I am K. Rajarao, man of chemistry. I mean, I am a teacher who teaches chemistry to young minds and try to generate their interest in chemistry. I found students find chemistry not boring ( as I try to relate behaviour of chemicals/molecules with the human behaviour many a time) but yes they find it difficult to remmeber the chemistry concepts...specially, in organic chemistry.

I want inter-disciplinary nature of chemistry and its day-to-day uses and also loads of activities/demonstrations and experiments which can pull them towards the subject and also find it more interesting.
