  2. Thank you for the interview and the variuos question employ in getting your responses. It is a learning platform for campus members and I must say I have learnt a great deal

  3. Impressive. I really appreciate the fact that you got your idea from through a thought process and realization that losses occur in the peak season for nutritious food and they need to preserve it through a method that preserves and protect nutritious value.

    Being a young person I am quite interested in creating the world, I desire to see and live. I believe that if all young persons have this mind, we will surely recreate the world because we are the future generation. If we recreate our world now, tomorrow will live in the world we desire and our children will see the world in a different perspective from what we are presently seeing and living.
