Blog it forward: Thanga Prakash Thanga Raj
Welcome all to my BIF.
First of all thanks to Suseelan Hari for introducing me to the BIF community and inspiring me to write a blog. I am not a blogger, so please provide your valuable comments after reading it. Don’t stop here, kindly go ahead and read about me.
Thanks to xMoshe Naveh (Old Acct) for making this initiative and good place for all SCN community peoples to connect and share.
Who am I?
My name is Thanga Prakash, meaning is Thanga means Gold and Prakash means glow. My friends and family call me as Thanga, Gold Prakash, Thangam, TP. I am from a small town called Tiruchengode, in Tamil Nadu, India. 🙂
About my native:
My native Tiruchengode is well known for Ardhanareeswarar hill temple (one of the 64 manifestations of Lord Shiva, representing the unity of Shiva and Parvati). Below is the pic of this temple.
Apart from temple it has the pride of having the country’s first Gandhi Ashram a tribute to our nation’s great leader Mahatma Gandhi.
It can be called “The Borewell Hub of India” as it manufactures the largest number of Borewell Vehicles operated in India.
My interests are Cricket, Dancing, spending time friends. As you can guess from my interests, yes I am a die hard fan of Sachin Tendulkar and in terms of dance, not a professional dancer. 😆
Whenever I find leisure time, I watch movies and listen to songs, mostly Academy Award winner, A.R.Rahman songs. 😎
“Music is the one which wakes you up, makes you think and heals you”.
I like to be friends with people from different culture and geography.
People say that I have a good smile, my fact about smile is “It is not contagious, a smile can make (m)any things happen in this world” 😛
My first prize…
Graduation day… 🙂 The day I was officially declared as an Engineer.
With friends in Matheran 🙂
I have done schooling in my hometown and moved to a very big city on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal, which has the world’s second longest beach (Chennai) for pursuing my Bachelor degree in Petroleum engineering, in Anna University which has been ranked 9th best University in India. 🙂
I guess you would be wondering by now, 😕 what I am doing in IT after pursuing degree in Petroleum engineering. Actually my aim was to become a Cardiologist, because of some situations I ended up in engineering and then in IT and fortunately into SAP.
I was on Cloud nine on May 2011, which was the day I got an opportunity to join in a corporation referred to as BIG BLUE which is IBM. 🙂 I joined as a Graduate Hire, trained in SAP – ABAP Application Developer. I have a work experience of 2.5 years so far.
I am so happy to be a part of SCN community and big thanks to the founders of the community, this is place where I learned ABAP and still learning a lot more new things.
My favourite quotes:
A.R.Rahman was asked at his award function?
“Which is your best music?”
he replied :
“My next music”
So let ur aim be better than before.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
Smile like a baby, life is meant to be enjoyed, so enjoy everyday like your last day.
Thanks guys for going through my Blog.. Enjoy the day.
