The speciality about Lalitha Sitaraman, author of the website lalithasitaraman.in, is her continuous education. She excelled in academic performance throughout her higher studies. She was a beneficiary of National Merit Scholarship for Children of School Teachers for her BSc and MSc. Her subjects of interest and training include Mathematics, Banking, Cost Accountancy, Computer Applications, Company Secretarial functions and Languages. She has triple postgraduate and double professional qualifications.
Indian Overseas Bank, her employer, introduced a lot of learning avenues for her. She was one among the selectees for their Computer Policy and Planning Department in the year 1994-1995. The Department was later renamed as Information Technology Department. She had hands-on experience for more than fifteen years in all the stages of Software Development Life Cycle, during IOB’s prestigious in-house developed software era. She worked in various Cobol, Oracle and Sybase projects, individually, in teams and as Project Leader. She took voluntary retirement as Senior Manager from IOB after a fulfilling thirty years of service.
Her recent learnings include Python and Machine Learning. The dedicated stretches of times available in the lockdown periods of COVID-19 persuaded her to create this website. She considers her passing out all the three groups of the Professional Stage of Company Secretary course together in June,2021 Examinations within a couple of months of her recovery from COVID-19 as God’s recognition of her passion. Of late, the SWAYAM platform of Government of India is handy for the author to engage herself in courses like ‘Research Methodology and Statistical Techniques’ and ‘Financial Derivatives and Risk Management’. The fulfilment she derives from continuous education drives her less towards materialism and more towards liberation.
Her articles have been published in professional magazines of ‘Management Accountant’ and ‘Bank Quest’, which are available under the Professional tab in this website.
One thought on “About Author”
This is aishwarya, reader of your first book. I could resonate lot of your memories and writings because my mom’s name is Lalitha. She was brought up in kumbakonam. Almost of your age. Studied in the same schools you did. My grandfather’s name is V.Srinivasan who was also a hindi teacher at kumbakonam. My mother passed away in 2016 unexpectedly. I wish to write her biography probably in memoirs format. Your writing added an inspiration for that. Would be happy to meet you in person to admire more, reflect more and learn more for my way forward
