I am a father, a husband, a son, and a humble yet determined human being who values relationships and respects core human values of equity and sustainability. I am also a first-generation entrepreneur, and I aspire to create a positive difference in the lives of every human being through the use of engineering and technology.
Over the last 18 years, my work life has enabled me to travel across India and the western world and form lasting friendships worldwide. I love to read and travel. I have been fortunate to experience different cultures across fifteen countries and pan India. I have also been lucky to circumnavigate the globe during one of my business trips.
Feel free to reach out to me; I am interested in non-profit knowledge and experience-sharing initiatives.
The growing intolerance I see across the world wants me to act. I wish to contribute to spreading happiness and togetherness.
For a long time, I didn't start writing because I wanted to be as neutral as possible, without any room for logical fallacies and cognitive biases. I now realize that I am only a human, the only thing a human is good at is in telling a story. Instead of worrying about being 100% neutral, I thought of trying my best to be as neutral as possible and put out my stories. In case I error, let me error on the side of spreading happiness and not spreading hate.
This is easier to explain with an analogy: In modern software development, we follow a process called agile. We do several things simultaneously - we detail out the need, break them into small items, grouping them into logical blocks, design, develop and test. Once a group is completed, we release it for production and focus on routine checks and maintenance.
In the same way, I may only have detailed-out the needs on some aspects. In others, I may have been following them for quite some time with minor modifications here and there, akin to software maintenance. The goal is to constantly identify new areas of improvement, complete earlier improvement goals, and continually be a better version of myself.
Feel free to contact me if you want to help me fix something or make something better. I am always looking forward to opportunities to learn and be a better human being.
