    I hope the issue has been resolved by now. 2020 was full of helping others and brotherhood. And people around the globe have been following safety measures in every action they do.

    Eagerly waiting for 23rd July 2021 for the launching ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. By that time, I will be completing my PGP in data science in a reputed institution in Hyderabad and hopefully be working as a data scientist in a reputed firm. Wish me good luck. Cheers… 🙂
