We make sure that we have the infrastructure for them to have focus, we have gotten a platform of computers where they can do proper research into the program itself”.
“Gone were the days when it was more theory, but these days when they see these things graphically it helps them in terms of the memory and we are sure it’s going to be a beneficial outfit to help them to win this time.”

Our connection with them is very key and we think that relationship is very important because it will boost their morale and confidence which will help them to win this year”.
