I am half Shia-half Sunni by birth, thus if sect is of importance to you or your family please ignore my profile. Also, only interests from people residing in the USA will be appreciated, since I am based here.
I grew up in India and moved to the US 6 years ago for graduate school. Right now, I live in San Diego, California and love my job as an IC Design Engineer. I am looking to find a partner to share the joys (and disasters) of my life with, so here I am setting up a profile on a matrimonial site. By the way, this method of finding love makes the romantic inside me cringe, but turns out this may be my best shot at finding my 'wavelength' match (better than my aunt's neighbor's maid suggesting a boy, don't you think?).
My varied group of friends would describe me as a confident and grounded, equally left and right brained woman. I am linear, analytical, ambitious and realistic; yet I am creative, vivid, imaginative and impulsive. I have equal affection for both technology and shoes. I own books on both mathematics and makeup. I am a girl who dislikes pink and loves Mustangs (I find pink Mustangs to be the worst torture an automobile can ever be subject to). I abhor hypocrisy and admire honesty. As for the more tangible aspects of my being, I love music (the full spectrum - from Rock to Ghazals), reading, theater, travelling (especially road trips off the beaten path), cooking, beaches, sunsets and cars, amongst other things.
Although I grew up in India, I am pretty liberal in thought. I hold the 'Golden Rule' and humanity in high regard. I believe religion should be a personal guide, and not a yardstick to judge others by.
About my family:
Both my parents are established doctors and run their own medical practice in Uttar Pradesh, India. I have an elder brother and two elder sisters, myself being the youngest. My parents raised us with great emphasis on education, self-worth, family and faith. It is probably an understatement to say we are a 'close-knit' family; we love each other to bits. We are a global family which is deeply connected across time zones - I mean the multiple calls a week, video chat every weekend, holiday together kind of connected.
About my prospective partner:
Does anyone know with absolute certainty all that they want in a life partner? It's not like I'm shopping for a car (to be honest that was a mighty tough decision as well!). There isn't a checklist that will qualify a person to be my soul mate - above all I have to feel it in my heart. However, at the least, my ideal partner would be intellectual, unfeigned, honest and passionate about both his work and family. If he is infested by the travel bug, is fluent in English and can make me laugh - he's a quarter way there! If you feel like you and I could share our wisdom and quirks and grow together, as individuals and as one, drop in a line.
