I have got my Graduation Degree from IHM Calcutta a Unit of Institute of Hotel Management,Catering & Nutrition, Pusa New Delhi under Ministry of Tourism Govt. of India. I have started my carier in India in 5 stars hotel and got opportunity to work with Indian celebrity chefs Mr.Sanjib Kapoor and Mr.Milind Sohani.First 5 years I have spent in India.Then I have got opportunity to work aboard.I have spent my fifteen years in Cruise Ship Industry,and visited most of the coastal cities through out the globe,there I worked with world’s celebrity Chefs Danielle Balloon(USA),Carl Mulbegger(Germany),Carl Wingler(Germany),Chef Bernard Strumfull(Sweden),Nicholas & Mark Orlando (UK),Todd English (UK) and also got an opportunity to work with Mr Vicky Ratnani in the same kitchen in a cruise ship and also learnt how to maintain world class hygine and cleanliness.There I found that the huge scarcity of quality manpower in this industry.
As India’s hotel industry is ready to meet an unprecedented growth,it is facing a manpower crisis the likes of which it has never it has never seen before.Too few people are being trained for the industy,All this while a new hotel or restaurant is being added every week.
With India’s economy expanding by about 8% a year,the number of people travelling on business or for pleasure is booming.Every year,there are 540 million domestic travellers and the number of overseas tourist will increase from five million to 18 million 2016,according to HVS Hospitality Services, a consulting firm focused on the hotel industry.Where India now has 62,000 top-quality rooms for such travellers,by end of 2014 it is expected that there will be 150,000 rooms.But where are the chefs,butlers and bellboys to serve all the guests?
Hotel Association of India,estimates that the hotel industry will need to add 100,000 staff within four years,But only about a fifth of this number are even being trained and a big slice of them will not join the hotel indistry.
