STATEMENTOF PURPOSEGrowingup as a child, summer vacations were always like a short term semesters where Iget chance to explore zones to which I was giving less time at school. Suchengagements made me experience Classical music, Karate, Art and Craft. One ofthe cherished take away as a result of my exploration is a state 3rdprize for a painting competition on pollution but as the days passed into highschool this enthusiasm was dominated by academics. My thoughts started learningtowards construction field as I started to visit the construction site of theschool founded by my parents. At this point a strong desire transpired in mymind that I should be the creator in my chosen field.Tomake my desire tangible I earned my B tech degree from VNR VJIET, one of bestcolleges for Civil Engineering in state.
My college acted as platform to fulfilmy quest of knowledge in all domains, taking my study beyond just the fourwalls of my classroom by keeping myself occupied with numerous industrialvisits. In this process of progression I visited CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre, a platinum rated Greenbuilding where I learnt construction in Urban areas can be done while savinggreen areas and using more natural resources. Survey of India provided me a base to know how the mapping of anarea is done using ground techniques and GIS. I was astonished and feltfortunate to have known about INCOISwhich provides information of upcoming ocean disasters beforehand, also helpsfishermen accomplish their livelihood. A wise use of technology always givesits fruits. Keerthi Industriesplayed a major role in introducing me to the industrial organization,functioning and manufacture of cement.
Camping there for 3 days taught me howan individual responsibility brings success to the industry. All these visitsonce again escalated flair to reintroduce my summer semester concept byinterning at Construction of HyderabadMetro Rail by L&T and Hi Rise building for a period of 1 month, helpedme to gain understanding on the connection between designs and itsimplementation on site. It gave me a chance to explore various departments likestructural planning, architectural planning, and the construction strategy fromvarious perspectives but what regaled and excited me was the cogitation howsuch a big construction project was designed considering its use for 100 years andimplemented so perfectly to reach the need of larger people.Withmy zeal to take up challenges, I participated in a number of competitions andgave my best. A state second best project on ‘Laserbased discharge measurement of canal’ gave me the opportunity to prove mydesigning skills of prototype.
Such opportunities and my academic position mademe team lead for a team of 5 in my major project. This societal project on reducingthe congestion on roads using simulation technique was recognised as bestproject in Civil Engineering department at institute level. I am confident that my Engineering knowledge, leadershipskills, ability to produce proficient designs will be an asset for any projectsI undertake.Apartfrom academics in college I am proud to be in association with National ServiceScheme(NSS) unit of our college. The experience I got by documenting andorganizing various events like Blood Donation, Career vision programs fordestitute students was indeterminate.
Conducting camps addressing various issuesin villages for 3 days made me realize the power of design along with aninsight into social change. Those years of association with NSS shifted myperspective that any service organisation not only gives opportunity forsharing people’s ups and downs but also makes us understand and learn fromsituations.Afterofficially finishing my graduation I stepped out into real world for full timeexploration of design as my artistic spirit wandering for its frame.
Then Iintroduced myself to the new software like 3DS Max, V Ray, Illustrator, AfterEffects through a diploma course. This knowledge made me a colour consultantand designer at ‘Aapka Painter’, a start up in India for more than 20 projectsin the span of 2 months. My performance and smart work made a freelancer for aninterior design project. All these experiences are driving forces in choosingMaster’s program. My application for TexasA&M University stems from my desire to study at one of the bestUniversities in the world. I am fascinated by the vision of university focusingdesign exploration integrated with the practicalities of a professional life, this helps mein reciprocating the pleasure of art for the people who are experiencing mydesigns. Frommy internationalist perspective as a traveller I realised the businessworld has become rapidly integrated across once restricted borders and anyonewith high goals in the business world must have an international perspectiveand be aware of the realities of different international arenas. I am unique,and uniquely fortunate, to have a diverse background both academically andprofessionally which has exposed me to different people, cultures, andlanguages.
As a native of India, I am familiar with the increasingly importantmarkets of this region, and such I am thoroughly prepared for the demands andchallenges presented and form a successful label of my own by undertaking studyat your institution. It would be my privilege to workunder the guidance of Mr.XXX and get motivated to be successful designerrestoring —— though my bachelors is from Civil Engineering.
I am passionate about art, business and helping people. I ampursuing design as a profession because I see it as a promising career pathwhere these three can go hand in hand. I believe the notion of Alvar Aalto whosaid, “Building art is a synthesis of life in materialized form” and I want torealize my dreams and give a shape to my imaginations with my understanding ofthe gaps in the present society. I am thankful for giving me this opportunity.
