A quiet, contented soul at the best of times, I grew up
in the wonderful city of Trivandrum
in Kerala, India, where my life was
by a close-knit family and some great teachers,
especially at Loyola School.
Life then meandered through a few eventful years at the College of Engineering, Trivandrum and a whirlwind
year in Bombay, India's busiest metropolis. Then, some quirk of fate
made me a graduate student at Syracuse
University, Syracuse, NY, USA,
where I earned a Master's degree in
Electrical Engineering and had a lot of fun with a bunch of
incredible friends. Apart from
varied interests such as literature,
carnatic music, politics and
economics, I did strange stuff like
Fiber Optics, Optical Communication Networks and Satellite
Communications!! I worked in the Electro-Optics Laboratory
University, trying unsuccessfully to con my advisors Dr. Philipp
Kornreich and Dr.
Nicholson, two of
the sharpest minds in the field of Electro-Optics! After they kicked
me out, I found refuge in the Wireless Networks Group at Lucent
Technologies in Naperville,
IL, a suburb of big, bad Chicago. Life since
then has been a mix of frequent flier miles, radio frequency engineering
and solitary musings on the state of the universe!
