    I am an honest, sincere, committed and concerned person in my personal and professional life, value humility and humane approach, and enjoy the company of positive persons and free thinkers. I am of the view that every thing in this world is a great source of knowledge and the nature and extent of our own knowledge depends on our own individual and collective focus and learning capacity to acquire the same. Education enables us to acquire knowledge and skills but our attitude and value system determine the nature and extent of their applications. It is also true that even an unlettered person can have a lot of wisdom while even a great scholar may be an idiot. To forgive and forget are some of the greatest virtues of life. These are only my personal perceptions about the life and world I know, and they have been the broad guidelines of my life I have lived so far. However, they might be peculiar to me as I have lived quite a humble life, and therefore, they can not be generalized for the people at large. As for my professional side is concerned, my works, experience and expertise have been in the academic arena and I am quite at ease in conceptualizing, designing, organizing, coordinating, executing, and monitoring research studies and capacity building programs ( including training programs, workshops and seminars) on my own as well as with the help of cspecifi teams of professionals constituted for the purpose. I enjoy designing course modules and teaching as well in the areas of my specialization. I have authored books, reports, book chapters, papers and articles on a variety of themes. I am a Post Graduate in social science from JNU, New Delhi with an experience of over 30 years in research, training, and teaching in the areas of micro and small enterprises, development banking, entrepreneurship development, industrial development, and small business management, investment friendly climate and WTO etc I have done academic administration at the institutional level for about a decade. Also, I have handled the over all administration ( comprising general, financial, and personnel) of the institute for four years,
