My Struggle with Bipolar Depression
I struggled with a genetic form of bipolar 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.
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 COVID-19 Initiatives
Covid-19 has completely changed The Employment Ecosystem... Globally! Businesses are now relying more on Contract Workers & Freelancers. Remote Working to become mainstream.
Fast pace of advancement in technologies and onset of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) have already been rapidly changing the employment ecosystem for the last 5 years. Self Employment & Location Independence have been becoming mainstream. 36% of US Workforce in 2017 were Self-employed.
Job seekers need to adapt to the new employment ecosystem. To help them transition into the new era and to convert the new challenges into opportunities, I am launching a series of startups to promote entrepreneurship globally.
