It is almost five years that I am regularly posting my views through informative inputs on drishtikona.com. This is the only activity that keeps me busy. I can only say that as usual I am honest to this work too. In recent time, I received few mails that really touched me. While one of the first mail is about my blog that appeared also on biharitimes.com, the rest three are about ‘my writings’ that are available on my site http://www.drishtikona.com. I wish to share them:

I (German student of mechanical engineering) found in the internet your interesting homepage with your writings. Especially the body welding, the painting and the final assembly is very interesting.
Are these publications also available in a book. Or are they part of a publication, that is available for order?
Thanks in advance.
Dear Mr. Sharma,
I am student at the University of Toronto and am doing a project on automotive final assembly for my final project. I came across your blog and your chapters on automobile manufacturing will be of great help to me. I was just wondering if you might have some links, references or other resources which you used in the writing of the book (especially of chapters 6, 7 and 8) and which I might be able to use to gain a more in-depth understand of the subject matter contained therein.
Thank you sincerely for any help you might be able to provide,
It gives me immense pleasure that some few are using whatever I wrote either for sharing my knowledge from my professional career or to keep myself engaged at this age of 70. I also wished to provide advices to the organizations, which could have used it more effectively, but I didn’t find many honest knowledge seekers.
But I believe, ‘they also serve who stand and wait’.
