I research on megatrends in Higher Education specifically Business Education. I explore the purpose of education, relentlessly questioning the epistemological, pedagogical and curricular frameworks through scholarly methods- I want to know why do we teach how we teach and what we teach - how we learn and what we learn. I am always interested in the eventual destination of our educational journey and of course the paths that take us there. I also love to spend time on understanding how to nurture intelligence and evolve visionary thinking to keep ourselves relevant in the futuristic world.

True Dummy - A Fable of Existence
How to Encounter Knowledge
It is all about emerging out of Plato's cave, no matter how strong the shackles are. Often, these chains are constructs of our own mind – our biases, our fallacies, our fears, our stubbornness. Paradoxically, the stronger our misconception is, the weaker is our grip on reality. To encounter knowledge is just like being in a dense forest waiting to spot a tiger. You have to be patient. Sit for hours, peacefully. The tiger may appear. Or may not. And when it emerges, you have to be in a state of Zen to be able to look into its eyes - to embrace the moment. And you travel from forest to forest in search of that encounter. To eventually become a great storyteller.
