About Me & my place:

I born and bought up from a town called kadapa which is in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. I am friendly, easy going and open to world. I seem to be a quiet person, but if anyone makes me talk I can enjoy a good conversation.

I would like to introduce myself as a Hyderabadi – from the city which offers a fascinating panorama of the past, with a richly mixed cultural and historical tradition spanning 400 colorful years. It is also well known for its pearls and has been called a “City of Pearls”. There are many things about Hyderabad but below are the some of the few snaps.

Intrests / hobbies:

I love nature so I would like to roam places with my friends and especially Pune in monsoon is awesome. I like to play games but since a long time not able to deal out time so opted for gym. It makes me happy if my day starts with gym. I believe Music has a special power to move us and stir our emotions. A.R. Rahman perhaps one of India’s greatest composers is my favorite musician.

My Professional Career:

At first I got opportunity to work on java and web services and after completion of the project I got the opportunity to work on SAP with Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories. It gave me a good chance to work closely with client and got good knowledge on technology.  Later I moved to Infosys Ltd where I am currently working with a major global financial services provider. I must thank god because I am so lucky that wherever I worked till now got admirable team and a wonderful experience. This keeps me always motivated and gets pleasure from work.

My SCN experience:

I follow SCN space quite rarely especially when I stuck at something . I really liked the event gamification and Data Geek Challenge which kept me engaged for some time, thanks to SCN. I believe SCN is a great place for all to improve our knowledge.

I don’t want to say anything about Pune and Infosys because Abhijeet and Jithendra already mentioned in their BIF’s.

In response to questions asked by Abhijeet in Blog It Forward – Abhijeet Mukkawar:

1.     1. One thing you like about your job the most.

I like working with team at my job. The teamwork that must be put in by all employees to get the job done and of course, learning new things.

2.     2.  Given a chance to change one thing in your life, what it would be ?

Like Popeye said I am What I am . I have no regrets about the choices I have made in life whether good or bad because each one has helped mould the person I am today.

3.     3.  What makes you laugh?

                Anything – if it is a comedy movie / funny jokes and sometimes funny posts from Facebook will make me laugh.

I’d like to blog it forward to the following people and would like to hear answers for the below questions.

      Hi Pradeep,

      Welcome to SCN BIF Club! 🙂

      1. Your idea of perfect day ?


      Spend time with my son always. Every second, I think about that. Nothing big idea as of now.

      2. Tell me craziest thing that you have done in your life ?


      Go to purple haze pub every week with my close friends to listen upbeat music, dance and relax. But I don't drink. 🙂

      3. If earth is invaded with aliens, who (super heroes) would be in your team ?


      Rajinikanth is always my super hero. I cannot compare any super hero in this universe other than Rajinikanth.


      Thanks for sharing about you and your experience.


      Regards,

      Hari Suseelan

      Beautiful pictures and thank you for the nice blog-it-forward.

      I can't believe the Charminar was built in 1591 - I can't imagine the amount of engineering and effort.

      Cheers,

      Tammy

      Hi Pradeep,

      Welcome to BIF.

      I started my professional life at Hyderabad. Those days were challenging to get a job. I can still remember those struggling days. If I remember now, it is a great example. I always love Hyderabad, because it has taught me many lessons in my life. I could go back to 15 years by seeing your photos. Fantastic they are 🙂

      All the best.

      Kind Regards,

      Ravi
