Amit thinks on those places where the limitations arise. This is what makes him a special person in the world of web technology. He has made the nation proud of his achievements. It is not just him who is enjoying this limelight, India feels rewarding to have him as a blogging professional. Although, Amit would have picked business as an easy option for his career due to his family background, he decided to take something different.
Amit’s instinct and his amazing knowledge in web apps have brought him this level of recognition. Instead of choosing an easy way round to make money, he opted for a smarter way. I am amazed to look at such people who do things differently without anyone’s support. It is no doubt that challenges arise with every step of success you take. Amit has successfully and smoothly climbed the stairs of success.
Being a studious student and a top engineer, Amit could have found a very attractive job opportunity; however despite the distractions, he followed his dreams. He is humble and modest to people who look forward to gauge some knowledge from him. It is a sign of a true professional, who believes in spreading knowledge than keeping it like a secret.
