Initiative to develop a country
Today sociol-economic offences are on high which are also known as 'white collar crimes' in which professionals are involved and is committed by them in the course of their occupations. This crime either effect the health and material welfare of the community as a whole or the country's economy. The motive behind the commission of such offence is greed for money and corruption is the root cause of this criminality. This is the main hindrance in the development of the country. Corruption should be abolished and a professional should never be a part of any form of corruption.
Important lesson learned
I am not a big thinker but one thing I have learnt and experienced is that "Hard work pays you back, there's always something good in the store for you. Never get disappointed and keep trying. Learning is the best attitude a person should posses to succeed.
Couple of years from now
I believe in hard work and destiny. Destiny - No one knows, but if I will have to answer this based on the hard work and the attitude I poses with me, I will be a part of elite group of senior leadership, where I will be in position to take independent decisions to enhance the company offerings for the market as well for the society as a CSR activity.
Qualities needed to become a successful leader
" Learning attitude ", "Communication" and " Ability to Inspire" are essential qualities a leader posses.
My family background
Born in a middle class family and My father was working for army and mother was a housewife. Elder among 3 siblings and normally we used to transfer along with my father postings.
Thoughts on Education system of our country
Education system in India is moving towards a stage where if your father have money you can study well and this system have created a measure difference between the society. Education plays a very important role in development of a society and that results in country development. We should not have biased education system for different class of society, whereas it should be same for all. Everyone should get equal opportunity and equal support for education.
Important decision
Job change based on the roles and responsibility then that of salary and that really helped me in my growth.
Ensuring success
Self development via training's, increasing professional network - I always try to meet 1 new person everyday to increase my social and professional network. In touch with my past mates/superiors. I always try to help anyone in need with my ideas and suggestions based on my experience.
More about myself
A suggestion, in current industry trend I have seen people shifting jobs because of salary hike despite of knowing whether they are eligible for the profile they are offered or not and at some stage they get victimized. Because in current world of outsourcing most of the companies offer salary based on what they get from their client and to full fill the requirements ASAP to make money and once they are done the individual suffers.

Evaluate yourself before taking any assignment and ask self questions like are you eligible for this? Do you have the capabilities to sustain the growth?
