A published scholar in various fields , Indology , Vedic Sciences , Population Genetics , Technology. Widely read and deeply conversant with the Western Dialectic, its epistemology, academic mechanism of delivery, the effects it has on polity , culture, policy  and dissemination and the abrasive civilizational encounters between the Dharmic and the “rest”, he understands the pragmatics at play in the global kurukshetra , where Indian knowledge is used as an unacknowledged “source” by modern science and technology. Having built and consulted , 10+ technology startups, in different verticals, he is of the firm belief that the systems and infrastructure that Vedavaapi is building is a crucial missing piece in bringing Vedic knowledge in a modern dharmic context. He opines that if Dharma has to flower globally , knowledge systems aligned to and emanating from Dharma have to be embraced. The repository of knowledge that can be put to human good is immense and is just waiting for the right enabling platform. Vedavaapi is a possible first step in addressing the asymmetry in the narratives of modernity
