Brief description about me
Apart from being a Trainer-Consultant, I am an Educationist and a Social Activist. Have helped formation and growth of educational institutions. Socially, have advocated Consumer/ Investor Protection RTI Whistle Blower Act Rain Water Harvesting Curbing Corruption Community Radio Good Government
Professionals helping to develop a country
There is more to life than just the Profession. Be politically involved. Join in but remember that entering the arena is not easy. Be socially responsive and responsible.

My Achievments
The love and support that I have been able to give to my children despite being away during their growth period. That they have achieved success on their own steam.   
That I have been able to influence select students, subordinates and organizations.    Some others that I have been able to lend my shoulder to. And some of my writings regardless of their being noticed.
Thought on Indian Education system
The Indian Education System is very rigid, very rote, very segmental, very hierarchical. Not much focus on learning, exploring, challenging the given.    The system needs to be released from the shackles of centralized governance that wish to micro-manage and even dictates which journals a library must buy and from whom.    Give academic freedom to the students. Allow them to explore their own passions. Nothing wrong if a student wishes to combine courses in Science with that in Literature or Architecture. A specialty college, like Medicine must also give some exposure to Arts and Technology.
Most Important decisions
The decisions:
To go abroad to pursue my Ph.D.;
To join a corporate organizations to enrich my Training and Consultancy;
To quit teaching and administration on my retirement.
Couple of years from now
More active socially, politically while pursuing my leisure activities.
Also help some in Advisory Capacity.
My role model
Not a role model, but a collage of influences and ideas from a variety of sources.
Degree that matters
For Behavioral Consultancy, A degree in Psychology to understand People followed by study of Management is a must. A few years working in an organization is necessary to understand internal organizational dynamics. Exposure to a variety of work organizations will give maturity.
For teaching and training, learn beyond your own discipline; understand frontiers of knowledge in general.

Important lesson learned
Live life to the fullest. Don't forget family and children in pursuit of profession. Spare time for fun; Play at least one sport all through your life. Get socially involved through a Not-for- Profit Organization. Express yourself fearlessly in all spheres.
Qualities a person require to became successfull leader
    "Raah pakad kar ek chala chal, Pa jayega Madhushala".

A vision of what you wish to achieve, A firm commitment to select values; A will to contribute. Perseverance.

Ensuring growth
Being intellectually alive through awareness of world developments in the Social, Technological and Political Spheres.    I am planning to initiate advocacy for Right to Acknowledgement and Reply.   If you have lost material benefits or opportunities because the authorities did not care to reply, then you will understand what I mean by Right to Acknowledgement and Reply.
My strongest skill
Organizational Analysis. Listening. Communication. Providing support at the Individual level.
More about myself
Love to play Golf, Travel light, Listen to Music. Interest in Heritage Conservation
