My first role model:

My parents, especially my mother. I lost my father when I was young

My first job

It was at BHEL - Industrial Systems Group, Bangalore

My first boss: K.R. Paramesvar at BHEL

My first promotion

In 1982, when I was promoted from Industrial Engineer to Senior Industrial Engineer

My first disappointment: When I started feeling that my job became a routine. I even wanted to quit BHEL

My first success

It was when the first coil rolled out of the hot strip mill at Rourkela Steel Plant at midnight on August 10, 1980. I was responsible for the project management
