Our daughter, Karuna, was born in Bangalore and grew up in Madurai, Ahmedabad and Mumbai (her schooling being in convents). We then moved back to Bangalore, where she completed her education. Karuna has a love for travelling, and has had the opportunity to travel to the US and UK on extended business trips, as well as to Thailand, Indonesia, and Europe on family vacations. Being brought up in India yet largely exposed to the world cultures, she has developed a strong cultural base with a global outlook. She is considerate, affectionate, elegant, kind and hardworking and has strong attachments to her family. She loves animals.
In June 2007, Karuna joined a global investment company, where she was quickly promoted thrice to the position of Senior Analyst in just three years. In 2010, she took a yearlong break from her well-settled career to give back to society; which she did by joining a non-profit organization as a teacher to underprivileged children. She rejoined her previous employer in 2011, and in view of her reputed track record and managerial abilities, has been further promoted to an 'Associate' since then. While Karuna looks forward to supplementing her education at an appropriate time, her current employer is fully committed and supportive of her career progression within the company.
In her spare time, she seizes the opportunity to catch up with friends, read, watch movies and spend time with her family. She is a graceful dancer and learnt Bharatanatyam at Mallika Sarabhai's Darpana Academy while in Ahmedabad.
Karuna is looking for a life partner who is smart, professionally successful and ambitious, family oriented, possesses a good sense of humor and who will respect her beliefs as well as have an identity of his own. We are looking for South Indian Brahmins residing in US, UK, India or South East Asia. We believe someone with a Masters in management, engineering, finance or law would be a suitable fit for our daughter. A compatible height of at least 5ft 9" is preferable.
As parents, we are also looking for a family we could bond with and have an affable social relationship with. The family should be of good social standing, liberal and humble.
The family has a very good professional and social standing. Karuna's father is a BE/MBA and is currently a Business Consultant as well as a Director in a large Indonesian company. He has served as a Board Member of the Aditya Birla Management Corporation Private Limited, reporting into Chairman Mr.Kumarmangalam Birla. Karuna's mother is an MSc in Microbiology and coaches children with learning disabilities. Her elder brother is an MBA from Berkeley, is married and well employed in California. Parents reside in Bangalore, with many members from the extended family settled in the US.
We have complete faith in the culture, foundation and values we've given to our daughter.
