Manili Mohankumar

Long long ago so long born and brought up in TamilNadu. Typical Geminian[Geminians are preppie and mod, colorful and exciting.] and my papa stamped me with the name called “Malini Mohan Kumar” and my family and friends kept short name and calls me “Mali” but in my profession I am better known as “Malini”.

Right now I am working in Hyderabad as Project Manager in IT Software Service Oriented company. Till my college days I used to take part in all sports and cultural activities and won many individual/Team awards. I would describe myself as someone who is fun-loving, open, adaptable, caring, thoughtful, honest person who enjoys life and try to see the positive in everything. I am very outgoing and socially orientated who enjoys being active and interactive. I enjoy life and laugh a lot and make others laugh too.I like  to spend in the net explore places, culture, technology and few interesting things.I like..I like..think I like almost everything in my life. I truly respect and believe all my close friends and family members. My soul mate is the core support structure of my life.

Today I can see and hear what’s happening in other part of world and connect with their culture. All these things we never had before. Emails are replaced our letters and chats are replaced our face to face interactions. Changes are happening just like that but how to take advantage and control of it? Especially these technologies are having more impact on our kids – 2030 how would they be? I am not against in going advance in technology but what I see is that people are turning to be penny-wise and pound foolish.

Ans.:  “Share your valuable information with Honest” – Being honest is like being pregnant or alive. You either are, or you’re not. There is no half way, no mostly, about any of those things isn’t the same way you should share your views, feelings, thoughts, information, your joy, your sad and your life? I strongly believe that we should  because you blog will be read by millions of strangers across the world so dig into yourself, your life, and the things you are passionate about and then share them never mind whether it’s good or bad.
