My favourite quote in the world is by Pierre Tielhard de Chardin and it goes like this –
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
I was born in 1972 in New Delhi, India. I lived in the US as a child where I became very passionate about US Presidents. That’s right. My childhood idol was President John F. Kennedy and I had memorised his inaugural address when I was six years old.
My parents and I returned to India in 1983 and my brother was born the next year. I did my schooling from Modern School Barakhamba Road and my college from St. Stephen’s (History Hons). Much later in life, I also studied hard and earned an LL.b degree.
My career life has been varied. I have been a full time journalist with the Delhi Mid Day, I ran a software company for some time and am a web designer and developer. This site, in fact has been made by me from start to finish (with a lot of help from WordPress and some great tutorials on YouTube).
Now, I am the Managing Director of the Chintels Group. We develop real estate – residential and commercial in Delhi and Gurgaon. We are also members of a great organisation called CREDAI and I am currently the Treasurer of CREDAI NCR. I am also the Convenor of the Media and Public Relations Committee of Credai National.
Through my family, I am also the Trustee of the Nora Solomon Foundation, a non-profit NGO which is the CSR initiative of the Solomon Family and the Chintels Group.
Right from childhood, I have had a great relationship with our Divine Creator. Meditation and prayer is something that I not only do myself, but highly recommend to everyone I meet. I have been fortunate to have some great spiritual experiences, some of which I have written about and some I intend to write about in the future. Speaking of writing, I am a regular contributor to the Speaking Tree column of the Times of India and other newspapers as well. I have written and published two books – Shadows of Truth and The Cosmic Light Within (you can visit the Books page of this site for more details). Plus, I’m working on other books as well – fiction and non-fiction. I love to write spiritual, science fiction and paranormal related stuff.
The spiritual side of my self is something that I want to keep learning more about and using it to try my best to give back to the world and all of its people, buy helping them to look inwards and find their own spiritual divinity within them. This is what I would call my personal mission.
I’m blessed to have a wonderful family – great parents, wife, three lovely children, brother, cousins, aunts, uncles, in-laws and of course, the family of our own choosing – better known as friends.
I have always believed that the people of the world have a great future. But we all have to use our gifts to make the world a better place. As citizens, we have a great duty to our nation and our world. We need to actively involve ourselves in this endeavour through whichever way we can. We must remember that the freedom we have today, the democracy we have today in India came at a price and we must always do whatever we can to preserve, protect and defend our values and ethics – both as a nation through our Constitution and as individuals through our ancient Indian traditions of values and treating and loving our neighbour as ourselves as the Lord Jesus Christ teaches us to do.
