Ensuring success
I have started my life from one room kitchen home in chawls of Girgaum. I can say that in this 13 years I have grown up and developed my self to established my self independently gave me a courage to take bold decisions. I have left a hafty monthly package being the top management person and I have started my own management consultancy and financials advisory company.

I have still more dreams which I have to accomplish and planned out the way to become a sucessful enterprenure along with serving the society.

I am in the process of venturing new projects which are in negotiation stage. I am confident to accomplish that in coming days.
My role model
My role model is my father being focus and goal oriented. He has not only made his own life but also contributed a lot to the life of others.
Thoughts on Education system of our country
I think the education system is burdonsome. There is only a stressed competition which is not productive. There are multiple boards and difference in their teaching proces as well as the evaluation. Because of the excellent technology development and awareness about that in kids I suggest to have the more of practical education rather than mere bookish knowledge. Mastering the kids in language, group discussion, presentation etc. covering various topics of different subjects. The evaluation would also based on that.

By taking the advantage of technoloigy like educom smartclass / setting up the projectors and make best use of various educational CDs, we can provide the education to the rural India. The Government along with companies like educomp, tata, sundaram etc should come together and provide the quality education to the interior part of India where the teachers are not available to teach.
Initiative to develop a country
Our country has excellent Human Assets. But we are unable to take advantage of this.

As per my view, there are many intelligent students who are not studying further due to their financial constraint. They are willing to study but can not afford the cost of classes, books etc.

I suggest that each professional should devote one to two hours a week and teach such students and help them to complete the graduation / post graduation courses. Such students can be employed in the organisation. After completion of their education, they can do job or be a self employed. This will help to make such class of people independent by earn and learn together. This will certainly contribute to India to being develped.

I can share a simple eg. We had given a computer training to our office boys and made them well equiped in MS Word, Excel etc. Now after completing their external office work they do the work on computer like voucher entry, typing etc where there is no application of mind.
Degree that I recommend
I am open to learn which ever new comes as well add values to my career. Considering the same i have completed various degrees / certificates from ICAI, ICSI and ICFAI. I regulary updates myself with the help of our professional magazines and studcy circle conducted by the institutes.
My achievements
The biggest challenging and proud creating event was when I have left the company to start up my own set up and move forward to accomplish my dream.

Otherwise, the acheivements like got the rank and coming in the meritlists, the youngest to head the team of 20 people and finalise the financials having turnover of Rs. 3,000 crores, got the appreciation note from seniors and awards from the management are also making me proud.
My family background
My father was working with ANZ Grindlays Bank. He got retire in 1997 when I had not even completed my graduation. He has kept him busy since then by doing all social activities. My mother is housewife. I am having elder sister who is married. My brother in law is CA and guiding me a mentor. My wife is Tax and Investment advisor and operating from home. My family is extremely supportive. They are strength of my life. They are the contributor of all my acheivements and the place where I am in my profession.
Influenced by
No body as suc influenced me in my life. My family has given a great space and freedom to me to accomplish what I want to acheive. Yes, I can say my Brother in Law has influenced me a most in my life because of his transperancy, honesty, huminity and I love him, respect him and trust him a lot.
