In July 2009, I accidentally reached to ISC ( via Google search, when I was searching for interview questions for companies. During those days I used to do preparation about job interviews. Actually I was looking for the job after my M. Tech in 2009. When I learnt how one could earn through knowledge sharing at ISC, I realized that one can earn actually on internet via sharing knowledge and by Google AdSense.

Before 2009, I was looking for online job but did not join any due to scams or fake jobs. I used to contribute mainly to ISC and in those days, I used to write very short articles but day by day my writing got improved and then I got enough confidence to start my first blog ( on blogger platform. It is about helping Mechanical Engineering students. Initially I did not know much about blogging but by experience in ISC and other sites, I learnt some SEO, HTML and other aspects which were necessary for every blogger.

My first blog ( is all about Mechanical Engineering and related stuffs. I normally used to write such content which are rarely available in internet. I give tips on final year projects in mechanical engineering as well as topics based on which students do their project works. Due to large number of colleges in India and over the world, mechanical engineering field which is evergreen will give more students or visitors to my blog.

In 2009, When I joined ISC, I was not aware of the word 'Blogging' but as the time passed and I learnt a lot from Tony John during my stay at ISC, of course I am still contributing to ISC.
