Blog it forward – Jagathshree Iyer

Dear all! 🙂

First of all, I thank Jitendra Kansal who blog forwarded me through Blog It Forward – Jitendra Kansal. This is Jagathshree and I am writing my first blog ever 😉   It is an honor that I have begun it in such a wonderful space and my thanks to SCN 😳 .

About myself:

Well, people usually find my name difficult to pronounce, so I am used to being called by different nick names ( Jag, Jagath, Jaggy etc., 😆 ). And as you can see that my blog already has so many smileys, I am a cheerful and a jovial person. After completing my schooling in different states in India, I completed B.Tech from Hindustan University, Chennai in 2012. I was waiting for my joining in an IT giant in 2012, when I got selected in Globalsoft Solutions, an SAP consultancy firm in Chennai. Thus, here I am, into the world of SAP 🙂 and I consider myself very fortunate 😳 . Currently, I am working in CRM domain.

My mother India:

Though there are plenty of things to talk about my nation, some key facts are:

  • The Balaji temple, Tirupathi, is the busiest pilgrimage centers in the world
  • India has the most number of vegetarians in the world.
  • 1961 census recognized 1652 individual mother tongues in India.

        According to the most recent census, 29 languages have more than a million native speakers,

        60 have more than 100,000, 122 have more than 10,000.

  • Rakshabandan is a unique festival when a sister ties a rakhi or holy thread – a colorful band on her brother’s wrist,

        while, through a gift, the brother vows to look after her .

  • Cow is considered as a sacred animal and is worshiped.

My native – Chennai city:

Chennai is the capital of Tamil Nadu, the fourth most populous metropolitan city in India and 31st largest urban area in the world.

Some of the noted features:

1. Marina Beach:

A natural urban beach along the Bay of Bengal, Marina is the world’s second longest of its kind.

People usually enjoy having hot snacks called ‘Bhajji’ here.


2. Kathipara Flyover:

It is a major landmark in Chennai and also the largest cloverleaf flyover in Asia.


3. Guindy National Park:

It is one of the few national parks situated inside a city


In response to questions posed by Jitendra Kansal 🙂

1. What makes me smile/laugh?

I smile the moment somebody does or when some one merely holds a camera in front of me 😛 😉

2. Had I not been in software, where would I have been?

In a school, wearing a saree and teaching Maths and English 🙂

3. What is the craziest thing that I would have done in my life?

I do not know if it is the craziest. But I still cherish this incident 😆

When I was five years old, I had taken part in a fancy dress competition in school for annual day celebrations and I had chosen to be a doctor.

My parents had taught me a few lines to speak which I had rehearsed for days. That day, I boarded the stage and introduced myself boldly.

But suddenly, I started singing a devotional song on Lord Krishna, for no reason. The entire crowd began to laugh and I thought they were cheering me 😆

Probably, that day proved that I would never be a doctor in my life 😛 though I still sing 😉

Answers to a few general questions:

Who inspires me the most?

Any new thing that enters my life, motivates and inspires me !

What do I most enjoy in SCN?

I love the discussion forums and the blogs 😘 .

What, according to me, is the most fascinating invention/discovery?

I find air planes really fascinating and to me, they are one of the best inventions 😳 .

Blog Forward:

  • Hi Jagathshree,

    Glad to know about you, I also had to chennai during my training period and it was not bad at all as people used to say that it is too dificult to survive in Chennai specially for north Indians(like me) but see i survived and commenting on ur blog ..;)

    Enjoyed reading it, highlights of Chennai are well described 🙂 .

    • Hi Prerna

      Glad to know that you enjoyed your stay in Chennai and also reading my blog. You are right there is a misconception regarding the place 😉

      Thanks & Regards


  • Hey,

    Nice Blog , Good to know about you..

    i was not in good mood when i was reading this, but you make me laugh ..

    "I started singing a devotional song on Lord Krishna, for no reason. The entire crowd began to laugh and I thought they were cheering me"  .. hahahah.. 😀


  • Hi Jagathshree,

    Nicely written Blog.

    Welcome to BIF. 🙂

    Its very informative regarding Chennai and definitely regarding India. 🙂

    The best part of your Blog is    "I started singing a devotional song on Lord Krishna, for no reason. The entire crowd began to laugh and I thought they were cheering me" .......I seriously can imagine the scene when u became a doctor and started singing and then the reaction of crowd. 😉

    Keep up the good work. 🙂

    Best of Luck..



  • Hello Jagathshree.

    Like Sara I can't really believe that this is your first blog! I really enjoyed it, you have a nice, light, bubbly way to write IMO. 😀

    I loved your childhood anecdote as well, that made me grin. *g* And the questions you put up for the people you blogged forward to sound really interesting! I'm looking forward to the answers.

    Since Indian names are pretty difficult (especially for us western people 😀 ), could you write how your name would be pronounced? Even in my head I get it all messed up I think. 😳



    • Hi Steffi

      Thank you very much for the feedback. I understand, my name sounds new even to the people of my own state 😆 . My name is - 'jag' as you pronounce 'jug', 'ath' as in wrath, and finally 'shree' - ee in chEEse  😛 Hope that helps 😉



  • Hi Jagathshree,

    Good Evening,

    I really dont know about this.

    Major landmark in Chennai and also the largest cloverleaf flyover in Asia.

    Thanks for sharing about you and your experience. I like the way you explained about Chennai!

    I appreciate. 🙂
