Becoming a CTO.

Chief Technology Officer. That's what i had wanted to become for a long time.
Finally, have decided to pursue Technology in a form which will be of direct help to the Country.

Our objective is to adopt Clusters of Villages across the country, possibly BPL families in places without electricity and water, And research on existing models available across the world to bring about improvements in

1. Agriculture yields
2. Microfinance
3. Setting up small scale industry hubs
4. Education
5. Health

This is actually so simple. There are tonnes of literature on good work being done by Grameen like companies, and with detailed instructions as how they do it.

Having being in IT for 12 years, have seen closely how productivity and yields improve when people adapt best practices of ITIL/PMP/ISO etc.

Same way we can help these people to improve the farm yields and efficiency of small businesses.

Currently am undergoing a formal training from EDI-DSE (http://www.ediindia.org/doc/DSE.pdf), and will spend a year working on the theory part of various models. Then we will start experimenting and tuning the framework. This will be a long road with lots of experiments and learning's. But we are confident we will succeed as we have done in all the previous projects & Endeavours.

Enjoy Life...

  1. Vj sir, I always take time to read your blog, they are so inspiring. You have always been a role model for me...even today I tell your story to my colleages. I have always thought about doing something for people in need but was caught up into wishes cycle so much and not having balls to get out of this cycle continued for ever. I always thought about getting electricity, clean drinking water and some sort of healthcare facility for rural part of India. You have inspired my thought process again :) Looking for solar station options, will let you know how that goes...
