All credit for my 45 year long very satisfying and successful professional life should go to my alma mater AEC and my respected professors who were the chief architects of the solid foundation on which I stood. The first career opportunity was for the post of lecturer in college. But I preferred to serve in the industry and joined an upcoming greenfield project Ashok Paper Mill in Jogighopa. The professional journey took me through many interesting and challenging opportunities working for 15 years in L&T in India followed by 24 years in India & Singapore in a Swedish MNC Elof Hansson. Finally I retired in 2015 as Managing Director and CEO of EH-Singapore looking after China & South East Asia.
