#FlohProfiles: Pankaj Rao

What’s special about Floh is that it is a very strong and an eclectic community. In an attempt to spotlight those that make up this community, we feature them in our intiative – FlohProfiles!

Our #FlohProfile this week is Pankaj Rao.

Pankaj is a charming guy who is very popular among the ladies. A total gentleman, he’s a stickler for time and a Bombay boy through and through. Let’s check out his story!

What’s your story?

If I tell my story here, I’d be pretty obsolete at Floh events!

Where did you grow up?

Out and out Mumbai bloke.

Did your profession choose you or did you choose your profession?

I chose my first profession and the second one chose
me!

Take us through the journey of your career?

A hospitality professional who is now in the world of shipping.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

Always wanted to be a cricketer.

Is there a celebrity’s life that you envy?

Narendra Modi. A man with minimal education rubbing shoulders with some of the most highly educated business professionals across the globe.

Keep it simple. A tee and jeans can do just fine.

Tell us about one of your quirks.

Extremely finicky about punctuality and can dislike the rains.

If you could ask for a gift from someone, what would it be?

Patience or even a new phone!

What are the causes you care deeply about?

World peace. No wait, that’s overdone. On a serious note, I’d say the cause of increasing facilities for the disabled and children with special needs.

What is your tech peeve?

My lousy mobile phone – Nexus 6P. Worst investment ever.

When was the last time you googled yourself and what was the most bizarre thing that surfaced?

Too much of Pankaj Udhas. Didn’t make me very khush!

The glorious period of cricket in the 90’s.

Cricket!

My phone, ironically.

Chandler Bing.
