    I am pursuing a 2 year Post Graduate Diploma Human Rights from National Institute of Human Rights Delhi. Also I am a Post Graduate in English, “a 2006 pass out from Himachal Pardesh University”. I belong to Himachal Pardesh and my native place is Jaisinghpur in Kangra District.

    I born in Chandigarh and brought up in Patiala. Now days I am working with an American Bank Quatrro, Gurgaon as an associate of its legal cell. My total experience is of 3-4 years.
