Dell Stinnett blogged forward to me. Thanks Dell for that. And serious apologies for the delay in honoring the same.

For those of you who are not familiar with Moshe Naveh’s challenge, you can read about it here. Or you can follow the trend #BIF on twitter. Frankly, it’s nice tempting and innovative initiative. Thanks! Moshe.

I’m, Jyoti Prakash from a country which is seventh-largest by area with many cultures thriving among over 1.2 billion people.

Yes, that’s INDIA.

I grew up in different parts of India. All credit goes due to my father’s profession, as he being a defense personal. Due to that, every second year, we were in new place with new people. And my subsequent, even my professional life spread across India. But, this gave me an opportunity to be part of different culture, religion, tradition, food & language.

I first can in association with software in 1994 starting with DOS & BASIC along with my first personal Sony Walkman. Below timeline will brief you about my other personal milestones.

Timeline.JPG

In current company, I am working with some wonderful & energetic people. My role involves working as functional consultant for Order Management, Aftermarket and Distribution

I love to

  • Travelling(off course! I never traveled outside India)
  • Play around with Microsoft Excel & Strategic games like Edios Interactive Commando (Green Beret) Series & Microsoft Studios’ Age of Empire Series.
  • Reading books both fictional and non fictional
  • Listening music(Mostly bollywood)

But, most of them are activities of past. Why?

As, now, my most of the time at home is spend with and around my son, Nathan. His energy level & stamina is inspiration for me. I really love the way this 19 months old boy explores & play around with things.

In result, I’m trying to shade out little weight. In fact, I lost 22 pounds in 6 months. Wish to continue the same.

Below are my answers for 3 Questions asked by Dell.

a. What 5 things do you absolutely want to achieve in life?

  1. @SCN: want to don role as SAP Mentor
  2. As part SAP career, definitely want to be Manager for end to end SAP implementation.
  3. From family point view, I would like to encourage, aspire & providing foundation to my child/children to be Global Citizen.
  4. Socially want to take greater initiative and be part of global movement for Global Warming.
  5. I would want to write, direct & produce an animation documentary.

b. If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?

Hmm… Interesting!!! This made me think really hard…As there many real life heroes to follow. But comic super hero?

So what I did is I took an online superhero questionnaire to know to which Super Hero my personally matches. In that process I get this:

What I
understood form above that u want to do lot of thing also u want write a
lot…but if u  focus on one thing then it
will be better means if u want to wr4ite about ur relationship with ur father
or how ur father job impacted in your life…..(If you could be a super hero (or
are in your spare time) who would you be?)
lets do it in simple way…

U write both
of the story ..then we will make which one is better…

And I will go with it. So,

In brightest day, in blackest night,
Despite our shape, our size, our height,
We’re birds who walk, which isn’t right,
But starting now, we will take flight!

c. What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?

I’m fortunate to be associated with some good people and project.

But, nearest to my heart is my assignment & association @SAP India during 2008-09,where I was member pre-sales SAP consulting team for public sector.

  • Privileged to work along with some renowned name’s in SAP, (but, unsung on SCN) like, Srinivas Kolluru, Yogesh Seth, Anupam Garg, Ripu Daman Singh, Santunu Chatterjee & Rajiv Jain.
  • Got real expose to cross functional role.
  • Continuous hunger to learn more and every day.
  • Mindset & work attitude for gearing & replicating to achieve something BIG.

Blog it Forward

I like to forward this to:

G Lakshmipathi, who is my idol in SCN and simply genius.

Ivano Raimondi, who one best contributor in SAP SD Billing topics space. To refer to him, definitely, he would propose the best solution possible

Anupam Kumar

Questions I’d like that I Blog it Forward to answer:

  1. If you could be a super hero(frictional) who would you be?
  2. If you have spare time, what 3 activities you do (other than being on SCN)?
  3. What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?

      Thanks for your comments & appreciation. Frankly, that was your Blog to Forward which inspire me to post and share little about me.

      Weight loss! 😆 In fact, I started pretty late than my wife’s post pregnancy. That is only after Nathan started walking. Secret? Apart from our regular exercise. Kid keep us of engage & running. So, hardly able to sit at one place at home.

      Best Regards, JP

    Hi Jyoti, and welcome to the #BIF.   What a wonderful initiative started by xMoshe Naveh (Old Acct)!

    I once took a superhero quiz, and I was also the Green Lantern, but I didn’t like that (I thought he was lame) so I kept taking the quiz.  Maybe I should try again, with a more open mind.

    Love Nathan – he looks like a sweetie.

    And congrats on the weight loss – it’s a very hard thing to do – especially when you have 5 great things that you want to accomplish.  Keep up the good work!
    Cheers,
    Sue

    The way you presented the blog is excellent and my advance congratulations to become a Project Manager. 😆 .   In my current project, I am tied up with lot of issues, grooming junior resources and due to this, not able to concentrate much in SCN and hence, your blog has missed my attention to comment immediately.  Since you have tagged me also here to BIF, not sure, when I will be in a position to present fairly, if not as like you have presented due to lack of time as stated above.  Surely, will try to post before this week end.

    Regards

    G. Lakshmipathi

    What a great blog and such a nice picture of little Nathan!

    It was surprising to learn that we not only share the same initials 🙂 but also a passion for startegy games. Although I prefer less military games, such as classic Civilization.

    Congrats on the weight loss, it must be difficult with all the delicious Indian food there to tempt you. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Jyoti Prakash Post author

      Jelena,

      First of all, congratulation on becoming SAP Mentor.

      Yeah, it is surprising for me too, that we share same initials . Frankly, I never observe that same before. So, which sort of strategy games you follow?

      Weight loss! Yes, you are right resisting…Indian cuisine is not that easy. In fact, the people know me well. They call me “foodie” and they know my temptation for good food. But, that is becoming history now. 😉

      Even it was nice to know you from your BIF

      Thanks.

      Best Wishes, JP

    Dear Jyoti Prakash,

    It’s really great to know about you. I am surprised that you still remember what you have done 20 years back and what you used 😯 . The table representation with all your accessories, educational details and experience details are really appreciated.

    Most of your answers are straight forward and very useful.

    You baby is so cute and cap is looking nice 🙂 .

    I wanted to work with some people in my life time and you are one among them.

    Thanks,

    Narasimhulu

      20 Years! 😯

      Yeah! Seriously, I never realised that my timeline is close to 20 Years.

      Well, each milestone is close to my heart. They had their own challenges and initial hiccups,  but, wonderful memory & journey to relish. Whether it to own 1st personal portable music player to each assignment I took up as SAP Professional.

      Well, as one of my previous Manager said in his farewell speech, “SAP it’s a small world after all. Anytime we can cross each other.”

      So, lets keep our hopes high.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Best Wishes, JP

      you didnt mention about your native or your current location!

      In fact, I deliberately did that. If you look for me on any of the Social Networking site, you will come to know about me little more.

      Frankly, I prefer being know as an Indian, courtesy to my defense background. From childhood we were never encourage differentiated ourselves based on religion & state. But, obviously my mother tongue is not “Hindi” or “English”.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Best Wishes,
