with the Letter ‘S’:
Most of my book titles start with the letter ‘S’.
Self-taught: I am mostly self-taught. I
joined Indian Air Force (IAF) when I was 19 years old. I completed my
graduation after joining IAF.I acquired
several qualifications while serving in IAF including DME, BSc, MA, PGDBM,
PGDCLL and MBA. I earned my PhD in Soft Skills in 2011. I follow the principle
of ‘earning and learning.’
Whenever I have any questions, I visit search engines to learn things. Hence,
Google is my guru.
I always carry a notebook with me to capture the ideas that pop up in my mind.
I write down my observations about others. I believe in the slogan ‘a short
pencil is always better than a long memory.’
Punctual: I am punctual. I cultivated
this habit after I joined IAF.
value time more than money. I always carry a book or reading material with me
to read while traveling.
on the Floor:
I sleep on floor every day. I rose from humble origins, and I have the habit of
sleeping on floor. I lead a simple life. I still belong to a lower middle-class
family living in a single bed-room rented apartment.
Frugal: I am frugal, and live with
simplicity and humility.
Traveler: I enjoy traveling. I
traveled entire India when I served in Indian Air Force in various aircrafts

places like a common man.

is Thicker than Blood.
I prefer friends to relatives. I was cheated by my own relatives but rescued by
my friends. Hence, I value friendship more than anything else in the world.
in Referent Power, not Positional Power: I make friendship with people
irrespective of their ranks and positions. I don’t make friends based on
popularity or positions because popularity is a passing cloud and positions are
temporary. Precisely, I respect people, not their positions.
After completion of each training program, I sit quiet for some time to take
feedback to deliver it better next time. I emphasize excellence.

encountered resistance from many people to reach the present position. Nobody helped
me reach to my current position. Hence, I am a self-made man. Only God can
claim that He helped me.
only Regret in my Life:
I didn’t have any Guru to guide me. I struggled a lot in my life due to lack of
guidance. Hence, I take keen interest in guiding, grooming, coaching and
mentoring others so that they should not struggle like me due to lack of a
mentor, or a coach.
