It was in 1993 I finally achieved my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. I teamed up with my brother, who graduated as an Engineer from Guindy College of Engineering, and dabbled in the corporate world for about two years and later did some small time construction contracts. We together had dreamt of starting some manufacturing enterprise. I instantly quit my job at Chemplast and joined in identifying a project. There is a saying, that in an entrepreneurial journey the first half of the journey is complete when one identifies a project of his/ her dream! We zeroed in on manufacture of cement near our native place. 1993 started commercial production, 1995, entered into Dairy sector, in 1996 started a software company that laid the foundation for ultimately shifting to Hyderabad to commence the Healthcare service company.
As soon as I graduated as a management graduate in 1988 I joined with a swiss multinational, Ciba Giegy and worked in Bombay and Delhi regions, before shifting to Chennai to join Chemplast, a SANMAR group company, in 1991.
After my undergrad in engineering I joined with Hindustan Motors at Calcutta, for a short stint of one year in their vendor development function, Vauxhall motors [Contessa cars].
My hobbies include trekking, photography, reading and travel. Have many friends and network with fun.
