31 January 2008 2 Comments

Hi Guys,

Today I have a very very special guest on my blog. Its an honour to have Gautham Thambidorai on my blog! I dont have to give any explanation or introduction to Gautham. Gautham is one of the leading engineers at Google. Just do a google search on his name and see the results. Click here for the results πŸ™‚

But today, we wont be talking about his accomplishments at google! Thats too long to post πŸ™‚ Instead, we will focus on his hobbies and other interests.

Welcome Gautham Thambidorai!!


Coffee With Gautham Thambidorai!

Me: Sundar Rajan G S
GT: Gautham Thambidorai!

Me: Hi Gautham. Welcome to Coffee With Sundar! You recently did sky diving. How was it? Share it with our readers.
GT: It was awesome!… Definitely worth the thrill. The adrenaline level reaches its highest point just as your about to jump of the plane. Its all downhill from there! I was actually skeptical about doing it because I tend to get motion sickness on the thrill rides but then Manju(my wife) was definitely doing it and hence I couldnt wuss out πŸ™‚

Me: What are your other interests? Are they all fitness related activities?

GT: Squash, Swimming, Running. I’m crazy about Seinfeld. I also tend to like to read a lot of autobiographies,books on social issues, philosophy etc. No fiction for me.

Me: When did you start with these activities?
GT: I started playing squash when I came for grad school. I learnt swimming when I
was pretty young and so that was easy.

Me: How do you manage your time with your work?
GT: I dont really do anything special πŸ™‚

Me: What is your advise for folks who want to pick up these fitness related activities as their hobby?

GT: After a while you get so used to it that your body automatically pushes you everyday and starts complaining if you dont do it… pretty much like sleeping! So, Just start it! πŸ™‚ It will take care of itself!

Me: Finally something work related. What is your advise for young and budding software engineers.

GT: Dont make me feel old my asking such questions πŸ™‚

Me: Ha ha!! Gautham shied away from the last question! πŸ™‚ But let me tell you, he is too good and we should all learn from him.

It was a great pleasure having Gautham Thambidorai on my blog. Having a person of such calibre, raises the standard of my blog as well!! πŸ™‚

Hope you all had a good time! As I said earlier, at Coffee With Sundar I intend to bring people from different walks of life, have a chat and share the transcript for you to read, learn and enjoy!
