About me

The pan-cultural influences from my formative years along the banks of Godavari have helped shaped me as a person.

I was born and brought up in a Marwari-Maheshwari household in Rajahmundry, along the banks of Godavari, and was thus exposed to the rich cultural heritage of coastal Andhra Pradesh from a very young age. The pan-cultural influences from my formative years have helped shaped me as a person. The section Early Life explores those years of my life.


Early Life

I believe, there is much to learn from everyone that I meet and hence education for me is a continuous process. The Education tab not only lists my formal schooling and higher education but also the courses and certifications I have undertaken over the years to keep feeding my curious brain. In order to be a good teacher and mentor, it is essential to keep pushing one’s own boundaries of knowledge and be open to new ideas.

The Professional Life chronicles my work so far at XLRI and LBSNAA along with my sabbaticals. Again this is a section that keeps expanding upon. As and when I undertake new adventures in the professional sphere, I shall endeavor to refresh it. As my statement of Teaching Ambitions will also reiterate, I do not believe in education that is separate from practical application. Theory and Praxis must go hand-in-hand.

My work outside of educational institutions (with Startups particularly) has also been recorded, along with my Investment Beliefs.

VISION

... a Sustainable Green Venture that has a social development facet...

It is only a germ of an idea at the moment, and by 2025 I may even be ready to hang up my teacher’s robes and dedicate myself fully to setting up an NGO.

It's always been a passion of mine to give back to the community, and I've tried to do that as an educator.
