Default Greetings to all !

Hello everybody !

Joined Team-BHP recently. Glad to be a member of this team.
Age : 53

Basically from Trichur, Kerala - Mumbai born & brought up - did B.Sc. from K J Somaiya College, DERE from Xaviers Inst. of Technology, Mahim.

First job - agriculture for 8 months in my village (family compulsion).
Came back to Mumbai - taught at Xaviers, Mahim for 3 years.
Next started a business in Plastic mould making and injection moulding - with a relative. This ran for about 10 years. The partnership ended and then I freelanced for 5 years.
Later got a good offer from a Pvt. Ltd. company and worked for about 7 years. Jobs handled - development of electronic products, moulds and moulded parts, creatives signages, LEDs etc.. Went to China three times during this period for procurement work.
Then the traffic of Mumbai was getting too much for comfort - a journey of 4 hours for a duty of 8 hours. So requested by brother-in-law in Pune to find a job for me there. So, now in Pune since 1 year. Dabbling in poultry equipments and accessories, automisation, PET straps, Glass Beads, Ceramic Beads etc..

Sorry for the long story from a Jack of all Trades/Master of none

I learned driving in a Fiat (1976) Italian model, owned a Zen previously and now a WagonR.

That's it - so long for now.

Thomas

Hello Thomman sir,

Welcome to T-Bhp and enjoy your stay here. I too learned driving in a Fiat, but it was a Premier Padmini, 1968 model, which was owned by my grand-dad.

Welcome aboard and see you around.

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome!

I am from kanjany - about 13kms from Trichur town.
Manalur and Anthikkad are neighbouring villages.
My father's youngest brother's family is there in the "tharavadu".
We go every year for family visit - no property there.

I assume you may be from southern kerala.. achchaaya

Thalkkaalam nirthunnu.

See you around.

Thomman
