Namaste. My name is Suhas and I am one of the founding team members behind this. Briefly my story is thus – I was born in 1971 when my parents were settled in Pune, where I did most of my education. I was pretty poor in studies early school, but mysteriously improved towards high school, eventually getting a merit seat in Government College of Engineering Pune. The trend continued as I had a university rank by the time I graduated. I got selected to the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. From there I launched my career as a electronic design engineer in the semiconductor industry, with my first job in Texas Instruments, a niche technical job. I totally drowned in it for 7 yrs, moving up the technical ladder, many ideas and 6 US patents to credit and few. papers in leading international conferences as well. From here I moved to a more engineer- manager kind of role, starting VLSI teams for multiple companies, and this time rising up the management ladder up to a Director role in an MNC. My last company where I worked full time was Broadcom. At that time, I moved out because I wanted to do something I believed in, and not just for money's sake.
My other interest is yoga, health and spirituality. I started yoga early, not really out of choice :) but now after 30 odd years I am getting to like it. In high school was fascinated by football, but it did not translate to being that good at it. That I almost got selected to our college football team is my claim to fame. I do consult in my engineering profession for my bread and butter.
Namaste. My name is Kavitha and I too am one of the founding members behind this. I am an in and out a Bangalorite, never having moved out except for brief trips on the job. Born in 1978, since a young child, I had been very much interested in crafts and spent hours and hours doing all kinds of stuff. Other than the regular schooling, I was pushed into and got deeply interested in Bharatnatyam, spending 11 long years training and doing shows. Eventually, my parents put a stop believing it was affecting my studies :(. I did do well, securing a state rank in SSC, but I believe I would have done so even if I had continued my dancing :). From then on moved to being an electronics Engineer at BIT.. But with the crowd I landed a software job at Wipro for 6 yrs. Then moved as a project lead to Covansys, which was taken over by CSC. After spending time in the corporate world for 8 yrs, I decided to quit when I had my first child. I just had to spend time with her :)
After two children and a gap of 7 yrs, I took up a years teaching assignment at Prakriya Green Wisdom school. It was a very good all round experience, and I am richer in my ability to understand and teach children for it. Even prior to that I used to take craft classes for children (where we first used the name chilli pilli makkla koota :), and conduct summer camps. I also have an interest in fitness and have taken aerobics classes on and off. In the last few years I have been regularly attending classical music classes and I enjoy spending time listening to and practicing classical songs. I also love doing handicrafts, designer cloth bags and quilling earrings being my specialty.
