Hi, before starting I want to inform you that this profile is primarily managed by my mother. I do visit at intervals.
"As one doesn't consider the cover to judge a book,
one shouldn't evaluate a person just by her or his look.
Looks are important but do not matter much to me
as I believe there is much more in a person than what two eyes can see."
Having said that, let's begin. If you want to know a person, few pics and sentences are not enough. I thank my sister for her help in assessing me from a girl's perspective. I have tried to be informative here. Hope this limns me close enough.
Family (is important):
Ours is an education-centric service family of doctors, engineers and lawyers living in India, UK, USA and a few other countries. We have a mix of different cultures in our family. Being the son of two individuals who are respected for their kindness and compassion, I try to live up to the expectations. My dad is in public sector management and mom is a home manager (with Mathematics honors). My kid sister, student at National Institute of Technology, has completed her internship at Indiana University funded by Indian and US Govt (Yes, she's smarter than I am :) ).
My parents are looking for a daughter, not a daughter-in-law; and your family will get a son in return (I mean and value my words and commitments). Not a bad deal, is it? Both our families should approve of each other.
I am working in the Architecture team of a fortune 50 Insurance company. I was college topper during B.Tech with merit scholarship and had MS offers from IIT and ISI in India and State University in US. I did fairly well in school - academics and co-curricular activities; with scholarship and gold medal at national science exams. I have a decent professional record with Int'l Awards, Publications and a Patent. I enjoy my leisure in writing poetry/blogs, outdoor activities, doing my share for the society and environment and spending time with my loved ones. Being an avid nature and animal lover, I wish to raise my family in a home (having pets) away from the hustle and bustle of cities. I think it's better to tell this upfront - Money is important but there are more important stuffs in life for me. I have recently declined a job offer of $1** K + benefits. I know I am sounding boastful, but people who know me will agree to that I carry a humble personality with a kind heart along with optimistic approach towards life and a good sense of humor.
As a person I'm well rooted, straight forward, level-headed and a progressive thinker. I am spiritual, philosophical (at times) and I respect & question every faith equally. I've been part of social circles and lived with people speaking various languages - English, Hindi, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil; and belonging from diverse ethnic backgrounds. I am more fluent in English and Hindi than my mother tongue and unfortunately I am not a stereotypical Bengali because of my schooling (from Kendriya Vidyalaya). I cannot guarantee that life will be bed of roses, but I can assure that I will be there for my family, come what may (something I have learnt from and admire my parents for).
someone who is innocent but behaves maturely when needed, has self-respect but is selfless for her loved ones and has a broad MINDSET of a global citizen. I dislike lies, selfishness and narrow/ money-mindedness. She should understand that life is too short and valuable to waste on meaningless things. We can be from different religions, countries or have different mother tongues, professions or eating habits; but we should appreciate each other for who we are and should be open to SHARE our lives, respect each other's wishes & thoughts and most importantly PLAN for the future together.
I believe I've managed to scare you off. If not, then I'll like to know you.
And if we are not meant for each other, I wish you the best in life.
