My name is Akshaya. I come from a Middle Class, Nuclear Family with Moderate Values. I have completed my M.Sc. and currently work in the Private Sector -(Sustainability and Climate Change) as a Consultant.
My daughter is a consultant in the Big 5 consulting company, She has a management degree and currently works in Bangalore. We belong to an upper middle class, nuclear family with moderate values.

I am creating this profile on behalf of my daughter, Komal. She is currently at Bengaluru, working in the private sector as a Senior Consultant, after having completed her Master's degree in Development Economics at London. We are a nuclear upper middle class family with moderate family values. Her mother is Tamil Iyengar (Vadakalai) and father is Gujarati. Both parents hold responsible senior professional positions. The family has been settled at Chennai for almost 25 years now. She has one younger brother who has also completed his Master's at London and now works at Bengaluru as a Data Scientist.
Our daughter is sweet natured ,caring , kind , compassionate and fun loving. She respects elders ,family values and traditions, Strong belief in god and having a modern outlook. Prefers a partner from the Armed Forces / Foreign Service.
In her words Only daughter to my parents. My father is a retired Army Officer & my mother a free lance counselor. I am an agronomist with having experience in organic farming, which is my passion.
I am a very jovial person but at the same time serious about professional matters. I love reading books on various Topics, listening to music of different types ( Indian / Western ). I like swimming as a pass time as also play the flute sometimes. Given an opportunity I would like to explore my talent in singing western music.
I am spiritual & have belief in God but not necessarily ritualistic. I want a partner who is understanding, compassionate & caring with encouragement for me to pursue a career if I wish to. Of course I do respect the need to keep the interest of the family which welcomes me at the same time reciprocate same feelings to my parents by my partner. I am looking forward to any suitable partner who is a commissioned Officer from the Indian Army & thus serve the nation as his life partner. However other professionals like Indian Foreign Service / officer of Merchant Navy etc are welcome if interested.
My Parents are Sri Vaishnava Hebbar Iyengars and are Vegetarians but being an Army Officer's daughter can adjust to any social environment.
As a working woman, I realize that getting married and having a family will mean having to balance career and family, which will not be easy. Currently, family does take precedence over career for me, but I would very much prefer to focus on my career, and so I do not want children of my own. The time, energy and resources that go into raising one child can be invested in efforts to help a larger population.
I am okay with the idea of spending the rest of my life by myself, but the idea of sharing my life with a partner who shares similar ideologies also doesn't seem so bad. :)
