I am an Engineer turned Journalist turned Entrepreneur who is also an online media professional.

I was born in Kerala, brought up in Bhilai, a steel city which is now in Chattisgarh but was in Madhya Pradesh those days. I was in Bhilai till Class 12th and then in Nagpur and Bangalore for my higher studies. I was in Bangalore for about 11 years before moving to Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) in 2007. I have also been in Hyderabad for a short while.

I have worked with leading TV News channels and other organisations as a media professional before launching my own start-up in 2007. Launched ‘Kerala IT News‘, a comprehensive IT news portal with a focus on Kerala in 2009 and later, ‘Kerala Biz News‘ in 2011. I am also guest faculty at the Institute of Journalism run by Press Club, Thiruvananthapuram since 2007.

This space is for my thoughts, views and comments; and that’s what ‘Mere Vichar Vimarsh‘ is all about. To follow me on a daily basis, check me out on Facebook and Twitter where I am more vocal and at times, provocative too. I speak my mind on all contemporary topics and issues that affect me.
