Blog It Forward – Gnaneswar Reddy K
Warm Greetings everyone who are here to read my blog..!!
Couple of days back when I wrote my first blog in SAP ABAP Development, I was going through SCN home page and found this beautiful idea of Blog It Forward (#BIF) challenge. The first blog I saw was Blog It Forward – Sneha Jadhav which was just amazing and inspired me to write one.
I was tagged in Sneha’s blog for Blog It Forward challenge Blog It Forward- Sneha Jadhav and I really thank her for adding me into this chain.

My parents named me as Gnaneswar which means “Lord of Knowledge”. Somewhere, I find this name of mine antithetical (Lol) and that’s why I altered it as Ganesh and ask each of my friend and colleague to call me by that name.
Coming to the point, I was born and bought up in Hyderabad city, Telangana (the new state of India). After my graduation in B.E, I went for my Masters at DIT-Ireland.
Due to my tenacious interest in SAP, I came back to India and now, I am working with Mouritech Global Enterprise Solutions-Hyderabad as an SAP Technical Consultant.
Fun Fact about Myself:
I am from a south Indian family. I don’t want to speak about my religion/caste as I prefer being Indian. We speak Telugu which is one of the Indian languages. As I was born and bought up in Hyderabad mostly, I even prefer speaking in typical Hyderabadi Hindi with my friends.
I love to freak out with friends whenever I am free and make sure that each and every weekend doesn’t go waste. I eat, I drink, and I go for drives, Parties, Movies, Travel to new places and make sure to give sufficient and quality time to my parents at home.
I am a music lover. I prefer to listen Trance mostly and yeah, sometimes Bollywood-Hindi movies and Tollywood-Telugu movies songs. Whichever feel it is, I celebrate it with Trance.
I am very much fond of movies too. I see almost each and every good movie in Hollywood, Bollywood & Tollywood. In fact, if I was not into SAP, I might have preferred a career in that Industry.
Fun facts about my City:
“Hyderabad-The Pearl City” is one of those place where you can be what you are. You get delicious food (especially Biryani), freak out parties, tourist places, amazing malls for shopping and last but not least, hospitality from fellow Hyderabadi’s.
Past few years, Hyderabad became one of the major IT Hubs in India. It has all the MNC’s and the IT Campuses. Hyderabad, which is also known as Hi-Tech city has a vast scope for IT industry. Many people from different places and countries visit here and stay here for the purpose of education and employment shows us the quality of services offered here in Hyderabad.
There are a couple of festivals which are celebrated only in Hyderabad (State- Telangana) and nowhere else in India which I want to share with all of you here. They are:
Bathukamma – The unique festival of flowers in Telangana
Bathukamma is a colourful and vibrant festival of Telangana and celebrated by women, with flowers that grow exclusively in each region. This festival is a symbol of Telangana’s cultural identity.
Bathukamma comes during the latter half of monsoon, before the onset of winter. The monsoon rains usually brings plenty of water into the fresh water ponds of Telangana and it is also the time when wild flowers bloom in various vibrant colours all across the uncultivated and barren plains of the region.
Bathukamma is the icon of cultural identity of Telangana.
Bonalu is a Hindu Festival where Goddess Mahankali is worshiped. It is an annual festival celebrated in the twin Cities Hyderabad and Secunderabad and other parts of Telangana state, India.
Bonalu is celebrated usually during Ashada Masam that falls in July/August. Special poojas are performed for goddess Yellamma during the first and last day of the festival. The festival is considered as a form of thanksgiving to theGoddess after the fulfillment of vows. Bonam literally means Meal in Telugu, which is an offering to the Mother Goddess. Women folk in household prepare rice that is cooked along with Milk, Jaggery in a New Earthen or Brass Pot, which is adorned with Neem Leaves, Turmeric and Vermilion. Women carry these pots on their heads and make an offering of Bonam, including Bangles and Saree to the Mother Goddess at Temples. Bonalu involves worship of Kali in her various forms such Mysamma, Pochamma, Yellamma, Dokkalamma, Pedamma, Poleramma, Ankalamma, Maremma, Nookalamma etc.
1.) What is the best lesson your parents taught you?
What you do today, is what you get tomorrow. Just be honest and work hard and give your best.
2.) If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?
BATMAN and its obvious. I just love the series and yeah of course his machines and what not?
3.) If you were not in your current position, what/where would you be and why?
If I was not in this position currently, I would try my fate in Movie Industry. Don’t know exactly why, but there is this small wish of mine that I want to see myself on the big screen. 😉
Answers of the questions which were blog it forwarded to me:

I love to listen Trance music as I already mentioned. Other than that, I prefer writing various blogs whenever I am free. You can check my blog (Non SAP) here :
2.) How I come to know about SCN and What do I most enjoy on SCN?
I still remember this. On my first day of my training, my trainer mentioned about SCN and asked us to join as we get each and every thing we are looking for in SAP.
I enjoy the blogs written by various people here in SCN regarding new and unknown concepts.
3.) What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
The project which I enjoyed most was the one which we did in my graduation. Our team consisted of three people and we chose to go a training institute for the required training.
