Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. I'll be quick (or not).
I have completed my B.E. and MBA. I am currently working as a Consultant at an IT company. While I've been born and brought up in Ahmedabad, I'm currently in the USofA. I have been out and about... spending a good amount of time in Bangalore, Chennai, Bengal, and the Netherlands..
I like to think I am a balanced, friendly, funny, patient individual. I take time to be comfortable around people, but once I open up, I am fun to be around.
I am crazy about books and football. I spend a lot of my free time reading. I like to think, and I hold opinions about a lot of things in life. I like to discuss these, and be challenged with different perspectives. An intellectually stimulating conversation is a big thing for me. While I don't mind routine, I like to break out of it every once in a while. I've recently taken up running, and my longest distance is a half-marathon.
We are a family of four. My father is a doctor. Mom is a homemaker who has been a beautician, a fitness consultant, a yoga-guru and a teacher at different times. My sister is happily married, runs her own IT company, and has a little baby boy :).
The extended family is quite large, and consists of a lot of doctors (and a few engineers, architects and businessmen). It is generally speaking, a well-educated, well off bunch of people.
My parents are also my best friends. They are the most important people in my life, and I like to do my best to live up to their expectations. I expect my partner to understand this, and treat them as her parents. I can guarantee that they will treat her as their daughter. Marriage should add to both families, and not take away from any of them.
Our family's outlook towards life bends towards liberal. There are no hangups about caste, creed, sect, religion etc. Honesty, trust, and goodness of heart is valued more than anything else
To my mind, marriage is a huge decision. It doesn't matter what caste / sect my partner is from. What is important is that she is understands me, and respects my opinion. At the same time, I expect to be challenged and stimulated to get better. I want marriage to be the centre of a wonderful life, and not just descend into a routine.
Oh, and if you are a stickler for grammar and spelling, I'll love you that little bit extra :)
To me, this decision is not one to be taken after a few meetings / discussions, or under pressure. I'd prefer to get to know her for a bit (and vice versa) before finally deciding to take the plunge to spend the next (at least?) 50 years of my life with her. So, ideally, I'd like to get talking, and then see if there is a spark / chemistry, before finally involving parents and elders for the serious stuff, and taking the plunge.
This does not mean parents are not important. My parents will be involved in the decision making as I expect hers to be as well. Only, I do not want to begin with the "what do you think?" question hovering in the background at all times.
I realize, this may put you off... In which case, I wish you all the very best in your search and hope you find someone you like. If you're still reading and the rest of the profile interests you, you need to:
1. Have a look at the Partner-preferences section as well.
2. Smile if you nodded along to most of that.
3. Pick up the phone, and give me a call. We'll see how it goes from there :).
PS: I'd appreciate if your profile is complete, before you contact me. If would be nice if you have pictures, and some detail about what you think of marriage, and what you're looking for in a partner, beyond the usual "charming, good natured etc" .. Or at least, let me know when you express interest.
PPS: I am not a premium member now, so a request that you leave your contact details when you do express interest.

About My Partner
You'll need to respect family. You'll have to know how to laugh, at world, at life, and at yourself.
You need to be the person who'll comfort me when I am down, and kick me in the rear when I'm being lazy. You need to be someone who wants to move forward, and improve herself all the time. You need to be the person who will plan trips - because I suck at the planning part of it. You must know how to cook. I intend to learn from you. You'll need to be the one who keeps a conversation going. I can respond better than I can create conversation. You need to be able to hold and articulate opinions. You need to enjoy music. You need to be just the right amount of spontaneous.
Brownie points if you love books, and do nt typ lyk dis!
You'll need to be the daughter to my mother and father. And you'll be the life of the house.
