" I have donned several hats over the past two decades....teacher, researcher, environmentalist, climate change specialist, public health expert and many more. I have seen myself so far as a person with an empirical, scientific bend of mind whom one could loosely term as a technocrat, given my expertise in the 'technical' subject of climate change, public health, environment, etc. But the deeper I delve into these fields and try and make connections and associations with the like-minded people and institutions, the broader is the realization that, in order to stand out and make a difference through my contribution, I need to evolve and continually position and reposition myself as a Brand. Hence, the emergence of "GreenGlobe", which gives me the opportunity to showcase my vision, values, skill sets, uniqueness, associations and my entire ecosystem. I wish to bring to the table this unique Brand - persona, personality, values and associations - that will help in spiraling my future endeavors in this area - Climate Change - the umbrella that covers the way the world functions today and how the world can sustain itself effectively and efficiently in future.
Come join me in this journey and feel free to contribute in your unique way!!!! "
