Great Mentor, Motivator, Speaker and Leader

I am highly grateful to Prof. V.K. Nangia who mentored me for three years and had a major influence in my leadership development during my undergrad at IIT Roorkee. Prof. V.K. Nangia is a great mentor, motivator, speaker, leader and one of the best in the field of management studies. Under his guidance, I led 60 B.Tech. students of IIT Roorkee for almost three years for ‘Students’ Initiative for Integrated Rural Development (SIIRD)’ now matured as Unnat Bharat Abhiyan. Every interaction and meeting with him were full of wisdom, philosophy, foresight, professionalism and I learnt many great qualities from him. He was, he is, and he will always be a source of inspiration for me and many other IITR alumni to work for the welfare of humanity and social service.
