Required Reading:
Actually i don't have much interest in reading. But, i think for Software Professionals some basic books like, yashwant kanitkar,Balaguruswami etc are very important for developing basic programming fundamentals. Freshers should always remain in touch with Freshersworld as it gives good information
Working Life Management:
I am very particular about maintaining balance between my personal and professional life. For me if its 5.30 pm, it means its time to stop.I plan accordingly and finish my work before that.Of course, i can change my schedule depending on the situations. But after 5.30, its time for me and myself.
Role Model:
I admire my mom a lot. In spite of her adverse conditions and big family of 10 people. She managed to be a Post graduate with first class, did her PHD, was selected in number of jobs. She did some. But she valued taking care of her family more and is now a great house wife with a perfect mother.

As i was selected in Campus drive from my college.I was not able to pursue my Post Graduation.I think that PG is compulsory for me for both personal and professional growth.

Advice For New Professionals:
Don't just run for money and don't run behind others. Use your brain and heart both. You should enjoy your work more rather than craving for money all the time. Always find time for yourself,your friends, your family. Don't be old when your heart can be young.

Other Thoughts:
Always do what you want to do.Don't listen or follow others.I was an electronics student in college and always wanted to qualify GATE and join some core company. But i didn't listen to my heart at that time. But now i am happy so it doesn't matter.

Changes In The Professional Environment:
It is more stressful now a days. Currently there are strict deadlines for everything. You are given something and you have to complete it that day, even if you don't know anything about it.People are becoming more professional and strict.
