His interests span the intersection of anthropology, culture, sustainability, employment, politics, public policy, entrepreneurship, innovation and research.
Desinomics is the front side view of Indian economic life embedded in its unique social reality, as it happens.
Like life, most social interaction and economic activity, in our country is below/above the academic ‘intellectual’ radar and the best studies are in the private realm of corporations, consultancies, think-tanks, inspired individuals and community knowledge realms of Jatis (Castes) and Sampradayas (Religious Sects ).
It is Indian social and economic life in its glorious uncertainty, creativity and vibrancy.
