A great over-all experience, the program provided me opportunities to learn new things and discuss my doubts related to my subject. I feel blessed to get mentor like Dr. Rajan who gave me new ideas to think on various research topics available in Geometrical optics. I would like to thank IVI for the support and cooperation provided.” – Darshan Dave, Lecturer, Nagar School of Optometry, Ahmedabad.
