More about myself
The whole world is going on in a mad rush and it could end nowhere. There should be a balance between thriving for more and self-contentment. Once, people identify that and strike that balance things would go steady and healthy.
Initiative to develop a country
Spread the positive thoughts to the immediate circle at work at home and at neighboring places that includes your colleagues, family etc. Before making a compliant or comment on anything one should be able to give some solution for that.
Ensuring success
Trying to gain knowledge in various fields and segments to be able to improve efficiency. And at the same time, trying to spread my knowledge so the rest can follow.
Thoughts on Education system of our country
It is definitely picking up compared to earlier in terms of making it more knowledge based than just results based. However, system should focus more on hiring quality teachers than just filling the positions. Composition of subjects should also be equitable. There should be right balance of History, Geography, Science, Mathematics etc. System should be able to improve the Analytical skills of pupil.
My family background
Father was a Professor in Language and he passed away 11 years ago. Mother is a house wife staying with me. i have 1 sister who is eldest of all siblings and 2 elder brothers, both are entrepreneurs. Married to Gayatri in 1996 and have 3 daughters.
Important decision
For me, choosing the current job/company over 2 other offers that i got 5 years ago proved to be correct though they offered double. I did right calculations. Opting to continue with the same job though offered 3 times more compensation than what i am currently making as current company needs me. On business, i have dropped one customer due to some strategic reasons and it paid off well for the company.
Influenced by
I guess, it is my brothers as mentioned earlier. More than procedures, it was the common principles that we follow in general.
Couple of years from now
May be setting up another company if not making the current company bigger and better.
