MANOJ ARORA, an IT Executive by profession, has worked for the best of Fortune 500 organizations across the globe in his 20 years strong Electrical Engineering and Information Technology career. After being a Gold medalist in his Engineering College at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Manoj kicked off his engineering career in 1994 with Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T).Though being a top performer in his job, he dreamt of a life where he can experience true freedom and happiness - which did not seem to be coming from salary increments and rise each year.
After a 5-6 year succesful stint with L&T, he decided to reboot his career by switching to the Information Technology (IT) industry. After the teething struggles, he succesfully worked for some of the biggest global organisations in the IT industry including Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and International Business Machines (IBM).
During his enriched career, he saw that most of the people around him are stuck in the same rat race, facing similar challenges, undergoing the same frustration and stress, and having no clue of how to come out of this meaningless loop in order to live their true dreams. Most of them had no idea whether a better life is even feasible.
Hailing from a middle class family in Delhi, India and having the exposure and experience to stay in varied societies and religions across the globe, he has been able to capture the pulse of the people and what gives true happiness to them.An IT executive turned author, he has to his credit some bestselling books like From the Rat Race to Financial Freedom (2013), Happiness Unlimited (2014), Dream On (2015), and Autobiography Of A Stock (2018). Founder trustee of Kalpavriksha - a tree plantation NGO, Manoj lives by his life's mission to elevate the world around him.
