Anupama Venkatesh

I am a software architect and a mom blessed with 2 wonderful kids. I love reading, writing, gardening, taking long walks with good friends, trying new recipes, and I am a die hard fan of time travel, parallel universe and anything science fiction. I love to write about my childhood experiences as I had an amazing childhood with my extended family and I truly believe that the most important thing in the world is love and family. I also believe in "You educate a woman and you educate a family!" and my articles will reflect my belief in some shape or form.
