About Me

English is the only language that is being used in my both academic and professional life. As to my background, I have joined in Odisha Education Service, Class II, Department of Higher Education, Government of Odisha, India. The job calls for teaching and research in Commerce and Management apart from related academic administration and I retired as Odisha Education Service, Class I, Grade A after 33+ years of experience. I was also the Coordinator of Integrated Masters in Business Management (IMBA) course and Masters in Finance & Control (MFC) course of B.J.B.College, Utkal University, India. I was also the Professor and Dean of Dr. P.C.Mahalanabish School of Management, West Bengal, India. I have also served as Head of the Department of Business Management & Foreign Languages in Singapore Informatics and Business Management Education Ltd. at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. As on November 16, 2007, I’m the first academician from the Department of Higher Education, Government of Odisha, India to be awarded D.Litt. in Business Administration and on January 2006, I was the first academician from Asia (Based on using search websites) to write a book on management thought, thinkers and present day management wizards – ‘Management Thought’ (ISBN-81-7625-623-4). I’m still giving lectures in various institutions in India and abroad. I’ve also visited the USA, Singapore, and Thailand to understand the culture and grow my outlook. I’ve been able to leverage the power of social media professionally and personally to share my experiences and help upcoming talent learn from it. LinkedIn serves as my go-to platform with over 16, 630 followers and consistently being one of the top contributors in Harvard Business Review in LinkedIn for more than 6 years.

I’m a regular reader of e-news of Strategy + Business, MIT Sloan Management Review and Harvard Business Review apart from other journals. I try and stay updated on current trends and consistently share posts, especially in the context of the subjects I lecture. In 2013, Prof. David Joyce, an international presenter of UK referenced portions of my book ‘Management Thought’, and Prof. Enrique Suarez of US has consistently showed his willingness to work with me. I have done M. Com. and MBA, apart from my research degrees like Ph.D. (Commerce) and D.Litt. (Business Administration). I’m quite aware of the global academic pulse through my own research and also through my kids who have done their MS/MBA from Columbia University and Chicago Booth.

As of now, a lot of my referees are no more alive, but I am attaching their reference letters given to me long back. I am fairly active now in Social networking, so you can contact any of the people mentioned next who I have connected with and I found engaging during different discussions in LinkedIn even though I don’t know them personally. Some of them are Prof. Ron Krate, Founder, International Professors Project; Sripriya Sarathy, Board Chair, IPP; Bert Robinson, V.P. Business Development at Center for Project Integration (CPI), Greater New York City Area; Mohammed Sultan, Business Strategist And Board Advisor, Egypt and Julio Aliaga Giraldo, CEO, Development Strategic Consulting, Peru. In India, you can contact, Prof (Dr). Vijay Pithadia (+91-9898422655) and Prof (Dr). R.R.Sinha (+91-9602570498).

My primary objective now is to gain multicultural experience and help people through my experiences; position and salary are secondary for me. I have always been a workaholic so I have tried to keep my retired life busy with a blend of research, travel and focus on wellness.
