About Me

I am Bhupesh Yagnik, Principal (GES Class-I) teaching in Biotechnology, Environmental Science and Health-hygiene degree courses. Presently also administering Science college and BCA colleges as Principal. I strive to bring in latest IT feature to assist learning processes. 

My mantra for life, there is no substitute for hard work. Personally, I believe in free access to software and life-saving drugs for every human being, with little monopoly to right owners. In my view, National interest is at top of everything else, for which I support equal opportunity for all.
