My Story

Manu-1Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for visiting my page to know more about me.

I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and reflect through your comments and thoughts. As you can see from variety on my blog, I have a whole range of interests and passions that I follow with full focus. I believe that multi-focus is not a bad thing and that it keep one’s mental juices churning and flowing.

My Journey

As a four years old I wanted to be a rail engine driver as the ‘power’ of a single person driving such a long train fascinated me. In later years I chose to study Economics. I later moved to Australia and studied Planning & Development with laurels from The University of Queensland. I worked as a Planner for a city council in Queensland till India happened again. I joined a national non-profit in India (part of International parent organization, INBAR) working in environment & economic development, CIBART, as its youngest CEO. I learnt a lot during this stint that shaped my future career trajectory. I am glad that I found some awesome mentors along my way. I began my entrepreneurial journey from July 2009 and founded 3 start-ups and angel invested in half a dozen other ventures till mid 2012. At present, I work with a non-profit, HPPI, as their Head of Social Impact & Sustainability, and am current based at New Delhi, India.

Personal Info 

I pursue travel, world cinema, reading, model building, and music in my free time. I passionately follows discussions on Start-ups, social technologies and impact investing, and is always ready to discuss innovative ideas over a cup of cappuccino.
