The importance of physical strength was ingrained in me from an early age as for many other young men and women growing up in conflicted North East India, but my first brush with the concept of a fitness regimen was at my engineering college in Bhopal. Following in the footsteps of a few seniors, I joined them for a workout at the gym. The experience left me exhilarated and a fitness enthusiast for life.
In the 12 years post college I worked for various corporations and multi-national firms, and also earned a Masters in Business Administration. I spent time in different parts of India, assumed various roles and responsibilities, and learned about business best practices from great business leaders. All through these years I kept up a steady fitness regimen, taking out time for a workout even when there were exams or work deadlines to meet.
