An engineer by training, the play of words has always fascinated me from a very young age; spoken rather than the written. The cadence in Martin Luther King Jr. speech 'I Have a Dream' had me riveted then and now. I was the debating team captain and editor of the college magazine. As a bachelor, I was a rolling stone shifting to journalism and part-time politics. I got my feet grounded when I completed a Master of International Management course at Baylor University, Texas. The degree took me to teaching and they were the most wonderful years of my career. I was rated as 'Best Faculty' by my students for seven consecutive years. During the period, I can claim to have authored the first of its kind book 'WTO: Text and Cases'. I was invited as visiting faculty by premier business schools in India including IITM, which sent me to teach for a semester at the University of Applied Sciences, Deggendorf, Germany.
