My goal in life is to contribute, help and enable the people in understanding and consequently protecting their heritage. Heritage and culture are two things that go hand in hand, take one away and the other crumbles. I wish to make heritage physically accessible to the public and this can be done in two ways, building awareness about it and secondly conserving and preserving the heritage for succeeding generations. Conservation did not come naturally to me, it was only while I was working with the museum did I realize my direction in life and I have till date done everything to pursue my passion with dedication and faith in myself that I can in make a difference.
