I have completed 2 years as a lecturer, then I have joined a marketing company Methodex Infres Ltd, selling Minolta Japan, Office Automation Products, in 1989) as I was always fascinated for a marketing job, to meet new people, explore new avenues etc.

My role model
Dhirubhai Ambani, from a modest start he become a multi billion dollar conglomerate, by his sheer guts, confidence on himself, and his ability to deliver what is promised.
Thoughts on Education system of our country
India need more vocational based education that theory. We churn out over 18 lakhs Engineers and Over 15 lakhs Business Management graduates every year, how many of them are employable? Education system will improve only when you have more personal contacts, understand the expectation of the students, make them more responsible towards their parents and overall towards the whole society, and make them proud to be an Indian. Let them do some social service like helping the old and the needy.
Important lesson learned
When I was in the middle of my career , I lost a lot of money because of Bad Investment Decisions, lot of people cheated me because I trusted them. But I had faith on God, I knew I will bounce back with more vigor, more energy and I will make up 100 times more than what I have lost. Now I am in the progressive mode, I am 100% confident I will make up what I have lost, and over 100 times in the next 10 years.
Important decision
In my previous company as a Vice President, I have coordinated with 6 OEMs simultaneously to get approval for our products, and we become successful among four of them, the entire process took more than 2 years, sometimes we camped in OEM places for over a month, but we were confident, we had patient and it paid off.
More about myself
Be honest, be positive, do not allow your ego and your negative thinking come between you and your goal. Be focused,success will be yours, definitely.
Degree that I recommend
I would like to complete my Doctorate in Literature, sometimes after 12 years when I become 60 years. I would also write motivational books for people those who has lost faith in themselves, bring them back into the systems.
Ensuring success
I read lot of motivational books, I drive and motivate my children in personal life, I drive my team from the front and motivate them, reprimand them in private and appreciate them in public, believe in team work, I'll grow only if I let them grow, because in the highway of life, no one progresses alone, it is the team work which will take you forward.
Qualities needed to become a successful leader
Honesty, ability to confess mistakes even you commit any, confident and self reliant.
He should speak well and should have a good listening skill.

I am a good listener, my attitude is always positive, I really see opportunities during adverse situations, and I try to get any adverse situation to turn positive and in our favor.
