Who am I?
I am a Digital Professional with a Sales & BD background with a flair for 'Customer Experience Design’.

I have academic qualifications in Accounting (of all things) and a Business Degree (from a University that is more known for Sports Science). You can read more about my professional profile on LinkedIn.

I tipped my toes in the waters of Vedanta and Vipassana but a deeper reading of the nature of the Universe (or is it a Multiverse?), and how something ‘could’ come out of nothing, turned me into a Skeptic. In addition, I think the application of morality and ethics in this life is more important and worthy pursuit than worrying about the after-life. You may therefore find some musings on these topics too.
In one of my walks, an epiphany hit me. Of all praise I got in life, the praise that was most easy to carry is the one when people have said they were inspired by my one action or the other. On deeper observation, it did seem like a fulfilling goal to have. So I made that my life’s purpose. I, therefore,
