  1. Guru


I'm currently working in Infineon Technologies Ltd(from the past 1 month). Previously I was working in Infosys(for 2yrs). i'm a native of Bangalore and I live in Bangalore (Vijayanagar). My passions are trekking, swimming, cycling and running marathons. Used to do a lot of cycling during my student life. After that, it has reduced a lot(due to company transport facility). Have been to quite a few places around Bangalore by Cycle. But the max was only about 140kms(the package also had trekking) in a day. Waiting eagerly to push the limits.
