About the authors

Life is good. But how we look at life, is shaped by our varied experiences and backgrounds. Here, we’ve tried to put forward different outlook to things, life and even places, from the perspectives of two people who have lead almost parallel roads in life, well distanced from each other. And while we see life through two different lenses, looks like we are still looking in a similar direction. At BetterOfTwoWorlds, we try to bring together our Two Worlds into words and let you ponder which one you belong to.

You might feel that you belong to one of the schools of thought, but there may be a chance that you relate to the other one too!

We hope you have a great time surfing through our blog.

Hi everyone, I am so excited to finally get this blog alive and kicking. I have always enjoyed writing whenever time permits, which thanks to 72-hour work weeks and MBA shenanigans was a rare affair before. Guess there are some positive outcomes of Corona that aren’t too bad for your health! Other than cribbing about not writing enough, I love spending my free time playing board games (specially Catan, Risk), working out and just stepping out for a run/walk. Occasionally, I slip in a couple of high altitude mountain treks in a year.

I studied Chemical Engineering for my undergrad at IIT, Bombay (Class of 2015) geeking out on robots and self driving cars as a part of the Tech club. My first stint was with Deutsche Bank as a trading quant analyst. Later, I moved to IDG Ventures India (now Chiratae Ventures), an early-stage Venture Capital fund, looking at and working with Tech startups across sectors. I am currently an MBA student at Harvard Business School, Boston (Class of 2021). And, I intend to make a big difference in the Indian startup ecosystem eventually.

Finally a blog! Taking this big leap was a little difficult, considering I am an Orthopedician and I rarely get time away from my Operating Room and the hospital, and my other favorite routine being glancing through X-rays or reading a textbook. The rest of the time I get is spent on listening to a lot of music, playing the guitar and probably squeezing in a vacation here and there.

I got my MBBS degree from Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi(MAMC, 2010) in 2015, and went on to study Orthopedics in the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research(PGIMER), Chandigarh till 2018. Since 2018, I have been a practicing Orthopedic-Surgeon, at present working in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS), New Delhi.

The idea of a blog seemed daunting, but the extended discussion about life, made me realize that our experiences in the hospital and with patients, shape the way we think so differently, it is something no one else can understand. And precisely that is what I wanted to put out through this blog.
