I am Mukesh Ghatiya. I am a mad nomad with ODD (Observer, Dreamer, Doer) personality.
After 14+ years experienced professional having dabbled with Product Management, Entrepreneurship and Software Engineering now I am on a break.
In this break, as of now I am looking at solving some social/civic issues (I’ve picked up issues of plastic/garbage and traffic for now), to study Behavioural Economics, working on a play Mujhe Amrita Chahiye, playing some Bridge and working on couple of promising products.
I just concluded my research on waste management and have summed up my findings in this post. Have a look and do share your thoughts.
I’m available for short term assignments. I’ve mentioned the kind of assignments I am up for on my Linkedin Profile which would also give you a glimpse on what all I have been up to professionally in past.
I keep writing some of my thoughts or updates on my projects that I am undertaking. Do check out my latest writings on the blog.
About my name: Some people wonder about my surname (ones who know Hindi). So, its pronounced as “Gh-aa-ti-ya”, though it doesn’t quite matter how you choose to do it yourself. I have nothing to do with “ghaats”. My ancestors somehow didn’t possibly envisage the issue this surname could cause, and when I started to write my name in English and I didn’t figure I could avoid mispronunciation issue by just adding an “a” 🙂 All is well though. My name helps me being in top in SEO 🙂 Anyway, now that you know my name is funny, imagine about whole package!
