I played an important role in planning and execution of Project Sahara (joint initiative of Rural Entrepreneurship Division (RED) of CEL and Enactus BITS Goa.)  The main aim of the project was to make women skilled enough to run their business on their own without the help of students. Currently we have two groups of women, one in Zari making Gel Wax Candles and the other one in Merces making shell based handicrafts.I co-ordinated, scheduled and performed various tasks like market research, surveys, negotiations, sales, travel, cost minimization, profit maximization, basic accounting etc. This  goal project apart from helping the women become independent was to get the students involved  to get a sense of real markets and business practices.

Report on Muhammad Ali Jinnah and his theory of Nationalism

Modern Political Concepts, BITS Goa
Oct 2014Dec 2014

 Worked in a team of 3 members. This essay pointed out how Jinnah started as a secular politician fighting for a united independent India but gradually changed to an Islamic Nationalist or Communalist. It analyzes Jinnah’s thoughts and feelings, which eventually led to the formation of the Muslim-dominated country of Pakistan. This essay also seeks to compare his political ideology to that of some other Islamic political thinkers like Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Abul Ala Maududi and Syed Husain Ahmed Madani, who were active during the same time as Jinnah.

Worked in a team of 3 members. The purpose of this report is to see if  an argument can be built  for the legalisation of Cannabis and Cannabis related products. We will discuss the Historical, Cultural, Scientific, Judicial and Economic impact of Marijuana and it’s legalisation in India. We have also conducted a survey to get a more “on-field” view of marijuana from the age bracket of 18-24, and what they think of the legalisation of marijuana. We have studied both the pros and cons of legalisation and its effect on different strata of Indian society and built the report around this.
