I am born and bought up in Mumbai. After passing Diploma in Textile Engineering from VJTI, I joined the Quality Assurance team at Century Textiles & Industries. I learnt about the significance and contribution of quality assurance in customer service. Besides working in quality assurance, I was actively involved in Total Quality Management, Total Productive Maintenance, Value Analysis, Quality Control, and Quality Circles. Eventually I got promoted and was given the additional responsibility of the Production section. While working there I participated in many other assignments like Safety, TPM & ISO 9000 audits. I was instrumental in forming Quality Circle to resolved recurring problems in production and quality. I was fortunate to represent Century Textiles at National Convention conducted by Quality Circle Forum of India (QCFI) at New Delhi. Participation in Quality Circle helped me to develop leadership and interpersonal skills.
I then moved on to the healthcare Industry i.e. Hinduja Hospital & Medical Research Centre as the Head of Linen & Laundry services. It was a totally different experience for me and to cope with this change, I started educating myself with healthcare studies from Symbiosis. I soon realized that continuous learning and improvement is a success mantra. While working I completed my dual degree in Textile and Industrial Engineering and I received an institutional award for completing AMIE (Textile Engineering) from the Institution of Engineers (India). I took an initiative to form Quality Circle in healthcare industry which helped to resolved routine recurring problems. In the service industry we had a “Patient Centric” approach while serving patients and made innovations in patient’s uniforms. My contribution to work was useful in selecting the right material, testing and processing of raw material, selection of machines, new product and process development. I was part of NABH (National Accreditation Board of Healthcare) & HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) Audits. I learnt audit techniques such as auditing, audit documentation, audit process, gap analysis. While working, I represented the hospital for starting and promoting laundry services in remote areas of Maharashtra at Doctors Meet held in St. George’s Hospital.
I joined Vidyalankar Institute of Technology in 2013 to explore my passion in teaching and providing the best facilities to students and staff on the campus. We started working on a “Student Centric” approach and in the process, we standardized and streamlined various facilities and services. With a rich experience of more than 20 years in various disciplines, I started teaching Management students to give them the benefit of my knowledge and experience. I personally believe that Engineering and Management is an excellent combination for a successful career. I feel initially every engineer should work in a shop floor/plant to get hands on experience which will help to understand and apply engineering concepts.
It is rightly said, “Quality is never the result of an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort”. I have been taught to do things right when no one is watching; it gave me a sense of responsibility and accountability. To nurture my creativity, I am interested in reading, Indian classical music and literature.
