Date of document submission for top two candidates at JGEC campus
I passed out BE (Mechanical) from our beloved JGEC in the year 1980.
During inception of this scholarship, I am involved with 'Shell Technology India' at Bangalore Whitefield.
I was with ONGC for 25 yrs in areas like Bombay Offshore, R&D Mumbai, Assam and Agartala establishments, and few other organizations earlier for very brief tenures. I am staying at Bangalore with my wife. We don't have kids. We have an apartment at Mumbai but from my true heart I would like to go back to Jalpaiguri where my late father-in-law built a house, have enough of good friends, maternal relatives, sweet childhood and challenging youth memories. My father was in the Army; settled down at Barrackpore leaving his ancestral roots in present Bangladesh before we were born. We three brothers and one sister had a very humble childhood and youth. Getting in to an engineering college was a very distant dream. I remember how my family expenses used to be at extreme stress supporting my studies and hostel expenses, the hope was of good days ahead; I don't know if it is fulfilled even today.
As a humble tribute to my father (Late Harendra Nath Sharma); I would like to offer a scholarship to one from a most disadvantaged family; who is expected to value good attitude and moral.
