Feeling proud and motivated on receiving the award, Dr Vinod shared: “Through continuous efforts in the field of my subject including computational linguistics workshops, researches and more, I want to prove that even a Hindi language student is as much able as of any other subject or stream.” Very humble and humane, Dr Vinod wants to bring total happiness in the society as he feels: “How can I be in a progressive and prosperous state if persons around me are living in pitiable conditions.
