Most Important Decisions
There are few decisions I made in my life that brought me to the stage where I am. I decided to come to US for Master's instead of doing in India. Then I decided to continue to do my PhD instead of looking for a job. I think these two helped me to gain good expertise in my field.
Most Important Lessons
The lesson I learnt from my professional life is I have to do more research on any topic before I take decision on that.
