I am Krishna and I currently live in Bangalore.
I have been interested in planning, productivity and time management related topics, right from my middle school.
Over the years, this expanded to a journey of continuous improvement and learning from others and examining of how I can live my life in a better way. Better for myself and for the people I care.
These learnings have helped me a lot, no doubt. I have been looking for ways to share the same with the larger community of people around me and learn more and more. And that is the genesis of this blog 'New Indian Woman' and many more things to come…
And if you are wanting to know more about my background. I come from a small town called Alleppey(now Alappuzha, famous for its backwaters), in Kerala. My mother tongue is Tamil. On the academic front, I have done Engineering in Computer Science and then worked in the new IT industry. I started as a software developer, worked many roles in a leading IT organization. When I was performing the role of General Manager, I decided to leave the corporate world and explore.
This led me to start volunteering for different causes . During this period, I have
been a volunteer with NGOs and citizen groups involved in a range of activities from structuring and managing a variety of programs, translating ideas to project opportunities, interacting with partner organisations to facilitate IT implementation, creating visibility of organisation’s operations towards stakeholder agencies and so on.
been a visiting faculty for Undergraduate students at a University for Data Management course .
engaged at my children’s school for multiple activities including implementation of new library software using open source tools
helped with teaching a Sewing course for Undergraduates at a University as part of their Creative Expressions programme
launched my own podcast(yes, available in this site)
pursued my hobbies - the ever common reading and of course, you guessed it right, sewing!
My learning s come from the 2 decades in the IT world (after a simple small town upbringing), my current explorations and interactions with a wide variety of people from all backgrounds . My learning also come from being a mother to a young adult daughter and teenage son.
I look forward to you having a wonderful time reading the blogs and participating in the journey of the 'New Indian Woman'
