Science and technology can solve all the world's problems, and historically it has been shown to make the world better and better. - Zoltan Istvan 

Description: Started just as a personal blog for hosting & sharing assignments, practical files & daily class notes, we have traveled a very long journey. when I created the blog I would have never thought that one day this could become this huge. Initially, when the blog started it was only limited to my college (IIST) I was barely getting a few hundred visits. In my first year of college. I had a Samsung Galaxy Y, my brother gave it to me when he upgraded his phone, its camera (2mp) sucked, its internal memory was only 162mb & it got full after just installing Whatsapp. back in those days, I had to borrow my classmate's phones for taking the pictures,  then email those pictures to me then sort them and convert them to PDF when I get back home. My friends (Anoop Mehra, Akash Chaubey, Amit Rawat) helped me a lot by trusting me enough to give their phones to take the pictures, my other classmates also pitched in time to time but these 3 were always there to help. Even after this tedious process & all this hard work, I was only getting a few hundred monthly visits. I got so frustrated & furious that I decided to kill the project & I even did it. I deleted the blog, transferred the admin rights of the FB page to my brother & deleted my FB account and moved on.

Then after a few days, my brother told me that he received a message on the FB page.

Then my other batch mates also started asking the same thing and encouraged me to start it again, they told me that they found my blog really helpful & they would try to help me in every way possible to make my life a little bit easier. So, thanks to this guy Piyush & Muskan Yadav (from my college) for the encouragement. If you guys haven't encouraged me & my classmates haven't supported me, I wouldn't have created RGPV.

I also want to thank all the other people who were working & supporting me in the background, some of them were Abhinav Jain & Anoop Tiwari, Akshansh Dubey, Akash Sharma, Arpit Jain & Atishay Sarva(from my college), Akshita Jain from IPS. I should also thank Ankit Shrivastav for making a somewhat similar website & being my competitor for some time and then partnering with me in managing the blog, without his help this long road would have been longer. Also thanks to all my haters, the satisfaction of proving you guys wrong help me a lot in keep moving forward.

Problem: Other than our syllabus changing every few weeks the problem, the problem we were facing was that we all were super excited & we all wanted to bunk classes, to go nearby locations with our friends & enjoy our college life. So I wanted to find a way to bunk my classed but still submit my assignments & practical files on time so that our faculty show some mercy at the time of internals.

Solution : Since clicking pictures or storing the PDFs on my phone was not an option I thought why not create a website & host everything there?. I already worked on a few blogger based blogs so I already knew how to make a blog, I knew how to host my files where they can be downloaded easily so I thought why not?

That's how at some point in 2015 I started this. Just a teenager trying to solve a problem with the resources & knowledge I had.

Our journey was awesome, we helped a lot of students & faculties. One of my favorite moments was when my classmates send me a picture of one of our faculty teaching our class by using our website & recommending to use it. (as usual, I was bunking the class, wish I would have attended it)

Fun fact: My attendance was never above 20% in any semester still my exam form was never delayed & even after arguing with almost all the faculties of my department and almost getting expelled from the college, my sessional were decent. TL;DR until you want an A+ in-sessional, you can do whatever you want to enjoy your college life, faculties may try to scare you but most probably they will give you decent sessionals.
