Thanks for dropping by. I'm Anuradha Sridharan and been part of the blogging world since 2004. Have a cup of chai !! I'd love to share a few glimpses of my professional and personal life through this blog.
This blog is a collection of experiences I have gathered over many years, like a child collecting sea shells on a sea shore. Just like shells that have different sizes, shapes and colors, every person on this planet has multiple areas of interest. And so do I. There are 5 verbs that describe my interests - read, write, speak, travel and cook.
From my professional work standpoint, I'm an Independent Consultant focused on product management and marketing. I've been part of the software product development space for over a decade, working for both startups and large organizations. I've donned multiple hats so far - database developer, product manager and product marketer. Head over to my LinkedIn profile if you want to know the finer details.
I love public speaking and have spoken in product management focused events and various other forums. Check out this link to know the areas of my interest and details on past speaking engagements.
If there's one thing that I've been consistent at it for more than 10 years, it has to be cooking. Healthy cooking is not just a hobby to me but has evolved into a serious passion over the last 3-4 years. To keep up this passion alive and to create awareness on healthy eating through local foods, I have launched a food catering service named EthnicPalate. To know more about the kind of foods that are on my menu, please visit my FB page and follow me on Instagram.
This blog reflects my interest in writing. Over the last 12 years, I have been writing on various topics that has caught my attention. Head over to the section on "Hand-picked articles" to read some of my posts that I consider worth your time :-)
Though I don't read as much as I would like to, I write reviews and share notes from the books I have read so far. I mostly read non-fiction ; books around behavioral psychology, motivation theories, marketing, startups, building great products, design thinking etc.
I believe in simplicity, minimalistic lifestyle and environment-friendly living. I care deeply about our planet and try my best to stay away from disposable plastic, paper cups and napkins. Would be glad to have conversations around how to build a sustainable lifestyle.
My husband (who has always been supportive of my various interests) and my 4 year old daughter (who's the biggest motivation for me to dive deeper into healthy eating) complete my world.
I guess I have shared enough about me...Thanks for reading this far! :-)
P.S. I idolize Sachin Tendulkar and AR Rahman - both signify excellence, simplicity and humility ; qualities that I highly appreciate in people.
