One of the few journalists who understands and follows the IT industry in India, Onkar has been a close witness to the rise of the IT industry during and post the recession. He has played a key role by contributing to the transformation of the industry through his thought-provoking features and articles. He has been the voice of the startup companies and given them ample platform by covering their challenges. As a result, the industry is no longer limited to mere services but is looking seriously at home-grown products. Onkar belongs to the 2nd generation of IT journalists whose passion is still intact in understanding the nuances of the companies and users. He is one of the few journalists who are willing to follow this beat with vigor despite the challenges in this media domain. He's written at length about the challenges and opportunities which the industry offers. There is barely a well-known IT company he's not covered or written about. Besides, he has displayed his thought leadership by incisive articles on various tech trends which have engulfed the enterprise world. Because of his constant interactions with users, enterprises, CIOs, CXOs, CFOs of almost all verticals - BFSI, Retail, Pharma, Healthcare, ITeS, Education and SMBs, among others--he has tried to bring the solution providers and user organizations closer. Besides, Onkar is an author and a poet. He writes in his spare time. The proof of his passion for literary arts lies in his literary e-journal http://literaryyard.com/ which he runs as a hobby. It publishes articles, poems and stories shared by a host of authors from all over the world.
