Personal a.k.a. My Counter Seems To Be Stuck At 1 a.k.a. Why Am I Not Famous Yet? a.k.a. No One Loves Me

Since you came to this page, it implies that you would like to know more about me. As you must have guessed, my name is Uday; hence the web-site uday.net I happened to get this domain name in 2002, so picked it immediately. I started this site because I had some free time. The main reason was to consolidate all the information I need regularly. Another reason was to have my own email ID @ some domain. I was using free email from Hotmail and I used to get a lot of junk mail.

Ok, little more about myself. I grew up in Bombay (now called Mumbai, although personally I prefer Bombay.) I spent my childhood in Godrej Colony which is one of the best places in the entire Bombay. I completed my schooling in Vikhroli and then in Ruia College. I completed my engineering from College of Engineering, Pune in Instrumentation branch. You may ask "What is Instrumentation?" Well, I cannot answer that here, but there was a very interesting paper from ISA several years ago which explained rather very well how Instrumentation engineers themselves don't understand what it means.

After my graduation, I worked for a great company (L&T, in case you are curious) for almost 5 years. I was planning to work there for the rest of my life, but my manager refused me a transfer to the department I wanted. I would say that was one of the important turning points in my life. So I joined a company in SEEPZ, started coding in C, Visual Basic and then ERP systems. Currently I live in the USA. I used to work as a consultant; now I work as a fulltime employee in a company, spending rest of my time with my family. I am also trying to learn new skills, to be prepared, when eventually US jobs move offshore. I recently read (again) My son's father by Dom Moraes. Who knows, I may write my autobiography. If you think that it not such a bad idea, send me an email.
