What’s your best childhood memory about reading in a library?
I did my primary education from a rural area and we did not have a library back then. Instead, we did group studies with eight or more people for the student scholarship.

Which is the most innovative packaging that you have come across?
Logitech mouse packaging. The packaging is not only visually attractive but is also functional. The packaging itself unfolds into a mouse pad making the product unique. It makes this product standout in an overcrowded display by creating a seamless pattern of detailing.

How can digital printing help in boosting creativity and consumer connection through packaging?

  • First, the makeready time of digital prints is almost negligible, which is an important factor to be considered in the current packaging industry.
  • Second, digital printing provides variable outputs enabling personalisation and customisation for short run jobs as per the customer requirements.

Would you rather be like Einstein who is good with numbers, or Shakespeare who is good with words? Why?
Einstein, because his inventions were for the best interest and progress of the human race.

Social media has become the newest way of promoting packaging innovations or learning about the newest trends in packaging. Why?
In today’s time, people are spending most of their time on social media. Due to this, with the help of advanced technologies, one can connect with individuals faster and quite easily.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I was the University topper in my final year of engineering.
