He had the privilege of serving the nation as a Commissioned Officer of the Indian Air Force for over two decades. His service in the IAF was a blessing to him and an invaluable gift. He came out of the IAF as a Squadron Leader, on premature retirement, with the firm determination of serving the nation from a different platform.
He had accepted a few senior teaching faculty positions in prestigious management staff colleges, soon after he came out of the IAF. This included the position of the first Executive Director of the oldest Management Association of India.
Kunneth Ramakrishnan had established the first private Management Institute in South India, “Centre for Developmental Education” (CDE). It was affiliated to the Bangalore University and approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). His dream was to build an outstanding Management Academy in Bangalore, but failed. He had the professional strength and the iron will power to do so, but lacked the money power. Yet he tried his best for about twelve years.
During the preceding period of two years, before the CDE was established, he had designed and conducted a very large number of pertinent Management Development Programmes for the managers of public sector organisations, banks, industries and government departments. He had also coordinated and organised a number of seminars and conferences on Management practices, Human Relations and Industrial Relations. His contribution as a resource person to the Indo-Australian New Horizon Programme in Management Education and Enterprise Management was well appreciated and acknowledged by the Australian High Commission in India.
He is the author of an innovative and integrated management book from India, “Managerial Leadership in Multicultural Organisations- Challenging the challenges of Globalisation”, Published by PHI-Learning. India. This original book is essentially the outcome of his own research. His unique experience of the international professional interactions added strength to his bold convictions presented in the book.

This book is written focussed on the interests of intelligent, hardworking and ambitious young men, young women and their parents. Overconfident, energetic and independent young people take impulsive decisions, oblivious of future consequences. All those who are born on this earth are entitled to enjoy a comfortable, dignified and healthy life. It does not happen always. Mainly because they are not groomed to achieve this objective, with realistic visions, life skills, attitudes and emotional stability.
Most parents are preoccupied with day-to-day survival problems and social issues. They leave the task of grooming their children to teachers. Overcrowded educational institutions are in business mode in our free India. The Gurus are a demoralised and discriminated lot in the technology ridden and competitive employment market. Most young people, therefore, are forced to go through a trial and error approach to improve their lifestyle.
Making a wrong decision is easy. Getting out of its clutches is complicated or even disastrous. Some of them surrender to defeats and get left out on the journey of life. Some of them challenges the challenges and come out victorious. But, by then a major part of their precious life would have already expired.
“Eclipse of Dreams” deals with the battered life of a man, a living model, which might save some young people waiting to commit mistakes or take wrong decisions. It also throws light on some of the hidden and inappropriate social and political issues, for the young people of India to take on.
