Hello Dear Visitor,
I am the author of these books. I began my forays at putting my pen to paper when I was in college in the period 1975 to 1980. I began as a prolific writer to the "Letters to the Editor" column of various newspapers. I began putting my thoughts down on the social issues current at that time. My letters appeared in The Times of India, Economic Times, Indian Express, Financial Express, etc.
I started by writing for my college annual Magazine. I wrote an article on the Topic of Economic Development which was published in my college magazine in the year 1978.
In the same year I won the second prize in the 21st A.D. Shroff Memorial All India Essay Competition conducted by the Forum of Free Enterprise. The topic was "The Economic Regeneration of Rural India"
Initially my interest was primarily in Social welfare and economics. I had participated in inter-collegiate Elocution competitions conduted by The Forum of Free Enterprise and the Yuvak Biradari. The topics of these elocution competitions were related to issues concerning economic development.
I also wrote for local periodicals published from Mumbai. During this period I was a Karyavaha (Secretary) of the Goregaon Shakha of a socio-cultural organisation, in 1977-78.
After completing my post graduation in Commerce and Economics in 1980, I started working on the subject of Macro-economic planning. I wrote my first book on Economics, which was published in 1988 by Multitech Publishers.
While studying Economics, I also took up Indian Economic history as a second subject. I focused on the period 1000 B.C. to 1000 A.D. In the course of this study I collected a massive pile of notes on the origin of rituals, customs, beliefs, folklore etc., in the economic life of the bygone ages. These notes also covered the subject of advances made in science and technology in ancient India.
Initially, these notes were to form a chapter in a General book on history which was planned. But going along, there was so much information on this subject that I decided to present the notes on this topic in the form of a separate book entitled Indias Contribution to the Worlds Culture.
