My Blogs

My blog is a place to showcase the real life examples of leadership that we encounter each day. While I am an entrepreneur at heart, I have spent the better part of my adult life doing a job. The secret to my happiness has been a convergence of the two paths along the way. Having spent the first seven years of my career at HCL , I ventured into setting up HCL Comnet to meet an unfulfilled need for IT infrastructure and services.

This blog is also a place for us to narrate our experiences and views to collectively create a ‘leadership commons’ that will carve new paths and result in the leadership theories and business strategies of tomorrow.
