I am Divyanshu Pandey (age 20 years) currently pursuing B.Tech. in Food Technology and Management from National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship & Management, Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India since 2014. Under our curriculum we have an unique prestigious village adoption programme as a part of its innovative course curriculum in October 2012, in which NIFTEM faculty along with group of students adopts a village and will nurture it for next four years. During the last Ten visits in different locations of the country, NIFTEM Students adopted 39 villages in 19 States  across India.

Among them we have adopted Tarmala village , District -Muktshar shahib,Punjab and will be nurturing it for next four years with the skills pertaining to building capabilities suiting to emerging job markets, building entrepreneurship spirit, business management competence among students and also making farmers acquainted with advance knowledge on Agricultural Production Technologies, Value Addition Technologies, Food processing Technologies, Technical Support Services and Integrated Technologies.

Apart from the scheduled activities, everyday I use to devote 02 hours from my working schedule to teach and impart the basics of subjects to the students of Government Middle School and Primary School , Tarmala, Muktsar Sahib, Punjab from last two years.

 I have a keen interest to teach and guide the rising generation of our country India. Also I use to guide their parents so that they could motivate their children to pay attention towards the life and its changing scenario.

I get energy and motivation by doing all this because I have strong belief on well said by Shri Dalai Lama that “Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality"   ― Dalai Lama XIV
