About The Founder
“The Professional Profile of The Maestro”
He is one of the finest living examples of Cicero’s quote:
“Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.”
Born with a highly inquisitive and profoundly analytical mind, nurtured to identify problems and produce creative, innovative and effective solutions. Artistic and Articulate, the Maestro has honed his inherent abilities in Handwriting, Calligraphy, Public Relations and Public Speaking. Leadership laced with Organising, Coordinating and Executive skills. He is not only self-taught and self-made, but he has additionally become a self-actualised and self-realised person.
He has been living a life as an “exception to the rule” by breaking through formal cordons of academics & paper qualifications, with his “Auto-didacticism”. The great Italian Leonardo da Vinci inspired him. People who have experienced his multi-dimensional capabilities and performance in his preferred disciplines have defined him as:

Co-Author of the first-ever book on Handwriting
in Asia-Pacific region.
“The world’s one and the only true Handwriting All Rounder ever!”
He prefers calligraphy to emphasise on accuracy and beauty and to prove that people with epilepsy can be creative, well-organised and established achievers with distinction and can lead a respectful meaningful, eventful and satisfying life, to refute the myths about people with epilepsy.

He has been featured a considerable number of times in print, television and digital media for his achievements. All his accomplishments have been, not because of, but, despite numerous obstacles in LIFE, utilising his inherent capabilities to achieve and excel in his preferred fields.
During the year 2002, The Gallup Organization of U.S.A. has analysed him and summed him up as follows:
He is a MAXIMIZER:
Excellence, not average is his measure! He polishes his strengths and capitalises on the natural gifts, which he is blessed with.
He shoulders RESPONSIBILITY:
This forces him to take psychological ownership for anything he commits, whether small or big, he feels emotionally bound to follow it through completion.
He is a COMMUNICATOR:
He likes to explain, describe, speak in public, and to write. He believes that ideas are the dry beginning; events are static unless it is brought to life, energised and make them exciting and vivid. He converts events into stories and tells them effectively. His hunt for dramatic and powerful word combinations makes people like to listen to him. His word pictures stimulate the listener’s interest, sharpen their world, and inspire them to act.
He likes COMPETITION:
He is gracious to his fellow competitors and even stoic in defeat, he does not compete for the fun of competing, he competes to win, he likes contests because they must produce a winner.
He has SELF – ASSURANCE:
He looks at the world with a unique and distinct vision, no matter what the situation, he seems to know the right decision. This final accountability for a living does not intimidate him; on the contrary, it is natural to him. This theme lends an aura of certainty.
Unlike many, he is not swayed by someone else’s arguments, no matter how persuasive they may be. His Self-Assurance is
STRONG and SOLID, like the keel of a ship, which makes him withstand many different pressures and keeps him ON HIS COURSE.
