When I started this website this is the introduction I wrote,
I am a dreamer….dreamer of a better world…..dreamer of a dream like future…
I blog on anything and everything that catches my attention….be it books, poetry,stories,news,products…
An adventurer at heart I seek to look for new adventures and avenues…
Comments/Bricks bats/Praises/Rotten tomatoes below 🙂
mainly because I felt that people may not be interested in the real person behind this and basically the best way to impress people was to put some poetic words ,something that looks cool 🙂
Anyways I believe it is time for some honesty .Many of you have connected with me on FB so no surprises for you here 🙂
Note: This is a personal blog, all views are personal
Real Name: Madhur Chadha (Yeaah you knew it I know)
What do I do for a living: Sadly, no I am not a full-time poet or a blogger. I worked in IT industry (Infosys) for about 6 years spending a major part in US before starting my management education at Indian School of Business @Hyderabad.
Then I worked as a Senior Consultant at Cognizant Business Consulting in their Information Media and Entertainment unit.
Post that I worked with Microsoft as a Product Manager and helped design and develop some of the coolest Apps .
Now I am working with Directi group company as a Senior Product Manager for a Product called Flock , an enterprise chat app. Check out Flock.co
A long long time ago when I was writing my LinkedIn Bio , I wanted to summarize my professional passion in one line, and I wrote “I love connecting people via digital means” . This was before I was into Product Management ,before Flock, before Microsoft, before Cognizant….It is funny how things fall into place
Apart from my day job, I used to host a radio segment Alfaaz ,dedicated to poetry on an online radio channel called MeraSangeet
What Else: I also consult/help a few NGOs and a Few Startups in Online presence. I have setup websites, trained people, helped them in marketing, created marketing collaterals such as videos ,posters,mission statements and Logos.
At ISB I led the marketing activities for iDiya: National Social venture contest and created marketing collateral for some of the biggest events.
I have also worked in creating long-term vision,organizational structure and communication channel for NGOs
Some more: I was a shy kid and could not speak in front of more than 3 people. Over the years ,due to parental support ,some awesome teachers and loads of luck, I was able to overcome this fear of mine and reach a level I thought was not possible for me.
I compered for college fests(main compere), won inter college national level debates, GDs, extempores and even became an RJ . I started passing out the techniques that helped me overcome stage fright to people who needed it.
It was incorporated as part of Lead India 2020 training program(I am a Youth leader since 2006) and I have personally trained over 300 students on it with encouraging results. I still train students in this, sometimes pro-bono sometimes paid.
So here is a sort of full disclosure ..about who I am.
