About the Author
CorporateMortal is a 35 years old male working in the quintessential software industry. He grew up in a typical Indian middle class setting and his values were defined by many idiosyncrasies viz. monthly struggle to pay rent/EMI’s, living in a 1 bed room flat, flaunting the Nokia phone with colour screen, going for that first foreign trip and posting pictures on Facebook showing off the same. Most of Mortal’s life was focused on achieving an education that is comparable to the brightest kid in his family and getting a “MNC” job that his family and friends can feel good about.
While Mr. Mortal succeeds in this to a reasonable extent, he discovers mid life that he is just another mortal amongst billions. But he also appreciates the fact, that life gives enough opportunities to introspect, rediscover and explore new activities like Blogging. When not blogging Mr. Mortal is busy balancing between work, life and people around.
Like most educated elite (Mr. Mortal considers himself one), he experiences feelings of frustration, delight and amusement about things happening around. In social settings he talks passionately about politics and how politicians are responsible for every problem country is facing. He also doubles up as an adviser to confused souls who are just out of college and are seeking corporate enlightenment . He does get involved in self gratification by uploading edited profile pictures and intelligent status updates on Facebook, but he does try to appear humble as his underlying values are still of an Indian middle class. His other passions include music, travel, reading and teaching.
Stay tuned and follow the blog to see the world through Mr. Mortals lenses.
