Other Thoughts:
For all the things I think, say or do; I follow Rotary’s four way test by asking myself four questions
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and better FRIENDSHIP?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned
And most of the time, I am assured of the best way forward.
Advice For New Professionals:
Take decisions, what you would have taken as an owner in the same situation. Always give your best till the last moment of your association with certain company or project
Working Life Management:
I believe; for an entrepreneur, there is no separate personal life section. Work has to be a priority until the venture reaches a stage, where strong succession plan is in place. However, I do take time out for social commitments via Rotary International and basic support to family wherever required.
Done Differently:
If required, I will exactly repeat the actions and decisions taken till date. However, some lessons already learnt from previous ventures and implementing it in the interest of career and business.
The Decisions That Matter
When it comes to career, all decisions are equally important. I always tried to ensure good timing of the decisions based on circumstances.
The Journey So Far:
My first entrepreneurial venture was while studying in Class-I, where I manufactured various models of paper camera and sold it in school; later developed many other innovative applications during school. After completing education from IIT Kharagpur, worked in diverse industry segments including Information Technology, Management Consulting, Manufacturing, Education, Retail, Entertainment, Seeds and Food Processing. Recently started TazaBhav, my most recent technology business along with project of establishing chain of multi and super specialty hospitals in Tier-III cities in India.
Changes In The Professional Environment:
Change is a continuous process; we need to adapt to it in the best interest of everyone. One important change over the workplace over the years is SPEED, which is increasing day by day, with the help of communication tools and technology.

Prized Accomplishment(s):

Degrees That Matter:
