Born in 1963 and brought up in Chanch village of Almora district in picturesque Uttarakhand, India, Girdhar Joshi did his schooling in the village. After completing intermediate from GIC Manila, he migrated to Delhi in search of fodder. He received his bachelor degree in commerce from Delhi University in 1986 and subsequently earned Diploma in Business Management form IGNOU and master degree in Business Administration from Punjab Technical University. He started his career with central government in New Delhi in 1983 and quit the job in 1998 to start his own business in software development, which still earns him his bread.
Girdhar Joshi has already published some books on management and information technology. Information Technology for Retail (2009) and Management Information Systems (2013) have been published by Oxford University Press, New Delhi; and co-authored IT in Retail (2012), published by Vikas Publishing Co., Noida. Bedaul Kataran, a collection of his poems written in Hindi was published in 2014.
