Whenever i get a chance to learn a new speaking language, first thing i generally learn is how to say “I Love You” in that particular language. 😉
In response to Jason’s BIF, I will answer the following questions:
What inspires you?
One of my favorite question. 🙂 I am inspired by learning new things,interacting with different people from different regions with different backgrounds and cultures. There are few Quotations which have been really insirational for me.
Today is my day. Never think about Past and never worry about Future.
I am an engineer so believe in mathematics which is the most concise and precise way of communicating the ideas and i never believe in long pages of communication.
This moment is not permanant in my life. (I read this sentence whenever i am happy/sad.)
If you give me rice, i will eat it today
but if you tell me how to grow it, I will eat it every day.
If you could be a superhero, who would you be
Wow.. 😛 another interesting and exciting imagination. I am not sure i would want to be a superhero. During my childhood i used to watch SHAKTIMAN (Man with Power). He is a fictional Indian superhero.He follows the morals and ethical values of truth, non-violence. I would really go for it. 😀
In response to an earlier Moshe’s BIF, I will answer the following questions:
What was your dream job as a kid?
To be very honest, i never believe in dreams. I always follow my heart. 😐
I am kinda not answering this question.
What is your favorite place in the world?
I wish I could say, however, I have never really travelled outside of India. Is it too corny to say home? Truly India is a wonderful country.
But Amsterdam is one of my fav places.
What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
The Infosys’ Rural Reach Program (RRP) at Haryana, India on Dec, 2012.
An Initiative taken by Infosys-SPARK Team for gathering of more than 5000 students from approximately 31 schools to develop their interest in education and to help them to choose their career path.
RRP module is targeted at promoting computer awareness and literacy among rural school children. RRP is a one-day computer awareness programme, aimed at students from classes 5 to 7, studying in rural schools, and delivered in the local language.
This gives us the confidence to look at this pool of talent even more aggressively going ahead. Infosys has contributed more than 50,000 trained people to the country, making a concrete difference to the availability of trained manpower in India.
