My name is Sumeet Soni and I live in Mumbai-Surat with my wife and a pet labrador called Scotch, named after the drink from the land of Scotland. I am a business consultant, writer, jewellery designer, retailer, and manufacturer.
I love change and get bored easily and hence every other year I pick a new hobby and explore it.
Last year I picked up writing and I hope my love of words stay with me forever. I am kind of obsessed with it in some way.
My past indulgence has been Travelling, Motorcycle riding, Reading, Music, Computer Gaming, Vagabonding, Backpacking, Cooking and yes there have been chemical dependencies too (Not proud of it and don’t recommend anyone either).
Three truths I live by are Impermanence, Paradox, and Irony. My whole idea of life can be extracted out of those 3 words.
To pay my bills I run a diamond jewellery manufacturing/retail firm with my wife. Together we have a couple of other business’s too in consultancy and education sector.
My passion lies within all forms of arts, and hence designing jewellery is more than mere business for me, it’s my purest expression of self and the only art-form that actually pays my bills.
I am a heterosexual man yet I spend most of my days with women, you see almost all my clients and co-workers are females and that has helped me understand both the sexes with utmost ease.
I consume a unclouded first-hand perception of the opposite sex during the day, whereas my evenings are filled chiefly with guys drinking, watching movies, independent cinemas, exploring Rock n Roll, Metal, Progressive Rock, club-hopping and creating bad music.
I have worked too much in my teenage years (I joined family business at the age of 16, which I had to quit in few years for being too opinionated, then I did job at mid- management level in corporate sector for few years, until I founded my own firm with my wife), and now in my late 30’s don’t have much to do. Hence, this blog exists.
I have worked in a strict “selling-your-soul” kind of corporate environment for 7 years of my life, while my best pals are in purist of all sorts; most of them are –
Service – Most of my college friends became bankers and financiers. I don’t know how this happened but it did. Ironically I am still friends with each of them.
I love motorcycles, guitar, books, scotch, and single malts!
Art – Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Banksy, …let this one list rest, it can get pretty long.
I accept life’s every aspect, ups and downs alike!
You can read my complete story as I write it in this space in coming months.
