shiningpath

Firstpost is thrilled to introduce Shining Path, an audience member who will begin blogging for us on a regular basis. In his own words: "Shiningpath had enough! 6451 days of debilitating non-work in corporate corridors, cubicles and windowless cabins. Chained to protocols, bound by hierarchies and surrounded by people with core competencies. So he hit the self-eject button, and found himself a nice hammock – from where he now watches the world , reads, attempts to write , gives a comment here, a commentary there...unsolicited mainly….and moonlights as a freelance business consultant in Bangalore.
