Iwent to Ainsworth Street Primary School and joined ESS in 1968. I left ESS in 1970 and enrolled at Kenya Polytechnic to pursue Engineering.I playedHockey and Cricket at ESS and took part in athletics. Additionally, I was quite active in the photography club where we learned developing & printing after school.
In 1971, I established the Leo Club (Nairobi), a junior Lions Club, with the help of a handful of ex-ESS students. We raised funds for charity through events such as Drive-In movies and sponsored walks. We ran a stall at the Nairobi Agricultural Show & manned the Show's popular children Railway Train. Another prestigious charity event I organised was Asha Parekh's classical dances (my nearest rendezvous with a Bollywood celebrity!).
I left for the UK in 1974to follow an Electrical Engineering course at Willesden Technical College. I qualified with BSc (Computing) and MBA from University of Westminster.
I travelled widely - in the Caribbean, Seychelles, Botswana and Middle-East – while working for Cable & Wireless. I was in-charge of computer-networking our London head office with our overseas branches. At present, I work for Cisco in pre-sales as regional Bid Manager looking after some 40 countries (Middle-East, Africa & Russia).
I am married to Rosy. We have two boys. Ronik has just graduated in Computing & Management from Surrey University and Mohit is at Oxford University (Balliol) pursuing Economic & Management readership. We are all well settled in Swindon.
