Born In Dubai to a business family in 1976.
I went to an all Arabic grade, middle and high school where I was the only Indian kid, and was forced to learn and speak Arabic to stop getting bullied :)
In 1993 I went to Cleveland Ohio in USA and attended Case Western Reserve University. After completing my degree and graduating in 1997 I then moved back to Dubai to join the family business. There, I continued to build relations and develop a new business for the company, ETA STAR ASCON.
When I came back to Dubai in 1997, I was involved in various business verticals which included; Real Estate; Agriculture; Event Management; Supply chain management; food and beverage; retail, steel manifacturing and small scaled power generations. I focused most of my attention on developing and bulding cement factories under “Star Cement”, in the UAE (Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman and Abu Dhabi), Bangladesh, Sudan, Bahrain and Yemen between the years of 1999-2008. During this time, I also spent time on a coal mine in mozambique and a palm oil plantation in Sarawak, Malaysia. The business also gave me the chance to travel far and wide.
In 2008 I was then approached by the Chairman of Etisalat to become a board member of Etisalat India where I served on board until 2012.
In 2010 we had an offer to sell the cement facories, for a enterprise value of 380 million US Dollars, which the company was happy to sell it at. With that decision, I helped with the process of selling Star Cement.
In 2010 I stumbled upon Ho’o pono pono. The process of looking within oneself for solutions rather than looking externally. Since discovering this practice I try to practice it moment to moment to discover “Thyself”.
The process also opened up new worlds of science, ancient history, spirituality across religions, ayahuasca, Hinduism, sumerian civilisation, holotropric breathwork, Buddhism, and even Atheism, philosophy, fractal geometry and sacred geometry. I was fascinated by all. And inspired by Nassim, Graham Hancock and Zacharia, I visited Jerusalem explored the temple mount and surroundings.
I have been observing from a young age the gap between the ritual and spiritual and scientific world. But as a seeker, I am able to see the gap bridging. And I probably will continue seeing till the day I die.
