Being a tech fanatic does not mean that he is a kind of person who is not into other things. In his free time, you can find him watching cartoons (Yeah! It is not written somewhere that a grown up man can’t watch cartoon). He is also fond of listening stories, socializing and interactive kind of stuff such as brainstorming on cool ideas, interacting with curious people, learning interesting things, etc.

Intelligent gadgets and micro-robotics also excite him.

“Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem and a big idea turn into an innovation.”

Harsh is always fascinated by the innovation happening in the field of computer science and wants to explore untouched fields. And with these innovations, he wants to create the opportunities to solve the Real World problems.

Taking forward the legacy of achievers from Youstart Labs, he is a MEAN Stack developer at PTC. We wish him all success in his future endeavors.


The purpose of this article is to celebrate the success and achievements of a student, we were lucky enough to have him for an internship in Jaipur. This article written at Youstart Labs, Jaipur is also to help current students in getting a better idea of what they can do during summer training and internships to land their dream job. We love to share such success stories of our interns and past students we have mentored.

On another note, we are also looking for summer interns.
