Stop here for a while - grab a cuppa chai or coffee and let's get to know each other. Get to  know  the K1 and K2 in my life and the adventures and journeys I am having with work, motherhood - living, loving and learning.


  1. Hi Meenakshi, Your writing is beautiful. And you are very successful at work as well. Would you kindly share what major you took in college? I have twin girls who just finish their freshman in high school. Both are good with literature and one of them actually like programing after a whole year learning/taking the JAVA class at school. They don't know what they want to study when they go to college and I thought I would explore and let them know of the options that they have that are best suitable with their strength.

    1. Hi Laura, Thanks for the high words of praises. I am a big proponent of STEAM (with a focus on the A)....my major in college was Sociology and Psychology. I have two MBAs - one from India in Marketing and Organizational Behavior and another one from George Washington University in International Finance and Supply Chain Management. I learnt about Technology along the way...( I did Oracle Implementation Projects in the initial stages of my career in Consulting followed by 18 years in Product Management). Good Luck to your daughters - they will have an amazing life and career I am sure. Best Wishes, Meenakshi
