My daughter is an Electrical Engineer who is working in an Engineering firm in Toronto. She is currently on leave as she is pursuing her Masters in Engineering from University of Toronto, Canada. We are from kerala but currently settled in Canada.
My name is Neha Shrikant Karkhanis and I am working as a Engineer in Pune city - Non IT in the Private sector. I have completed my BE. I grew up in a Upper middle class, Nuclear family with Moderate values.
A few adjectives to describe me would be: simple, honest, hardworking and ambitious
I performed decently in school and undergrad; came to the US in 2012 for grad school; graduated in 2015 with a masters degree; got a job in a manufacturing R&D start-up in Buffalo, NY and have been working there for the last 3+ years. I have recently accepted a new job offer back home in India and will be moving to Pune sometime mid this year.
The last 6 years in states away from family and with a lot of Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½meÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ time I have had the opportunity to be more self-aware as well as appreciative of all the little things in life. I am a pseudo introvert with a small but tight group of friends. I derive all my strength from family and I am very close to them. My father is an entrepreneur and my mother is a doctor; I have two younger sisters. We all lead affluent lives today, but we have been brought up with strong middle-class roots as our parents transitioned through being employees themselves with 9 to 5 jobs to being employers today within the last 20 years.
As I am looking to start the next phase in life, I am not looking for someone who can take care of me or fend for family single-handedly (typical stereotypes), but someone who believes in partnership and concept of family; someone who appreciates the flaws in themselves as well as me but is willing to work around it.
