"Background" anilpradhanshillong's Profile

My Family and I

I am a retired Government servant. My wife is an Associate Professor in English. Son is with the Barclays Bank in the Equities Derivatives Division, is married and in London. Daughter is also married and in the Corporate world. My son-in-law is an Investment Banker. Been living in Shillong since the early '60's when Dad was in the Army. Simply love this naturally 'air-conditioned' place.

Computers

Totally fascinated by the computer since the birth of the Apple and its ad against the-then mighty IBM. Known computers since the PC, the PC-XT, the PC-AT, 386, 486, Pentium.... Plus point? Absolutely obedient! Cranky at time, though!!

Photography - Painting With Light

Am deeply interested in photography since an early age. With the advent of the digital camera and Photoshop, it's become easier but less challenging. Also, more time-consuming. Earlier, you sifted through 3 or 4 reels of 36 negatives each; now it's in hundreds and thousands. Tough deciding which to keep, which to discard!
