About Me

I wish I had been Sourav Ganguly or Barrack Obama or Roger Federer or atleast Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire). But I am Sourish Dey. But then, I wish to remain Sourish atleast till the end of this round.

Reach me at mailsourish at gmail dot com. ( I hate spammers!)

Work Experience:

I am working as Account Manager – Unified Communications at Siemens Enterprise Communications Pvt. Ltd. for voice, video and data solutions. Video Conference Solutions, Voice solutions – EPABX, IPBX, VOIP solutions is my work area now. My work email is dey.sourish at siemens-enterprise dot com.

Before joining Siemens, I was at Panorama Electronics Pvt. Ltd. as Project C0-ordinator in the Electronic Security Solutions division. Panorama was a great learning experience and being a “big fish in a small pond” at Panorama helped me gain a lot of valuable experience that gave me the kick-start I needed in my career. And, I liked my work on electronic security systems -cctv, access control, etc. Visit to IFSEC 2008, New Delhi increased my interest multiple times.

Brief Academic Profile:

I loved studying what was not on syllabus or things that will never help me score in exams. As a result, I ended up as an average student all my life by academic records.

I have joined the EMBA 2011 program at Vinod Gupta School of Management (IIT Kharagpur) and enjoying being part of this prestigious institution.

I did my engineering in Electronics and Communications from Heritage Institute of Technology, Kolkata. Few colleges have a better campus in Eastern India.

I did my schooling from South Point High School. South Point was at one time in the Guiness Book of World Records for being the largest school in the world by number of students. The school still remains one of the best by academic performances in board exams.South Point days will be sure the best days in my life.

I will like to mention that my first client was my school. I followed it up with my college  (both CCTV Surveillance System for their campuses). I loved going back to my alma mater to do business.

Social Network:

I am on Orkut from the days when it had only Brazilians. I used to login to Orkut as soon as I go online. I have a Twitter profile but I don’t get the point behind Tweeting. However, these days I can usually be found at Facebook. I am also checking out Google Circles.

Hobbies / Passions / Other Activities

I am galvanized by gadgets especially mobile phones. This attractions burns multiple holes in my small pocket.

I liked reading – mostly on current affairs and business. I subscribe to a number of magazines like India Today, Business India, Outlook Traveller and recently BBC Knowledge. Apart from that, my favourite authors has been Arthur Hailey and Satyajit Ray. I still continue revising the complete collections of Tintin and Asterix handed down to me by my father. Off late I liked reading both of Khaled Hosseini’s bestsellers – The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Oh! I love watching movies! A good movie on a Sunday makes my weekend bliss! I dont like science fiction. My list of favourite movies include The Godfather Series, The Forest Gump, Lawrence of Arabia, Notting Hill, Cast Away, Casablanca, A Few Good Men, Troy, Serendipity, The Kite Runner, etc. As one can see, the genre is not important.  The Company Men, EnemI recently bought a 2GB Seagate External HDD to take care of my collection of movies.

I recently got my first car – Maruti Alto LXI. I am loving it.
