are conversant with your efforts in making them persistently going on and then analyzing where the efforts could lead.
In everyday life, the greater the amount of concentration an individual can muster in himself/herself, the greater is the share of success.
Miss Neha Lalit Sharma has attached to her name innumerable kudos and accolades which makes her a class apart at a very young and tender age.

A Novel Writing Aid  LIPI (Letting Infirm to Pen their Ideas), a device for the infirm who find writing difficult, including senior citizens afflicted with any disease or injury limiting their ability to write, or those having physical impairment specifically that of the digits of the hand involved in writing process, or those who have either lost any of the digits of hand including thumb or have them missing, or the professionals and students whose writing for a long period of time results in fatigue of the digits and hand, and the likes.
Mathematical interpretation and analysis of the act of writing (under normal conditions) was worked out confirming the factors responsible for ultimate writing fatigue. To overcome the limitations, a suitable device was designed and developed. The prototype of this device was tried and tested by a number of persons with physical impairment, missing digits including thumb, and senior citizens.
Neha entails taking conscious control over her life, setting her own priorities and goals and working actively to achieve them rather than waiting passively for opportunities. She is ready to chase her dreams to the last lees till they turn into reality for the good of the society. Are you all set to unravel the genius in you?
