ingame name), is an esports Evangelist, Hustler and a Telecom Veteran with 18+ yrs of
corporate experience with companies like Huawei, Tata Communications, Airtel, Reliance.
He is a known name when it comes to Indian Esports. Over the years been part of esports, and
across different formats and categories of games, he found that the vertical in India is
unstructured & Unexplored, which needed to be developed along professional lines – much in
the same way that other forms of sports are being developed in the country (be it Cricket,
Football or now Kabadi).
His aspiration is to ensure that the category of esports is created and managed in much the same
way as it is in countries like South Korea, China United States & European Union.
