Naresh Minocha’s CV 


I am a tireless knowledge worker. My desire for knowledge is unlimited. Acquisition of knowledge, its aggregation and analysis in itself gives me intrinsic satisfaction. 
Journalism is my passion - It has been my first and last profession for the last 36 years. I write on economy, business, technology and governance and polity. I am known for my in-depth write-ups on energy especially oil and gas and power, chemicals including petrochemicals and fertilizers, telecommunications, agriculture and policy and regulatory issues.
I have worked for both Indian and foreign media entities. I intend to emerge as an author - an objective that has been delayed for several years due to unavoidable factors. I, however, firmly believe it is never too late to make a new beginning. I pray and wish I would one day die with my boots on.

The literary works that inspired me and shaped my life from the university days onwards include: An essay perhaps titled ‘Blessed are those Born Poor’ by Prof. William James; another essay titled ‘A Message to Garcia’ by Elbert Hubbard; a Book captioned ‘The Technique of Getting Things Done’ by Donald Laird and Eleanor Laird; and Swami Vivekananda and his works.

As you know F I R lodgment is a problem in India and persons are suffering since long as they are unable to furnish F I R on the loss of any important documents like Share Scripts, Land Deed, House/ Flat Ownership Papers etc. as many a times these documents are misplaced by them or they lose it while travelling, shifting house etc. Even we have observed instances where it gets stolen while travelling and people don't know the procedures upfront. Hence Govt. of India should waive this and provide relief. In case total waiver is not possible i.e. in all the cases then this waiver should be provided where any release of documents [ such as Share Scrip, Land Deed etc.] authorities require notarised Indemnity Bond on stamp Paper , notarised affidavit on Stamp Paper etc. besides F I R
