A fellow blogger SG presented me ‘Cherry on Top’ award for the choice of my blog posts subjects. As part of acceptance of the award, I am asked to write three good things about myself. This is my attempt to tell something about myself.
A French poet Jean De La Fontaine once quoted “By the work one knows the workmen”. He was right but in the world of computers, the workmen are hardly visible though their work is widely used.
