Though I have won numerous art and painting competitions all through my school and college, this is something special, because I won this after becoming a young mother of super smart kid.
In 2014, while I was working in GE Healthcare as a Senior Design Engineer, they practiced a theme of "Simplication" for the whole year. For gifting the employees with a coffee mug, they had a quick logo design contest, in which you are given an hour and a beautiful gift for the winner.
Here's my scanned copy of design, which won first place in the competition.
It's endless joy to see this logo everywhere from coffee mugs to t-shirts in GE that year

Design is present everywhere. As a loving mother, I wanted to make my little son happy.
Hence, I decided to design, something which will make him wonder. Above all, doing anything for our kids, made this a wonderful memory for me.
I chose this design for his birthday cake.
Here's a sample picture.
It's my son edited picture, imprinted on the cake. As expected, there was no bound to his joy.
From my childhood, I always used to remember even the most trivial things in life. In short, its hard for me to forget anything and I also had a fun habit of scribbling small drawings all through my notebook.
I captured this, because, these were my first play with Adobe Illustrator - where I tried to create a logo for myself.

Playing shuttle and mountain biking is my favorite pastime and also a way to de-stress and refresh myself for new challenges. On the way, I won in Shuttle and basketball for my school, university, in Nokia and in GE corporate tournaments.
Volunteering helped me to be a good citizen of the world. Even from my college, I was part of philanthropic group "Vidiyal". Vidiyal is a student body, which is formed by student volunteers in CIT. It's main aim is to educate children from economically backward communities around Coimbatore. As part of this, we used to visit school children in "Economically backward" societies, and teach them subjects like Maths, Science. In 2014, they recently launched a documentary named Vidiyal.
Also, once I started working as Software Engineer, we formed a formal educational charitable trust, EnMakkal,
which works towards child empowerment in India.
