Challenges faced in job
I actually love the work I do, I always had vision of doing things differently from other people - and I started a company keeping that vision in my mind.

Few things in the ways were difficult like finding the right people for the job, than training them to work and keeping the highest standard.
Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'
In the technical world, lot of people have made tremendous progress. And there are lots of products in the market produced by India, but not to the scale where we would like them to be, but still I guess progress is there and in future we'll have big things coming from India as well.
My achievement
I have always been a leader starting from the gully cricket to being president of my college, and now leading a team of 50 young guns.
Books recommended
I use to read lot of books - I generally like biographies, so may be people who are in our field might like to read steve jobs biography, Facebook Effect and Google Story.
Company and job profile
Currently I hold the position of CEO at The App Guruz, Rajkot, Gujarat. Prior to it I did my Masters Degree in Computers in the year of 2009 and in the same year, I started a software company along with my friends in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

My company, The App Guruz is focused on mobile technologies like iOS and Android. We basically work on Mobile games and Mobile Apps.

My job is to decide the long term strategies for the company and steering the company in right direction.
Being different
As an engineer I can always analyse things technically and can think of solving problem in step wise manner, and taking one step at a time leads to a better problem solving approach.
Goals and Ambitions
I would definitely like to have a much bigger office with all the sports facilities available in the premise itself (being a very big fan of all the sports and games)
I would also like to increase the number of people in our team.

We are moving towards products, so hopefully we'll have something substantial within next 2-3 years.
My role model
As such I dont particularly follow anyone, so I dont have any role model. I simply follow one rule of being honest in whatever I do.
My important career decision
My dad is a successful entrepreneur in construction business, so I could have joined him in his business pretty easily since I am the only male child in the family. But I was always interested in computers and wanted to make my career in computers only.
I did my internship in MNC in Bangalore, but never quite liked the work, so instead of joining the company for job, I started my own company - so I guess thats the most important career decision I made (till date).
Family Background
My dad is an entrepreneur is in construction business. Mom is house wife. Elder sister is married.
Current Trends
We are mainly into mobile development. This field is changing at rocket high speed, so its not easy to predict the trends as such. But I always believe that if you are strong with your basics, other things just build on top of that. So, whatever changes would be there we would be always rock solid.
In near future, I don't see any other mobile OS giving competition to Android or iOS.
My strongest Skill
I am very honest and I really like the work we do at our company, so I guess those two things are the strongest attributes.
