I hail from a village called Tiruvisanallur(8 miles from kumbakonam
enroute to mayiladuthurai). My Grandfather,Periappa and Periamma still live
there. I was born in Manadavelipakkam,Madras. My father was born and brought
up in a village called tirumangalakudi(2miles from Suriyanarkoil and 8 miles
from tiruvisanallur). During my early days I was in Thanjavur, kUmbakonam,
mayavaram till my 3rd standard. Then my father shifted to madras and I have
been there since.
I had my schooling at P.S.Sr.Sec.School, Mylapore, Madras from 4th to
12th. The upanayanam function took place when i was studying in my 8th
standard. After that I did Vedaadhyenam from my family saatrigal for 4 years.
I did my bachelors in mechanical engineering from BITS,Pilani.
During this time, I had the oppurtunity to get involved in attending cultural
training camps in kanchipuram under the auspices of Sri Jayendra Saraswati
Swamigal and Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal of the Kamakoti
I worked for a year in TVS Suzuki, Hosur as a graduate engineering
trainee at the end of which I came to the US for my education. I was in Univ
of maryland for a semester after which I transferred to Purdue. I am
currently in the Masters program in Industrial Engineering at Purdue.
I have been exposed to the different aspects of Santana dharma
mainly due to association with people of similar interests and because of my
family who are very religious and orthodox, I hope to really learn and
appreciate AdiSankara's Works and advaita vedAntam.
Looking forward to ur response
