I have a Masters in Electrical and Computer Engg and am currently working with a very fast growing Networks company - Riverbed Technology. I am aggressive in my career and I am planning to start a business in a few years. (I am currently considering a MBA with a focus on Public Policy and Behavioral Economics.) Apart from my career aspirations I do have varied interests.
I am an amateur musician (keyboard, harmonica, saxophone). I captain a Club-level cricket team, play Squash & Table Tennis actively and other sports (out of interest). This Summer I will start playing Rugby too. I am fairly outdoorsy and love adventure/ nature trips. I read books - my fav authors: P G Wodehouse, Jerome K Jerome and Arthur Hailey. I have a strong passion for writing. I write stories and some day intend to write and publish my books.
I love learning different cultures and languages (Spanish is my 6th language. I can read Spanish newspapers). I admire art and people who are... more talented - especially in Music, Singing, Dance and Painting. I have done serious plays and light comedies. In March 2014 I did my most recent play and am looking to continue pursuing theater as a hobby.
I also like to volunteer and help people out. I was a tutor at a medium security prison and I learned a lot of things about life through the prisoners. I got complimented many times by the inmates on my knowledge and ability to speak on a variety of topics. Also on how disarming and bold I am to be able to speak sensitive topics with a certain ease and tact.
I love to keep all around me as happy as I can. I encourage people to pursue their dreams and hobbies. I am looking for someone who'll fit into our loving and amiable family and complement me in life. We lived in Bombay for quite long and are currently settled in Bangalore.
Our family has a nice blend of cosmopolitan culture yet rooted in orthodox Andhra Brahmin traditions / values.
My father is a Senior Manager at a MNC and my mother is a home-maker. We are a warm and caring family that is loved by our extended family and friends.
My father raised me to be ambitious and industrious and yet his humility and charity taught me to be stay rooted and be useful to others while enjoying life.
My mother is a simple person who is very optimistic even in the wake of difficulties. From her I learn how to value the things in life that are not learned in academics.
My grandparents loved me a lot and through their lives and stories I still am inspired. Both my grandfathers were the best in their fields of work. And both had varied interests.
We are looking for alliances from girls who are in India or USA. Girls from UK, Australia or other countries who may be willing to relocate are acceptable too. We are considering Brahmins from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu too so long as the interests match and rest of the family gels too.
