Portrait

Upon clearing the PET , PMT & B.Pharma entrance tests he was disappointed to be able to choose only one of the three careers.

His craving was for all three. A trishul of degrees. But now a puzzling, self-imposed Hobson's Choice! Finally took the MBBS path which led him to an MD (Medicine). Not satisfied with a mere clinic, he decided on an entrepreneurial venture Charak Hospital, Indore . To run Charak an MBA was in order and was soon obtained. Followed by a pharmaceutical unit Theta Labs Ltd., Indore.

Thus, two of the three cravings were somehow met.

Destiny then brought him to the Dainik Bhaskar Group . The career path from medicine careened into the world of newspapers and further compounded the already complex formulation! To survive without a philosophical fall-back was unthinkable. So an M.Phil was sought. And got.

The engineering craving got a hefty serving with this foray into the fourth estate. Now, specialising in relationship engineering , and supposedly living in Delhi; but, actually, out of a suitcase mostly.

Being Executive Director of the Dainik Bhaskar Group – (India's largest newspaper group), is both challenging and satisfying and he (tries to) deliver by – designing situations, leveraging networks mobilising thinkers & energising strategizers. Yes, its hard work. For them. Trust you get the gist.

During his abundant free time he is a regular columnist writing fortnightly for the Dainik Bhaskar - Power Gallery, husband, father, doctor, philosopher and trouble-shooter-in-chief.

Well, that is about it.
