What made you step into the domain you are in now?

And more importantly, the desire to understand what makes people tick and the fascinating journey of how situations unroll……. at a micro and macro level!
What makes you feel you have taken the right step?
My journey as a journalist has witnessed a lot of highs and what I am today ie the person behind Creative Vistas, which is focused on promoting art and culture is a logical continuation of what began soe three decades back. The fact that I am making a go of things with the same zeal is testimony to the fact that I get a terrific kick out of it. Creative Vistas has a long way to go in terms of achieving what I have envisaged. In any case, all that I have done in the last three decades has been the heart and soul of my very being.
