Family Background
From rags to riches my parents have taught us two brothers to work hard and succeed in the right direction.
Role Model:
Andrew Carnegie
Other Thoughts:
I will when i have million dollars in my pocket. (till then i will save)
Changes In The Professional Environment:
There is significant change in the method of delivery of task at in terms of time and cost optimization, quality control techniques, precise understanding (awareness) of the target to be achieved by both sides of the projects.
Working Life Management:
Pay attention to boss when in office, pay attention to wife when at home.
Done Differently:
Made a quick start at the African business initiative to be one of the first few entrants in the emerging market.
Degrees That Matter:
I recommend MBA (Infrastructure) with specialization in Infrastructure & Project Finance. Many B-Schools across India these days have started offering exclusive teaching in core infrastructure sectors. IIMs and all the other 2nd and 3rd tier schools have introduced Infrastructure as mainstream subject apart from the conventional Finance, Marketing, HR. Before getting into any of the school please do read the course structure, know about the faculty staff, analyze the placement records and align it with your long term relation with infrastructure business. I would most certainly recommend my school (TERI University, New Delhi) for both its courses i.e. MBA (Infrastructure) and MBA (Business Sustainability). The uni. has eminent faculty staff and the placements have improved after the slow down (please don't expect salaries like the IIMs but certainly enough to give you a better start).
The Decisions That Matter
Taking up a lead in African Business and venturing out of India to make contribution to Infrastructure Sector (Urban Infrastructure, Agriculture, Health Care, Industrialization) along with Indian business was one of the major leaps of my career till now. This helped me see new geographies, meet new professionals and learn my service sector better.

Advice For New Professionals:
Work Hard, Save More, Share a lot.
Professional Strengths:
Strategy Formulation, Cost Optimization, Negotiations and Public Relations
Career Profile:
My responsibilities mainly include commercial due diligence, market studies, business structuring, transaction advisory (public private participation), financial modeling, project structuring and implementation hand holding.
Growth Strategy:
Maintain strong business relations with past and present peers, clients and business acquaintances. Ensure that my knowledge base is updated with latest trends, technologies and information relating to my service domain.
