Who are you?
My name is Shruthi and I live in Bangalore, India.

What do you do?
I've qualified as an Energy Engineer, worked as a Software Engineer, and now, I'm a mother and an aspiring freelance-writer.

What do you like?
I love to read, and would have done it all day long, all my life, if it had been possible. I also love writing, music and travelling.

Who lives with you?
My husband, whom I refer to as S~, and my daughter, whom I call Puttachi.

How old is Puttachi?
She was born on May 23rd, 2007.

Is Puttachi her real name?
No, it isn't.

What does Puttachi mean?
It means "Little one" in Kannada, which is what we speak at home.

Are the conversations with Puttachi carried out in English?
No. She is not yet that fluent in English (as on June 1, 2010). The conversations are in Kannada. I am too lazy to write them down in Kannada and then translate them in English for the non-Kannada speakers, and so I put them down directly in English. After all, I just need to convey the effective meaning.

Will continue to be updated.
