About the author of KeralaKerala.Com
To summarise, I am a retired 75-year-old grandfather from the State of Kerala in India. My qualifications include a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (Graduated in 1968) from one of the Government of India's prestigious NIT (National Institute of Technology, previously called REC or Regional Engineering College), an MBA equivalent (1970) in International Trade from IIFT (The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, New Delhi), the premier Government of India Institute specialising in International Trade Management. I was a member of the British Institute of Management - MBIM in the 1980s.
After a short stint with our family business, which unfortunately closed down due to labour and eventual financial problems, went abroad to Dubai in 1979, to seek my fortune there. Worked in fire protection and water purification industry in Dubai for almost 40 years (till 2018). When I joined this Company in 1979, it was just a small trading company with about 10 staff members, trading in Fire extinguishers and water treatment chemicals. I was the first Engineer employed by this company. When I retired from this Company after 39 years of service, there were over 1500 employees and we were one of the largest and best known Companies in the Middle East manufacturing a whole range of Fire Fighting and water treatment products. I am proud to say that I played a major part in building up this Company from a small trading Company to one of the largest group of Companies specialising in trading, manufacture, providing technical consultation and installing fire protection systems and water treatment, recycling and purification plants throughout the Middle East.
We built some of the largest Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Desalination plants in the Middle East. Also, we undertook projects to build large Sewage Treatment Plants making use of conventional as well as the latest technologies in this field, like Membrane BioReactors or MBR, Vacuum Sewage Collection Systems (the world's largest), etc.
The Company is also one of the largest in the Middle East manufacturing a whole range of Fire fighting products from Fire extinguishers to Fire Fighting Trucks and ambulances.
How I started authoring Websites:
About 12 years ago, I had a massive heart attack and was lucky to survive after having an open heart surgery. I was advised complete rest and took sick leave from the company for almost 6 months. During this period, I was so bored doing nothing, that I started using the internet. I was so fascinated with the capabilities of the internet, that I wanted to make my own web sites. This led me to learning web design and finally writing and making my own web sites. Some of the sites made by me in alphabetical order are:
