Yesterday I had the opportunity to catch up with my friend, customer and mentor – Anil Gupte here in Hong Kong. He is on a trip to Hong Kong to attend the Electronics fair that is being held in Hong Kong’s Asia World Expo.
He is an entrepreneur and a technologist par excellence and a great human being. A serial entrepreneur having built and sold successful IT firms in the US. He is currently working on his new venture and I had the opportunity to help him build a part of his system, while I was working as a free lance developer / consultant back in India.
Anil is a great teacher and a mentor. He is the one from where I get most of my first hand lessons on entrepreneurship. The other mentor being my father who has been a successful businessman since the past 30 + years.
Anil is a fighter, persistent, confident, positive, logical, patient, humble, down-to-earth and as he mentions he is not meant to fit into the corporate space. He loves challenges and looks at exploring life to the fullest.
He joined us for dinner at home last night.
Had a great trip to Shenzhen, China. Few of the snaps are as follows:
Lo Wu Commercial Centre:
Had an amazing time. Weather was very nice. Were awe struck to see the developments of Shenzhen, China.
18th February – Sunday, is Chinese New Year. Also known as the Spring Festival. This by far is one of the most important holidays for the Chinese. Most of Hong Kong is decorated with the traditional red color lanterns and flags.
Monday and Tuesday are national holidays in China and I am eagerly looking forward to a long weekend.
I have one more important reason to look forward to the holidays – my parents are visiting Hong Kong tomorrow. They will be here to spend time with us. I am very happy that my daughther – Nafisa will get to spend some good time with her grand parents, which she has been missing since the time she has come to Hong Kong.
Happy Chinese New Year to all! Have a wonderful year ahead!
