Story
Tagline
Domain Expert - Retail, Web 2.0 and Sustainability
Introduction

I am beginning to believe that everything is inter-twined - work into hobbies, education into happiness, etc. I am focussed on all such things that effect general masses - Retail Industry, Web 2.0 and Sustainability (at work), Observations on society (in my blog), Homam (at my home), etc. Probably just short of becoming an ascetic, if not for the too many not-so-ascetic things that I get into! ;-)
