INDERJITH DAVALUR

HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST. SPEAKER. WRITER. UTOPIAN DREAMER.

ABOUT

 I do not have a story that would qualify as a heart-warming or uplifting moment in my career. A simple, plain-spoken individual with a typical childhood and a schooling with a blandly average reputation I do not have major accomplishments to write of.

What I realize that I possessed and enjoyed were a brilliantly supportive family I was born into, friends that I made along the way and an equally wonderful family that I created. These associations were the main nourishment that helped me work through several ranks that pushed me to constantly aim higher.

While I do not have any sterling professional accolades, I have always been fortunate to have worked for some of the best bosses who were always an inspiration that pushed me to be the same to those who reported to me. I have cultivated a healthy appetite for learning and reading. This one habit has been a constant companion to me giving me the luxury of never being alone.

As I enter post-retirement, I have been fortunate again, to be associated with some brilliant minds who have opened their hearts and doors to me. I have been granted the rare gift of pursuing a passion at a stage in life when most would be content to look forward to quiet days sustained by a steady fixed income.

Not me, I guess.
