This is an announcement of what is a major career move for me and
hopefully for many others. I am launching Outlife, a new startup
venture in which will straddle Outbound Training; Adventure based
Experiential Learning's and Leadership Development into practice into
the corporate environment.
For the last 12 years, I have been in the Telecom Industry doing what
was a predictable job. More recently, since 4 years having founded
GHAC, I have been nurturing it and has today become the most active

Corporate Outbound and Training programmes and high value adventure
events, which is not possible under a volunteer organisation as GHAC.
With the profits earned from this new venture, we will be able to fund
the purchase of equipment and cover the operational costs of GHAC.
This cross subsidization will make it possible for GHAC members to do
our regular activities at an affordable cost. GHAC will continue as a
community nonprofit adventure club and has a long way to go to bring
Hyderabad on the Adventure Map of the world. I would continue to coach
and mentor the GHAC leadership team towards achieving the vision and
mission of GHAC.

the unknown. With the economy not doing well, I am quite aware of the
present rough times and it will not be easy for some time. I have
made a conscious choice to go through the rough path and I am quite
confident that I and my team will be very successful, in a relatively
