Its been 2 years since I have posted such a message. A recent look at my website statistics revealed that most of the visitors are first timers, and quite a few of them land here searching one of the “iim”, “indore”, “iim indore blog”, “iimi” or “chandoo iim”. So, let me take a moment and give a brief intro about me and this blog.

Who am I:
I am Purna Chandra Rao D fondly called as Chandoo by friends and would like to call myself as Pointy Haired Dilbert in the online world.

What is my past:
Born in Machilipatnam -> Schooling Nimmakur, AP Residential School -> Diploma in Computer Engg. from Andhra Polytechnic, Kakinada AP -> B Tech Computer Science from Andhra University College of Engineering -> One year stint as developer with Xinthe Technologies -> 2 years of PGP from IIM Indore -> Now with an India’s Largest IT services & consultancy company as analyst in Chennai

What is this blog all about:
I muse here mostly about my life, sometimes about business and advertising and every now and then about my hobbies a la cooking, photography, analytics, technology and web-design.
I started this blog when I joined IIM Indore in June 2004. Most of my initial posts were naturally about b-school life. But if you actually read the first post of every month, you would how I have changed over the last 2 years. [Archive links: July 2004, August 2004, September 2004, October 2004, November 2004, December 2004, January 2005, February 2005, March 2005, April 2005, May 2005, June 2005, July 2005, August 2005, September 2005, October 2005, November 2005, December 2005, January 2006, February 2006, March 2006, April 2006, May 2006, June 2006, July 2006, August 2006, September 2006]

Why chandoo.org?
I am passionate about blogging. So, I paid some money and got this cool domain and some space.

You came here searching for some IIM dudes blog, but…. :
yeah, you can say that you are not finding any IIM related posts nowadays, thats because I have moved on. 🙂 But you can read my archives to get a glimpse of life in b-schools.

What is my mail ID?
chandoo dot d at gmail dot com; Give me 2-3 days to respond. My connectivity to net is erratic.

Thats all, Welcome to PHD once again.
