I am Vinod Jetley. I now live in Chandigarh, which is on the foothills of Shivalik. I give God the glory in all I do. I have been on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in 1994.

I was born on October 19, 1953, in Una, Himachal Pradesh, India. I am a 1972 graduate {BSc(Hons), Maths} of Panjab University Chandigarh. I am a 1973 post-graduate (Diploma for Advanced Studies in Science, Theoretical Physics) of the University of Manchester, UK. I am also a 2004 post-graduate (M.Sc., Information Technology) of the Punjab Technical University Jalandhar. I also studied for (but did not complete) Fellow Program in Management (FPM) at Indian Institute of Management Calcutta during 1984-85.

I was appointed a tutor for Physics undergraduates at the Schuster Laboratory of the erstwhile Victoria University of Manchester during 1973-1975 while I was a Ph.D. student. The University is now known as the University of Manchester. I was not able to complete my Ph.D.

I joined the State Bank of India in 1977 as a Probationary Officer. I have been working there ever since in various capacities at various places(Ranchi, Hazaribagh, Bhagalpur, Muzaffarpur, Patna, Chicago, Bagaha, Chandigarh, Mohali, Ludhiana, Jammu, Panchkula & Mumbai). Last, I was an Assistant General Manager in the Asset Liability Management Department of the Bank from where I retired on 31st October 2013. The Department monitors the 'Interest rate risk' and the 'Liquidity Risk' of the Bank.

I like to go trekking. I have been on a trek to Rohtang pass(Himachal Pradesh), Hadrian's wall(Yorkshire), Pindari glacier(Kumaon), Kailash Parbat-Mansarovar(Tibet).

My daughter is now a Dental Surgeon ( has passed BDS examination and has completed her internship and is licensed to practice as Dental Surgeon).
