I am a workaholic person, so in my free time also, I like to be involved in something :).
ACM is an educational and scientific society which works with the motto of “Advancing Computing as a Science and Profession”. The ACM IIT Delhi Student Chapter was established in 2002 to address the needs of the IIT Delhi computing community. I have been involved in the ACM IITD activities from 2 years. I served as Web and Creative Head for the session 2011-12 and currently serving as Chairman and leading a team of 25 members.
I have developed an interest for video editing over my years at IIT. Although, still a Beginner, I enjoy learning. Few of the previous works include Promotional Video for BSA, IIT Delhi, which is the Sports' Body for IIT Delhi, Farewell Video for CS07 Batch and few Surprise Birthday Videos for my close friends :).

Student Mentorship Program is a student initiative, run by IIT Delhi students, to make sure that the transition of freshers into IIT life is smooth. Every fresher joining IIT Delhi is assigned a mentor who is like a friend and guide for the fresher's stay at IIT Delhi and helps him analyze various options at different stages of IIT life. I served as Mentor for CS11 Dual Degree Students and was awarded Best Mentor for the session 2011-12.
College Fests are an important part of our IIT Life and being in the organizing team helps you nurture your leadership, organizational and overall personality brush-up. I have been involved in few of them and have handled responsibilities of varied nature.

I have also done Publicity during Rendezvous, 2010, IIT Delhi's Cultural Extravaganza and Marketing during Sportech, 2011, The Annual Sport's Festival.
