About Me

Born in Chennai, right under the lap of Lord Kapaleeswarar & Karpagambal in the famed Mada street of Mylapore.

- at the same place where the great poet  Thiruvalluvar was born.

- the place with that gigantic tower  built in the 16th century by the Vijayanagara kings.

House where I was born - Pic dated 1950

After initial education at Sri Karpagambal Palika Bala Patasala (more popularly known in Mylapore as தாடி வாத்யார் school), moved over to one of the most popular schools in the area viz., P.S.High School.

After the Pre-University Course at the A.M.Jain College, Minambakkam, cycled for three years to D.G.Vaishnav College, Arumbakkam, Chennai, for doing Bachelors in Math.

In the midst of the the first year of M.S in Math at the Vivekananda College, moved over for better academic ambitions in pursuit of Civil Services, when the call for auditor position beckoned and joined the Accountant General's office.

After a brief stint at the Central Government office, joined the Indian Overseas Bank in 1976 where I was associated with various operational exposures until 2001, when I voluntarily moved out in pursuit of my other ambitions.

A wonderful eight years of exposure at various roles with the IT Industry provided greater meaning and path to occupational opportunities.

Pursuing my childhood passion of teaching, trying to emulate my Professor brother
Travelling to the places less and more travelled

 -  having my hands full with those I want to do and expected to do.

Life has just begun & miles to Go !
