Questions contributed by Mr. Anirban Kundu.

As per Anirban “Brimming with contagious energy and ready wit, Anirban is the jack of all trades (master of some). An entrepreneur in the making, he dreams of being on the cover of TIME one day. Don’t be surprised if you have seen him before on television (on shows like NSE History TV18 Young Pioneers). This year he was also a semifinalist in NDTV Croma TechGrandmasters-3.  He has an interesting wish to be on the Google Doodle someday. Anirban’s motto in life – dream. believe. achieve.”
