An officer in Indian Navy, who after retirement, has chosen to convert to books, the jewels of his experience. For he was lucky to have had, in the form of colleagues, subordinates and superiors, a real, wide cross section of India, and quite a bit of the rest of the world. Hence it so happened, as during those years he being quite at home with people from entirely different backgrounds and consequently offered a kaleidoscopic view of society, he couldn't but reflect on human transactions in many colors, each of them leading to a horde of imponderables, human or non human, living and non living. Published four books, 1) The Unsure Male, a new look at the differences between male and female and what it does to evolution. 2) Caste: The Unexplored Territories, a new, bold, and different study of a perennial and the most potent social issue in India. 3) Glimpses of Autobiography, few thoughts, reflections and personalities that could have found a place in his autobiography, if he wrote one, and 4) Hubs that Provoke, a collection of the irrational, in what we see as some of the basic foundations of our life as a society.
