I am an Indian citizen, born and brought up in God’s Own Country, Kerala, which is in the southernmost part of
Alleppey (now known as Alappuzha, which is the Malayalam name of the beautiful town) is a port town, South of Cochin(Queen of Arabian Sea). Alleppey is commonly known as “The Venice of the East”. It is named so because of the abundance of canals and bridges like that in the city of
Alleppey is famous for its coir and spice products. With the development of
I have visited many places in the country. I am proud to say that Alleppey is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. The thought itself gives a lazy rich feeling. One of the cleanest beaches I have ever seen in India, is in Alleppey and its really a great feeling to spend the evenings here. The municipality has initiated the beautification of the city and I hope in the coming years, this town will enahance its beauty.
I did my kindergarten at
Later on I joined
I had very good Professors at my college as well as for tuitions. Prof. S. Krishnamoorthy, Prof. P.E. Muraleedharan, Prof. O. K. Govindan are some of them. They have really influenced my life a lot. I don't really know how to thank them. I make it a point to meet all of them every time I go to Kerala.
After my graduation I joined for M.Sc. Physics with Electronic Communication at the Department of Physics, University of Mumbai, with Scholarship. I had some good friends there also. Chitra was/is one of my best friends. She is now working with the Indian Army as Major. Mrudul was/is another good friend. Prof. Sankar Narayan has been a mentor for us during our Masters.
Immediately after my education I joined V.K.Krishna Menon College as a Lecturer in Physics, and worked there for about 3 years. This was a very good experience for me even though it is not counted so in the corporate world. While teaching, I was really influenced by my favourite Prof. S. Krishnamoorthy, in fact I was just copying his style of teaching, his style of writing and I was sure that my students were liking it. I believe that I could generate a passion among the students. Also one of the best achievements in the college was to bring the third year B.Sc. results to 90% before I left the college. I had some very good friends here also, with whom I am still in touch. Sujit (recently joined Deloitte), Poornima(married and left to US), Bibals Sir, Balu Sir, Praveen Sir, Gomathi Ma'm, Anu Ma'm etc. May be I was trying to learn something from every body.
Later on I left the college to join Sightsavers (www.sightsavers.org), an International Non Governmental Organisation working in the field of eye care, as a Programme Assistant, for two years and got promoted to Programme Administrator to the Area office in Jodhpur. Later I got promoted as Programme Officer, for which I had been looking forward since long. I am really enjoying my time with Sightsavers now. Ranjish is a good friend of mine and he works with the India Regional Office at Mumbai. At present I work with Sightsavers office in Kolkata as Senior Programme Officer.

In addition to all these I have lot of Personal friends. Some of them are my Mentors. Some are friends who are girls. Some online friends. Etc….For listing down the names of all my friends and acquaitances I might require the whole of this website......just kidding.............
Professor Ajit Kumar is one of my best friends from whom I've learned a lot of things. He has been there as my mentor since 1996. I consider him as my elder brother. He is a genius. Eventhough he is specialized in Physical Chemistry, sometimes I have felt that seldom there is any topic about which he doesn't know. He is a good Graphologist, Magician etc.
Biju is one of my good friends in Kerala. He is currently in Bangalore. Eventhough our specializations during graduation were different, we shared a good chemistry. He has a good collection of photographs on his webpage.
I would love to work always. I mean I would prefer doing something creative all the time rather than spending time sitting and watching sops on TV, the Idiot box. That doesn't mean that I don't watch TV at all. If I have nothing else to do I would prefer sleeping.
I believe in the principle “Change is the Only Constant”. And the recent change in my life is that I've got married to Divya, an Electrical & Electronics Engineer from Kanhangad, Kasargod district of Kerala.
