Nature and Behavior :
My friends know me as honest, straightforward , down to earth & trust worthy person.
My outlook is trendy and westernized, but I have my traditional values inculcated so hard in me that, I can never give up on my values, meaning, a hard core \"PURE\" Tam-Brahm girl Id call myself. I mingle with people very easily, I socialize and adapt well and am a very practical and broad minded person.
All I wanna be is everything at once d describe me well. The thing I can least tolerate is inactivity. I have much self will, and the spirit of independence is firmly planted in me. Freedom is a quality I prize very highly. Freedom not only of action but also of thought. I kinda like and prefer cities more, yet am more like, Dil se dilli and Dhadkan se London.
From an astrologers point of view my characteristics exactly sync with the characteristics defined for people of Ashwini Nakshatra.
Thats all about me. I Hope I havent bragged much :P . I might have missed a few things here (although I dont think so ;) ), which you may want to know , you can get to know those later :) .
Thanks for reading, and All the best for your soul-mate search :)
Our daughter is a MBA graduate, currently working for a leading tech firm in US. While being ambitious and driven about her career on one hand, she also shows love, care and concern towards the family. She is a trained Carnatic singer, amateur at playing the keyboard, reads a lot (big fiction fan, also into select genres of non-fiction), has a good sense of humour, is very inquisitive and highly intellectual. She has a modern outlook towards things, however she also follows traditions, customs, and is a god-loving person.
In her own words:
Hello! I see my parents have already done a good job here, but let me see what more I can add. My friends say I am pretty characteristic of my zodiac Leo. If you follow Myers-Briggs, I am an ESTJ personality type. Apart from music and books, I love traveling (bucket list is constantly worked on), arts (get excited about museums) and solving cryptic puzzles (given my work profile is also similar to a Data Scientist). I also like to keep learning / trying new things - for eg., recently joined an Acapella music group.
Regional pet peeves - People who trash talk A.R.Rahman, who call dosa overrated and who associate TamBrahms with thayir saadham / mavadu! If any of that interests you, do reach out. :)
