Project manager and structural engineer, Pankaj Saharia enjoys traveling around the world. Born in India, Mr. Saharia has spent the last few decades studying and building bridges in the United States. He has traveled extensively, especially through Europe. He believes that traveling is important for everyone, as it has many things to teach people from all walks of life.
International travel allows travelers to break out of their shell and normal routines. Not only does travel give a person the chance to explore their world, but also to learn new things about themselves. The ability to gain a new perspective is invaluable in both a personal and professional capacity. Traveling also allows people like Mr. Saharia to learn about new cultures and other ways of life. Meeting locals is one of his favorite things to do when he travels. This gives him the chance to balance his own ideas against the life styles and methods used by others.
When considering his career, travel is important to any structural engineer who wishes to expand his or her thinking and creativity. Being able to see how other nations and cultures develop and construct their own buildings, bridges, and structures gives him inspiration toward his own projects. Pankaj Saharia from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts hopes to continue his world travels in the decades to come. This will allow him to spread his knowledge and innovative designs while also learning new techniques that can influence his creations in Massachusetts and beyond.
