Such is one story of Dr. Natika Poddar who has shaped her career so affluently and brilliantly that she has become a sensation in this highly coveted young generation. But to reach the zenith and more to be achieved right now, it was a tremendously long journey of ups and downs, of failures and rejections and now as we stand here today to honour Dr. Natika we feel immensely proud to share her guide to success for the upcoming generation.
