    It is very interesting to promote solar power in india for rural uplift ment and use solar power for agriculture. I am a resident of India and staying at Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh. I am a retired Principal of Degree and Junior Colleges with a M.Phil and Doctorate in Engineering Mathematics and Applied Mathematics respectively. If am given the necessary land by the government of India or Andhra Pradesh, I am ready to commit my self for the said mission and if necessary I am even ready for any training to be undertaken for the purpose in India or abroad on deputation by the Government. I request proper guidance and assistance for fulfilling my wish.
