(The Challenge of Change, Nova Scotia Economic Strategy, Voluntary Planning, March 1991)
My experience/interests fall into three broad categories:
My ancestral background/tradition from Anakapalle, India is `trade and commerce'!
When I was an engineering student in Andhra Pradesh years ago, I was one of the earliest members of a lobby establishment in India known as the Forum of Free Enterprise!
In a nutshell, I have worked actively in the construction and land development industry in Canada for approximately two decades! Following that, I carried out scientific research in freshwater for decade and a half. Since mid-to-late 2006, I have been involved in human relations, in addition to my volunteer activities.
Applied Limnology/Professional Lake Management
A significant interest and specialty of mine are in Applied Limnology, i.e., the practical applications of the science of freshwaters and Lake Management!
I spearhead the Soil & Water Conservation Society of Metro Halifax (SWCSMH), a volunteer society, nevertheless a scientific research group. We have members/associates not only from the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), Nova Scotia, Canada, but also a few leading scientists from Ontario and select states USA! Our objectives; snapshot summary of our accomplishments; and select compliments and acknowledgements received!
I have extensive interests, mostly dealing with human relations, public communication, and working in partnership with all entities in the scientific/technical domain within the time constraint!
I just love liaison with people of all background!
