The Buddhist Monk is a system software architect. Though he has managed Software teams of different size with varied titles - Senior Manager, Director, Vice President, CTO - but every time he managed to sneak in his architect self into the job. He now lives and works in the San Francisco bay area (aka Silicon Valley) in California, USA. When he is not working on his professional commitments, he can be found spending time with his family, writing small software, reading books, writing worthless stuff on or off his blog or composing music. He, being a foodie, has a propensity to cook Indian food unless her daughters force him to cook non-Indian something.
