Our first daughter is a very pleasant, charming, energetic, bubbly and happy character. She radiates joy and positive energy. She is very caring, compassionate and affectionate. She has similar expectations from others. She is often ruled more by her heart than her head. She is at ease interacting with people of all age groups and can easily establish a sense of connection, be it with kids or grand-parents.
Although she has spent most of her childhood and growing up years in Singapore, she has grown up with excellent personal values and strong connection to our tradition, culture and practices. She has strong spiritual inclination and as family our popular annual vacation is often visiting temples. She is very devoted to Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva and Lord Venkateswara.
She is academically very accomplished. She graduated with a double degree in Business & Finance (with summa cum laude - Highest academic honour conferred by the University). She has also completed CFA (all 3 levels) and CAIA. She currently works for a reputed Global Strategy Consulting firm in Singapore. Prior to this she was with an Investment Bank. She has aspirations to grow and do well in her career. Despite her professional aspirations, she is very much a home loving person. She has balanced perspective about work and personal life. Spending time with family, helping with household work, watching movies during weekends and cooking is something that she relishes. She is an excellent cook and loves to experiment with a variety of Indian vegetarian recipes. She is a strict vegetarian with clean habits and has uncompromising reciprocal expectation on this matter from her future partner. Although she is ambitious and progressive in her thinking, she has a conservative interior and cherishes our traditional values and culture. Also, she has a natural talent for teaching and explaining concepts clearly. She is also endowed with strong math skills and musical intelligence. She is an excellent singer and can render a wide repertoire of songs (devotional, light classical, film melodies). She has been learning music from the age of 6 and was trained for nearly 8 years by teachers proficient in Carnatic and Hindustani music. She is never bored of listening to music across genres (usually Tamil / Malayalam / Hindi/ Punjabi songs) or watching multi-lingual movies (English, Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, and Malayalam). She is also at ease with public speaking.
I have made this profile on behalf of my daughter. She is currently working as a consultant in private sector, after having completed her master's degree. We come from an upper middle class, nuclear family with moderate values presently living in Singapore.
People describe her as intelligent, outgoing, modest, responsible and obedient. Her hobbies and interests are pets and cooking.
This profile is being managed by my parents and me.
I have been brought up in Bombay..I finished my engineering in BITS Pilani, Goa and my PGDM at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta.
I hail from an open-minded, nuclear family - my dad retired after 35 years of experience from the liquor industry as Regional Director of Middle East, Africa and Asia of Diageo (however, I do not drink). My mom is a house wife, and has been tutoring students in higher Mathematics for the last 20 years.
I am with a top-tier consulting firm in Singapore..
Apart from my work being very hectic, I do enjoy watching movies. I am a huge fan of Manchester United FC and like traveling (whenever time permits)
My son was brought up in Dubai, and had his education in Dubai and later his Bachelor and Masters education in Australia. He is currently employed in Singapore in a leading Financial consultancy firm as a consultant.
Here's a small excerpt from Sathvik about himself...
To summarize myself in one line: A football enthusiast, an engineer turned management consultant, who is excited by traveling and meeting new people
As someone who has lived in six countries, I have enjoyed exposure to different cultures and developed a network of colleagues, friends and mentors from around the world. My belief system works on the ALPS approach â€“ Aspiration, Luck, Passion, Sincerity, all of which have been crucial in my professional and personal journey thus far.
In terms of my educational background, I completed my high school in Dubai, UAE. Thereafter, I graduated with a B.Eng. (Hons) in Chemical Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS), which included a one year work study program at University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). After 4 years of work experience with Rolls-Royce, I decided to embark on a full-time MBA at HEC Paris.
Having recently graduated as an MBA, I will be starting as a management consultant soon at McKinsey Asia, based in Indonesia. Although the base is Indonesia, considering the assignment potential, I am flexible to be based out of Singapore, if needed, depending on mutual convenience.
My hobbies are football, photography, traveling and solving puzzles. I am fluent with English, Hindi and Tamil and I have picked up intermediate French during my time in France.
What makes me happy in my professional life? The ability to create an impact and develop myself on a daily basis.
What makes me happy in my personal life? The quality time spent chilling with my parents, close relatives and friends.
What am I looking for in a partner?
Someone with strong family-backed cultural values, a mission to live for and interest to adapt / relocate to Indonesia or potentially any other locations in the future. I would be happy to share further about me while knowing more about you :)
Gokul is simple, affectionate and enjoys spending time with family. In spite of having lived abroad for the past decade, he makes it a point to visit family frequently.
He has lived and worked in quite a few countries - Germany, Japan, UK and Spain - appreciates varied cultures, is easy-going and broad-minded.
He loves travelling - listening to classical music - and likes anything vegetarian - especially South Indian.
