Back to Business !!!

As I begin the voyage to another destination in this 17 year long odyssey, was reminded of a note I wrote to my close friends, a little less than 2 years ago, when I relocated from Juarez, Mexico to another assignment in Chennai, India.

Back to business...

There was a banner outside Hollywood Bowl in LA it read "The best classroom inst a classroom, it's a stage" and these days it reminds me....well I am on the stage now...the moment of truth has arrived...and over the next year.. all the training & preparation of the past 2 years would be put to its ultimate test....

No amount of medication will remedy a patient in need of surgery,likewise no amount of superficial change will do , when we are in need of fundamental change to our lives. Similarly for me to be successful in this assignment no amount of incremental change would do, I need to take an exponential leap forward...chances of a hard-landing are all too real... Wish me luck ....

Like I did over the last few years, will take all of you along on this journey...stay aboard..

And dont be surprised if you notice a bias towards management,leadership and organization in the personal essays that I share ,, it reflects the 'changing sands of time'

As I play the story of my life, please keep sharing your stories too, I love to hear them.. For as the lyrics from the popular Hindi song" Ek pyar ka nagma" ...reads " zindagi aur kuch bhi nahi teri meri kahani hey" ...

Wish all of you the very best for every endevour in your life and let me know if I can make any positive difference...


Those last 2 years turned out to be absolutely fabulous because of the incredibly talented team and managers I got to lead.

Now the clock turns back one more time, and I start another assignment this time in London, UK with almost similar emotions.. Wish me luck !!!
