Its a great initiative and a good way to know the people here in SCN.
I am a SAP ABAP Consultant working in Wipro Technologies. My association with the world of SAP has been for the last 6 years and few months. Its been a great experience so far 🙂 . I am from Kolkata or Calcutta, India. I was born and brought up in the city. I live here with my family and for last 6 years working for Wipro in their office based in Saltlake. Been a member of SCN from times when it was called SDN 🙂 recently became more active in the space as I finally found a lot more of spare time to do so and the got hooked to it (maybe its gamefication syndrome ).
About my Country:
As it has already been told many times here 🙂 I would not like to reiterate the same. But the country is absolutely incredible in its beauty, culture, people and the sheer diversity in many varied aspects. Its a subcontinent so as to say. I love it and I take pride that it is my motherland. I would recommend all to visit the country once in a lifetime they will be amazed by the experiences of it. Would think the below link by the tourism department sums up few experiences that’s just great
About my city:
Well Calcutta or Kolkata as it is called now is a large city that’s more that 300 years old. It was the capital of the erstwhile British India. It is situated on the banks of the Hoogly river, a dis-tributary of Ganges.
The city is vibrant. Its one of the 4 largest cities of India. Its a seat of culture and is also called the cultural capital of India. The weather here is very hot and humid in summer, a reasonably cool but moist monsoon and a very pleasant winter.
Over the last few centuries the city has been a major centre of education, trade and industry in the eastern part of India. Some legendary figures who are associated often with the city are Jagadish Chandra Bose, Satyandranath Bose, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Teresa, Satyajit Ray, Amartya Sen and Sourav Ganguly and many more. The state to which the city belongs is now known as West Bengal, a part of the region better known as Bengal. The most common language spoken locally here in Bengali. It is one of the 22 official languages of India 🙂 .
The city is also famous for its bengali cuisine, some of the most delicious food and sweets are attributed to the regions cuisine. To mention a few there are Rosogollas, Misti Doi.
The regions basic dishes comprises of fish. A meal of Fish Gravy and Rice is the most common here.
Questions I was asked:
1) What makes you smile/laugh?
Company of good old friends and a place to hangout and catch up on life. 🙂 & sometimes as I am a film buff a nice Charlie Chaplin movie, where action speaks louder that words in its true sense.
2) Had you not been into software at all, where would you have been?
Well, this I had never given much of a thought but maybe professional photography or sports considering the love of cricket and Sachin, Sourav & Dravid. 🙂
3) What is the craziest thing you would have done in your life?
Well not yet accomplished but intend to go skydiving with friends some day 🙂
4) What is your best moment in life?
The best moment…nah I guess all the moments are unique and beautiful in its own way, So dont want to spoil others by naming a few as best 🙂
5) How did you get into SAP technology?
Bit of a fate I guess got campus recruited and trained in SAP by my present company as they were ramping up the SAP team.
