That was my lone leisure activity! And afterward there was a Tamil children magazine which got distributed month to month once, I actually recollect how I would hold back to get it! Not exclusively to understand it however it got some cunning activities that energized me to such an extent. I believe that is the place where my affection for creates began. Subsequent to tutoring, I joined Electronics and Communication Engineering.
And afterward, circuit graphs were the lone drawings I accomplished for entire 4 years!
