I am a qualified engineer. I worked in Engineering Research Centre of TATA Motors Ltd for some 33 years and retired as Head of Learning Centre consisting of Teardown & Benchmarking Centre, Knowledge Centre and Innovation Centre. Some of my inventions and innovations have been either awarded or pending for patents. After retirement I have become a consultant.
I am a writer. Two novels in Marathi have been published. My English novel ‘Manipulations’ was published in US and Canada in 2002. Smashwords have published my sci-fi novel ‘Brahma’s Breath’ recently. Another sci-fi novel on a manned mission to Mars titled ‘Our Distant Cousins’ will be published shortly. Usually my writing has a lot of action and therefore suitable for films. My forthcoming books are: a play on the great Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, a novel based on my father’s life and an inspirational non-fiction book.
My Marathi sci-fi and mystery stories anthology is getting published shortly. I have written a number of essays, articles and poems in Marathi (my mother tongue) and English. An audio CD album of my Marathi romantic songs is also available.
I am a speaker and have given talks in national and international forums as well as radio. I have travelled widely across the world. I stay in Pune, India and can be reached by telephone on my cell: 91-9225636353 or residence telephone: 91-(0)20-24453388 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
