A Masters Degree in Economics from JNU and then an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania have given me an unusual education - a full spectrum from the left to the right!

Till 2014, I ran my own manufacturing and research companies, both of which have since been successfully divested to multinationals.

I'm now taking that old Chinese proverb seriously: 'Enjoy life: it's later than you think.' So what I really do is travel to strange and offbeat places, meet as many people as I can from all walks of life; in short explore every nook and corner that I possibly can of this enormous canvas called life.

Aroon’s Recent Updates

“In the yesterdays and tomorrows does sorrow reside. In the now and here do the wise abide.”
Aroon Raman, The Treasure of Kafur

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
Ernest Hemingway
