I have close to 14 years of experience, about which 12 years as hard core DBA. I have been a Microsoft SQL Server MVP for four years, and I am a published author of the book - SQL Server 2008 High Availability - a book for SQL Server DBA aspirants, System Administrators and Developers, it provides step-by-step information to get you through the installation of various SQL Server High Availability options like Clustering, Replication, Database Mirroring and Log Shipping.

I am working as a Team Technical Lead in one of the leading DBA consulting firm, working as a remote employee. When I am not busy working, you find me either writing blog articles, reading, drawing skatches sometime and participating on various SQL Server community including:

I also speaks under aegis of Surat User Group, DotNetChaps of which he is founding and active member. Also, I try to be as regular in posting articles as my friend Pinal Dave ( Blog | Twitter ), Vinod Kumar ( Blog | Twitter ) and Satya Shyam K Jayanty ( Blog | Twitter ) does, but I am too lazy to be as focused and dedicated like him.

what are others saying about my expertise?

You may find may different blogs on SQL Server, so my blog contain no differnt materials - except, that the situation we had are different!! So, that's the difference all the blogs have, someone has different situation and differnt approach towards reaching the solutions. I love technology, gadgets, books, however I have been able to restrict myself to write only SQL Server related posts here on this blog. Earlier I used to write posts as it come to my mind, now a days I am trying to be more ogranized while posting an article. I believe that I am blessed, that I have got real good projects during my career, it has been really very much enjoyable journey, I have made new friends and the number is still counting on....
