Prior to starting on my own, I did my articles training at Kamal Chand Jain & Co (Chartered Accountants), Guwahati, Assam.

I am professionally interested in Direct Taxes – Advisory & Litigation; Regulatory Tech & Accounting Automation.

I have been blogging on matters of professional interest since 2009. I have previously also written pro bono on current affairs & ideas for pgurus (dot) com.

I have been participating in the CPE Conferences of ICAI, etc. as Speaker / Trainer.

I have also contributed an article titled “XBRL: The Future of Financial Reporting” in a Souvenir published by the Guwahati Branch of EIRC of ICAI for their National Conference, 2011.

Some of the things I believe will have a deep impact & interest me are :

I believe that we have a responsibility to share what we learn with rest of the world, so others can benefit from our experience and insights.
