"Seconds of immortality."

NIFT (written and situation test) i scored 96th rank, i have chosen for leather design among all of the other courses because i always wanted to be a elite person and leather symbolizes richness itself its quite life changed experience to choose nift as my upcoming career because i was a medical student and leaving a medical college for designing was too difficult and risk taking decision but ultimately i know me and my decisions designing is the only thing left in this world which is best for me.
