Born and brought up in a business Family

Born and brought up in a business family all my life I had the desire to follow my grandfather and father bring new innovations to our existing pharmaceutical family business During my holidays while assisting my father with the office work production in the factory I had a vision of expanding our existing business in different fields Keeping this in mind I opted for Commerce with Maths in Senior Secondary School scoring 95 in both Accounts and Business Studies in 12th grade As planned during school I took up the Bachelors in Business Administration program from NMIMS Mumbai for my undergraduate training The decision was guided with the concentration towards learning of business ideas comprehensively Having been raised in a safe home condition moving into another city independent from anyone else helped me leave my customary range of familiarity and gave some of its own lessons 

At NMIMS the curriculum exposed me to a wide spectrum of subjects comprising of Strategic Management Financial Planning Marketing Taxation and Operations Furthermore the curriculum required me to work on multiple projects which included a Analysing the business strategy of Tata Motors acquiring JLR b Customising a Financial Plan to achieve financial goals for different individuals with varied age groups c A product launch assignment conducting the sale of fashion accessories targeting college students All these contributed in developing my analytical skills by applying my theoretical learning aptly Along with my academics I took up extracurricular activities like being a part of the digital works committee in the National Level Inter College Festival Vaayu which exposed me to a new field of creative designing I also attended an entrepreneurial workshop which gave extensive insight regarding formulation and running of a start-up which aided me in forming my Business Plan subject in my final year curriculum In my final year after opting for a finance specialisation

Review Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene UHMWPE

Literature Review Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene UHMWPE due to its various properties such as biocompatibility high wear resistance low friction coefficient suitable stiffness and fatigue resistance has been emerged as a proven bearing material for implants in various arthroplasties such as acetabular cups and tibial inserts 13 18 20 Beside the extensive use of UHMWPE in total joint replacements for many years the primary problem is the constant generation of wear debris resulting from articulation against the metallic parts These wear particles induced osteolysis and aseptic loosening and has been considered as critical failure which limits the service life of prosthesis 21 In order to consider the former concern i e wear resistance the process of crosslinking or irradiation of UHMWPE are used and highly cross linked PE 22 However main interest continues to refer the long term oxidation of highly cross linked UHMWPE following the formation of free radicals during the process of irradiation These free radicals may responsible for continuing long term reactions hence leading to oxidative degradation in the presence of molecular oxygen 23 24 and transforming UHMWPE into brittle polymer with disappointing performance 25 Many orthopedics manufacturers have utilized the process of high energy radiation accompanied by the thermal stabilization processes to stabilize the cross linked polyethylene against oxidation Both of these processes appear to optimize the wear resistance of highly cross linked UHMWPES which usually take place below annealing or above re melting the melting transition temperature of 1 2 UHMWPE Anyhow the actual crystallinity of the polymer is decreased by re melting consequently influencing the polymer s mechanical properties such as yield and ultimate stress but annealing maintains these properties 26 Moreover as during annealing process crystals do not melt hence complete oxidative stability is not guaranteed by annealing methods because of the fact that fewer mobile free radicals entrapped within the crystalline phase of polymer do not have the ability of recombination Additionally the manipulation of α tocopherol vitamin E has been considered as the substitute of the thermal stabilization process 27
