A Blessing in Disguise?

Global Employment EcosystemThough every aspect of our life has been affected, the Employment Ecosystem is going through a complete overhaul. Businesses are now relying more on Contract Workers & Freelancers. Remote Working to become mainstream.

My COVOD-19 Initiatives
My Professional Summary
I have almost three decades of experience in the IT industry. I’m 57 and started my professional career as a System Marketing Engineer in the late 80’s after completing my Engineering Degree course. Worked for different IT companies in different business development roles until I started my own entrepreneurial journey in the late 90’s. Currently, I work with a few global IT Startups as advisor and mentor
Personal Ideology & Interests
I’m an Atheist, a Progressive Left Socialist, a Humanist and a Pacifist. Besides technology and entrepreneurship; I have deep interest in psychology, history, current international affairs, culture and classic English literature. I strongly advocate for equal opportunities to everybody in all walks of life. Globally. I firmly believe that a combination of technology, entrepreneurship and Atheism (non-theism) can help reduce the global economic disparity, which in my opinion, is one of the real root causes of the current global unrest.
My Struggle with Bipolar Disorder
I struggled with a genetic form of bipolar disorder/depression that got triggered after my father’s untimely death in Nov 1991. I was brought up by him and was extremely close to him. After more than 2 decades of sufferings, I finally succeeded in taming my prolonged and cruel bipolar disorder with the help of a new regimen of medication in Sep, 2016. Currently, I’m on 10 mg Lexapro & 150 mg Wellbutrin. I take a few Ayurvedic herbs, too. After taming this cruel monster, I created a new life road-map for myself and steered both my personal & professional life into a new and more fulfilling direction.
