From an IT Executive to Novel Writer, Pushpak Sarkar--Author of 'The Songwriter'
An alumnus of IIT Kharagpur, Mr Pushpak ('86) is an acknowledged Data Management authority, a published author and speaker at many international conferences. He spent the early part of his life in India and then relocated to the U.S. where he now works as an Executive IT Architect in the financial & IT services industry.
