I am Murali, born w..a..y...b...a...c..k.. in 1969 in Andhra Pradesh, India.I did my primary schooling in a village called Kaikalur, which is the second biggest oil and natural gas base for ONGC in India now.
I migrated to Vijayawada in 1982 and joined my 9th class there and continued my studies in Vijayawada up to B.Sc. Ohh by the way I was University Ranker in my B.Sc. ( Don't tell any one .... it was 10th Rank !!! okay okay ...but still ten is good out of 125 colleges and 6000 students.... right !! ).
I joined M.Sc., Physics with specialization in electronics in Andhra University Vizag in 1989. It was like a paradise on earth. If you have not seen that place.. then you must see that atleast once. The other place you should see is manas sarovar in Himalayas. I enjoyed more and studied less in A.U. but still managed to come out with flying colors ( Shhh.... don't ask how !! That's my little secret !!! )
Then I did my M.Phil and Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics in the University of Hyderabad, India during 1992-1997. I was course topper in M.Phil. and GATE and CSIR Fellow in Ph.D. For few months I also worked as Faculty in the department of computer science in UoHyd on a term appointment.
After my schooling, I joined Tata Consultancy Services in India, 1998-2001 and right now I work for Sun Microsystems in California, USA.
is Sujatha and I have two kids, Aditya and Manasa. Adi goes to
pre-school and Manasa is very busy learning the art of munching
the first foods. She is a sweet 7 months old.
That is all about me !!!
