Let’s see.

I can do this the traditional way and make it boring or try and do something different at the risk of making a complete fool of my self. Having said that, I must also admit that I hate the word “boring”, so… here goes.

One of my personality traits that I attribute to my being Saggitarian by birth is my vetoing the “go-with-the-flow” mentality. The following quote from George Bernard Shaw is one of my favourites:

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
—  George Bernard Shaw

As you might have already guessed, I like to do things my way. Please don’t translate to, “He’s an egomaniac”. I absolutely AM NOT. You can’t be a good leader if you don’t know how to be a good follower. However, the more I learn about myself, the more convinced I am, that I am better suited at being a leader than a follower. I know, I know, everyone thinks the same way but I have quite a few real life example to cite for my claim and I intend to build on what I have accomplished so far.

Talking of accomplishments, I haven’t stepped on the moon nor have I flown solo across the pacific. I did however, top the entrance exam for the Masters of Computer Applications course that I eventually graduated from. I have a laundry list of things that I enlist as accomplishments. If you have the time, please be my guest to go take a look.

I know I am not cut out to be the next Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Vinod Khosla. I do love computers though and I at good at them.

I don’t define success in terms of career or wealth and although I am might sound cliche, I do measure success in terms of health and family.

Considering that this is just an introduction, I feel I have said enough. If for some strange reason, you are still interested in knowing me further, please visit my blog or feel free browse through the rest of the web-pages on this site.
