work & more

I started work pretty early in life by Indian standards. I first started working for my father who is an entrepreneur. At first I was merely his chauffeur driving him to work en route to my college. I then started working for him part-time, once I finished lectures at college.

I guess I actually started working for myself, by becoming an entrepreneur. I started off by capitalizing on my father’s prime office location in downtown Bombay, and created a shared office facility, which I would rent out.

My next order of business was to get into the financial markets, and to achieve that end, I first became a stock broker. Well not exactly a stoc-broker, but a sub-broker for a few leading stock-brokers of the time.

Next, I started a financial services company called, Integra Funds Management Limited, and started stock brokerage for HNI individuals, financial institutions, and finally got into the financial syndication business, and fund management for HNI individuals.

The next order of business, was to start dealing with some of the leading financial institutions, with several objectives in mind, which I guess will form part of some of muy blogs.

I faced severe reversals due to bad business decisions, and finally I took up my first job, as the CFO of a well established brick and mortar company.

My next stint was in 3i Infotech (the erstwhile ICICI Infotech), and after spending five years there, was recruited by HSBC, then the worlds largest bank. That was another five years, and finally I went to work for a startup called Agile Financial Technologies based out of Dubai.

The journey is in progress and who knows where I will end up. I do have several ideas running around in my head, so let’s give it a bit of time.


  1. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this blog. In addition, a fairy tale regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about foreclosed is that the financial institution will not take my repayments. There is a certain quantity of time that this bank is going to take payments every now and then. If you are too deep inside the hole, they may commonly require that you pay the particular payment in full. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of repayments at all. Should you and the standard bank can seem to work a thing out, the foreclosure method may cease. However, when you continue to miss payments in the new approach, the foreclosed process can just pick up from where it left off.

  2. Very nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention that I’ve truly loved browsing your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing in your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  3. I have figured out some important things through your website post. One other thing I would like to mention is that there are plenty of games in the marketplace designed mainly for preschool age youngsters. They contain pattern acknowledgement, colors, creatures, and models. These often focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This keeps little children occupied without experiencing like they are studying. Thanks

I'd be delighted to know what you think
