Select Project to Invite
I am a postgraduate in English who passed out in 1979 from the reputed University Institute of English, Trivandrum, Kerala which is the one and only affiliate in Asia of the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (CIEFL), Hyderabad. I started my career as a lecturer/ teacher in English for undergraduate and graduate level courses and was in it for two years from 1979 to 1981. During 1981 I joined the 'Indian Express' daily in the editorial wing at Bangalore. I left 'Indian Express' in December 1981 to join 'The Hindu' and was with them till 1996 on different managerial assignments. Thereafter, I was on sales and general management assignments with different organizations till 2003 when I rejoined 'Indian Express' as their Unit General Manager at Trivandrum. While in Indian Express, I was called by the ICFAI, who were running a chain of well conducted Business Schools called ICFAI National College across India, to join them as their Principal and Campus Head at Kannur, Kerala in May 2005. I was with them till 2011 when I got retired. After two months of my retirement, I was invited by a large construction company in Kochi to head their operations as General Manager. I was with them 31st December 2013 and then took my days off as I felt that I wanted some free time also. I am now free at home and would like to put my time and experience to fruitful and productive use by working from my home.
