 Family History



Nanganallur Thatha and Patti

I was born as the second child to my wonderful parents on the 23rd of October 1979.  I have a lovely sister named Aishwarya. My dad was always changing jobs and this way we managed to see a lot of places. We all were in Chennai for the first 4 years of my life where my dad was working in Ashok Leyland Ltd. My mom was teaching at a school in Chennai while my sister and I studied in a school called "Padma Seshadri".

My dad then got a job in Swaraj Mazda now known as Swaraj and we moved to the city of Chandigarh. It was a beautiful city and we spent two wonderful years there. My mom worked in DAV High School and my sister and I studied in the same school. But then our stay in Chandigarh was marred by terrorism spreading its roots in Punjab. 

So, we finally moved out from Chandigarh to Rudrapur, a small sleepy town very near Nainital at the foot of the Himalayas. My dad was worked there in a company called Shriram Honda. My sister and I studied in a school called "Campus School" in a university town called Pantnagar.  We spent four years in Rudrapur. Here my mom served as the Principal of R.A.N High School.

Wait!!! I am not finished yet. :-)

My dad left Rudrapur for a better future and it was " Welcome Pune!!" for all of us. We now left the towns and villages far behind and came to Pune, one of India's most educated and well behaved city.  My dad here worked for Bharat Forge Ltd, one of the largest forging companies in the world.  My mom worked as a teacher in Rosary High School for 8 years and now is working in St. Felix High School, a convent school for girls. My sister did her schooling from St.Marys and then attended the Wadia Junior College. She then got into one of Pune's best known engineering colleges; PICT. She completed her engineering with distinction throughout and got admission in University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign (UIUC), one of the best institutions in the United States of America. Here she excelled and now is working for Oracle in California.

As for me, I completed my schooling from Army Public School in Pune. I attended the Saraswati Vidhyalaya Union High School and Junior College (S.V.Union). One of the good things about that college is that it is located right in the heart of the city. Those were some of the best years in my life. I later joined Sinhgad College of Engineering (SCOE) in the Electronics and Telecommunication department. Well, after completing my graduation from SCOE in 2001, I joined the University of Texas at Arlington in the Electrical Engineering department.

I graduated from UT Arlington in August 2004 and am working for Qualcomm in San Diego.
