Smile just took delivery of my lamborghini gallardo

was just kidding with the subject to get you peeps to read my intro

Hi All,

I am a 26 yr old (though i look like I am 27) currently living/working in Bangalore. I have been blabbering my 2 cents (thats 0.8 INR) on various threads for almost a month now, so thought I'll introduce myself before I am promoted from newbie to bhpian (2-3 more posts to go).

I am an information security specialist (firewalls, ethical hacking, internet security if any of that makes sense) and currently working for this MNC on whose devices most of the internet runs worldwide. In the past I have worked for the worlds largest phone maker and that 4 billion dollar hindustan computer mnc whose ads we see on tv these days. Will gift my imaginary lambo to anyone who guesses the above 3 places of work hehe

I remember my grandma telling me, when I was 9, that I will grow up to be associated with the auto industry, as I had a huge collection of matchbox and hotwheel cars. Well she was somewhat right, I grew upto own a car (smiley), its a santro xing erlx with a catback exhaust and some ICE. Seriously if it wasn't for the IT boom, when I passed out of engineering, I would have been in the auto industry (no i dont mean auto rickshaw!!)

I was born and brought up in Bombay, schooled in St. Annes, Orlem, Malad. I never had to travel by bombay locals as we moved to Pune when I was 16, which is where I did my colleging (wadias) and electronics engineering (bvp).

My interests are cars, computers (security/networking and occasional hobby of coding in C), bodybuilding (almost make it to gym thrice a week), martial arts (stopped short of a black belt, now on my own), music (lotsa rock and hiphop, but then anything that sounds good).

Will meet some of you'll on the tbhp blore-chennai meet. Hope to see the others in person someday, till then tbhp forum it is, an awesome place to know all about things on wheels. Tbhp rocks

Cheers,
j

I would like thank iraghava, mclaren1885, Jaggu, Ricky_63, speedmiester, rjstyles69, moralfibre and anyone else who will or wont fall for the subject and welcome me (there thats a dream come true - a thank you speech, awards ishtyle, forgot to mention my parents, friends and god and lastly my company for providing me free unrestricted internet at work and home)

Moralfibre - you can start imagining about that lambo right away - its all yours from now - I'll move on to imagining about ferrari enzo

Mclaren - whats your number, will sms you, don't wanna flood your pm inbox - i did post my number on the bangy meet thread though. One fine day when i buy a cheap 20 yr old lambo, I will try and fool you again, till then you remain "the unfooled one"

And guys I am already addicted like crazy to this forum, wild dogs and hottie women wouldn't drag me away from this thread, ok maybe those will, but nothing else!!

Welcome Jassi,
Let me guess
You work for Cisco?
MNC is HCL probably, and the phone maker is Nokia, or Motorola?

Cool

Tsk - you can share the lambo with moralfibre unless you cheated and copied his answers

Nimz - lets leave it at the fact that I am an infosec consultant

thanks for the welcome tsk and nimz!!
