Changes In The Professional Environment:
It has changed a lot. But one thing is vital at my joining time one without some level of IQ and fundamental problem solving capability could not become a developer. We have do lot of work delivering solution, in-spite of that developers have better grasp of business logic. Now a day lot improvement of productive software and users friendly user interface.Most developer now well qualified but are Still lag in delivering solution comparatively.

Family Background
I am from middle class family.My grandfather was TATA STEEL, My father was in government service of state of Odisha while mother was a housewife. I have six brother and a sister. Three brother and sister in computer profession with MCA.
Other Thoughts:
I feel there is great gap in R&D field in each segment of science and technology. If your organization not reached certain level most of the case you are under paid. You required certain level of financial freedom to go for dedicated R&D. Also there should system Govt. , PSU, Private sector to boost R&D and hunt talent. Take one example having a massive software industry we very few original vital product like Operating System, Database system etc. Like wise patents or Nobel laureates, Our Top Institute / University ranks below 300 in world ranking. We required more quality education. End Corruption and political system reform.
Job Profile:
As small software house head I have been main architect, lead developer, guide for almost all software solutions provided to government departments , corporations and Private houses backed by few developers, graphics designers. Mainly we expertise in database solutions both desktop and web based.

By which gather lot of knowledge base ,experience and expertise. Which will difficult get at current state of competition .
Role Model:
I like swami Vivekananda for his wisdom ,clear vision, focus , attention, dedication and most important his vision of India through Youth. Same time like Bill Gate being drop out of college , he showed us real knowledge and future vision can make one of the most important person modern technology and richest in world.

One vital thing I like to add though work almost all area for state corporation for years together successfully but not paid properly. When it comes to big money corporations shift to National level Big software houses with money 100 and 1000 times just integrate those proven software. That restrict growth of local small software house. Should they put faith on us and paid accordingly by this time we would seen lot of national level software from here from our state.
