Born and lived:  In India.

Early life:  I spent my childhood in my village where I did my schooling.  My village got electricity when I was in my 10th Standard.  My father was a Teacher in the school which helped me in my academics.  We were a large but happy family of 8 (my parents, and six children).  I used to be very unconventional and adventurous, always wanting to do what my father restricted me from indulging in.  I did my graduation in Science (Physics, Maths and Chemistry) in a town close to my village and my post-graduation in Library & Information Science from the University of Mysore, Mysore.

Professional career and activities:  In a span of eight years after my post graduation, I worked as a Librarian in four different institutions before promoting Informatics in 1980.  My first job as a Librarian was in a large College Library.  My second job was in a premier academic and research Institute in Bangalore (Indian Institute of Science) where I worked as Information Assistant to a Professor.  From there I moved on to a company then called Smith Kline & French, Bangalore, as their first Librarian in their Indian operation.  My last job was in Hindustan Machine Tools Ltd., Bangalore, as a Documentation Officer.

In my spare time:  Got very little spare time until now.  But love reading and writing, watching movies and travelling.

Favorite books:  My reading interests are wide and varied.  Favourite authors include Bertrand Russell, Charles Dickens, Ayn Rand and many Indian Authors like R. K. Narayan.

Pet peeves:  Nothing.

Philosophy:  Live and Let Live.

Most memorable career achievement:  Launching my dream product, J-Gate.

Goal I hope to achieve five years from now:  Diversify and expand Informatics into non-library centric information business and build a strong global presence.
