Dr Apurv Shimpi on Winning Innovation Award

Participating in Inter-University research competition Avishkar 2019-20 was an experience by itself. Being a part of a team that is representing your University (Maharashtra University of Health Sciences) was indeed a proud moment by itself, that too for the 3rd time. The first time was amazing in Shivaji Maharaj University, Kolhapur was winning the first prize at the state level was awesome. Apparently second time in Jalgaon, North Maharashtra University, wasn’t so lucky and neither was the 3rd time in Mumbai University, where I did not qualify for the final round.

I know the hard work and efforts put in by all of us. And my 3 teammates winning from MUHS was amazing for us all. There was some dejection of failure, but that’s part of life. At least I thought so. And then came the moment of surprise, my topic, battled in the Engineering and Technology category, won the Innovation Award. What a shocking surprise. (I mean it). Hands started trembling with happiness and excitement. Guess, hard work and dedication, with intelligence and smartness does reap its benefits. Thank you, my team and my co-authors, especially Renuka Hatekar for the love and support.
