I was born and brought up in the city of Thiruvananthapuram. My ancestral roots are in Malachira (a village near Kilimanoor) and Chirakkara (a village near Kalluvathukkal) in southern Kerala.
schooling was at the Fort Girls Mission High School, Trivandrum. I did
pre-degree (last batch of pre-degrees in kerala !!) from Karamana NSS
College, Trivandrum. While doing my undergraduate degree in mathematics
at MG College Trivandrum, I came across and liked the idea of
programming, and went on to do an MCA and an MSc (Information
Technology) from Sikkim-Manipal University. I turned into the IT field
and worked with various IT companies in Trivandrum, Kottayam and
Ernakulam for about 2.5 years.
I am married to Jayalal Sarma.
