Pramod has put on a number of hats in his 63 years. An engineer, army officer, manager, CEO, teacher and now he wishes to be a full-time writer! His objective in his words: “having discovered, to improve the writer within and to honestly contribute back to the society that has given me so much.” He has been a rebel, having taken “out of the box” syndrome to obsession. Amongst the firsts in the family to get an engineering degree (1972), to join army, in army to get selected for post-graduation at IIT, amongst very few to opt for Antarctica expedition for 16 months and to opt for premature retirement despite a flourishing army career, and completing his Ph. D. in Advertising Management are just a few of his “breaking-the-mould” endeavours. He has already tested the literary waters through his book on the subject he loves– personality development – “Putting Your Best Foot Forward”, published by Visa publications in 2009. His current work, The Destiny, is based on a true story while he was in the army.
