Dr. Mangesh Karandikar

After being in business for about 16 years, I found my calling in teaching. I am Director of one of the most prestigious media institutes in India, MET Institute of Media Studies. My core areas of teaching, study and research are Visual Communication, Communication Theory and New Media.
I designed and programmed the world's first app to learn Communication and Media theories - Edusanchar - available on Google Playstore.
I am also a trekker, an amateur flautist and painter, and I also dabble with clay modelling. I love to play the harmonica, a handy instrument to carry.
