Aspiration of Assamese students on the rise

During the Covid-19, a few brave Assamese boys and girls sailed offshore in search of their destiny, braving heavy odds like the lack of flights, lack of appointments for visas and uncertainty in foreign land. In the most unprecedented times in the history of mankind, now when the world goes through spells of complete lockdown, the youth were clueless about how to deal with this situation. Nevertheless, some brave-hearts embraced challenges with the right spirit and converted them to opportunities.

Dewang Rajkakati is one of them. He left India during the height of the Corona Pandemic in December 2020 after completing B Tech from SRM University. He studied MS from the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA.

He completed his MS in record time in May, 2022 and immediately joined Amazon at their Seattle headquarters in the Alexa AI with a $280000 salary per year.

Dewang Rajkakati, son of Manoj K. Das and Dr. Ajanta Baruah Das, a resident of Dwarka, New Delhi; his sister Priyanka Das Rajkakati is an Astronautical Engineer based in Toulouse, France. Das is former Managing Director of NERAMAC and Director of the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship and a DGM at North Eastern Development Finance Corporation Ltd (NEDFi).  The family originally hails from Dhemaji in the state of Assam, Eastern India. 

Dewang earlier studied at The Mother's International School in New Delhi and for a brief one year in Faculty High School, Guwahati.

“Rajkakati believes that the hard work done with the insistence of getting success never goes in vain.”
