Back in Blr and currently looking for new directions, job wise.

Travelled quite a bit, before starting work life and after that too. But mostly south of the Vindhya's. After a short stint in the gulf, and then a longer [but not long enough] stint in the US - both east coast and west coast.

IT pro - IT Infrastructure & networking. Completed my Electronics Engg in Blr in the early 90's.

Finished my BE in 2001 in Computer Science.
The job I do now is no where close to what I learnt then.Initially was always only stuck to C and C++,used to be my fav' dish on the menu.

Currently working on Enterprise technologies in a US based company.
Well to be precise am a Enterprise Solutions Consultant, work completely revolves around providing infrastructure solutions to Data Center hosting companies.

i agree completely with you azmat. most of the cars are on credit. my bro wanted to pick up a porche and had asked me to pick up his bmw but whn i saw instalments remaining i had to refuse it. Anywaz don't need a ride in nyc as public transport is too good.
