My son is a central civil services Group A officer working for Govt. of India, earlier he had completed his BTech in IIT Roorkee and subsequently cleared UPSC civil services exam. he is a soft spoken, humble and responsible person.
I was born and brought up in Bengaluru. I did my schooling at Sri Vani High School, Rajajinagar (SSLC: 96.96%) and MES Kishor Kendra PU College, Malleshwaram (PUC: 95%). I studied Computer Science & Engineering at NIT Calicut (B.Tech., 2006-10, CGPA: 8.69, AIEEE SR: 148) and IIT Delhi (M.Tech., 2010-12, CGPA: 8.333, GATE AIR: 143).
My grandfather, parents, uncles and aunts were/are all Government servants. So civil services became my goal naturally. But UPSC proved to be a tough nut to crack. I cleared the Staff Selection Commission's CGLE-2014 (AIR 601) and joined Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India in 2016 as Assistant Section Officer (Group B post, equivalent to the rank of Dy. Tahsildar). I am posted in Bengaluru. It is a ministerial/secretariat job which mostly involves analysis/examination of issues/cases. These day, very few people are fortunate to serve the Government or country directly and it gives me great satisfaction when I accomplish worthy tasks in service of the Government.
As we resided in Rajajinagar/Malleshwaram (the old Bangalore) during my childhood, I got exposed to science, religious and cultural activities. I had learnt carnatic vocal (junior grade) and drawing (junior and senior grade). To this day, I love listening to carnatic music esp. Instrumental music. My summer vacations were spent learning yoga, Veda, Bhagavad Gita, crafts (till say High School) and attending science lectures at Planetarium (when I was in High School). My cherished accomplishments in school are bagging the first prize in Bangalore District Science exhibition, NTSE State Rank 9 and qualifying for the nationals of Astronomy Olympiad.
My work isn't very hectic and timings are fixed. So I get to spend time with my family or to do something interesting. When I'm free, I prefer watching series (sitcoms, drama, political - English) or movies (biography, romance, history, drama – English/Telugu), or reading/listening something that would stimulate my thought (religious, philosophy, psychology, politics and literary fiction). Apart from these, on and off, I jog, do yoga, practice Vipassana meditation, chant mantras, watch tennis. I'm dabbling with the thought of getting back to programming/mathematics and carnatic music as a hobby or interest.
In a nutshell, adjectives like principled, conservative, perseverant, objective, analytical, frank, soft spoken, simple could describe my personality. Please contact my parents if you would like to take things further.
