Now it’s time to change my Oracle ACE to Oracle ACE Director.


“Dreams don’t work unless you work towards it”. This is true in my life. It is almost eight years of voluntary work towards Oracle Users group activities in India and still the journey is continuing with great All India Oracle Users Group.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my supporters Murali VallathDebra Lilley, Mary Lou & Stany Dias

And now, last but not least, thanks to my family Mother (Lakshmi) , Wife (Jayanthi), Daughter (Jaganmayee), Son (Vivaan Vatsal) & Sister (Sai Priya) for scarifying their happiness towards community.

Let me start dreaming again 🙂
