Engineer creates a science innovation lab in the middle of a remote village of Odisha

When you are destined to something greater, the path you choose doesn’t make much difference. This is what can be inferred from the story of Sameer Kumar Misra, who set aside his career as a Mechanical Engineer and started a new journey towards reimagining education system in the rural Odisha. After completing his engineering in Mechanical stream from Manipal University, Jaipur, Sameer worked with a metal recycling industry in Jaipur. During this period, he came across an advertisement of the 13-month SBI Youth for India Fellowship at an SBI ATM centre. Plainly out of curiosity, he applied for this fellowship which takes young people to rural immersion to solve problems of rural India. Little did he know that it will become the turning point of his life.
