I’m D.Ravi Shankar living in Hyderabad. I
have done my B.Tech in CSE from IIIT-Hyderabad. I was placed in

I was born in the year 1983

state govt officer. My mother Krishna Kumari. She is a house
wife. I have a younger brother. His name is Mohan Nimai. He
doing his B.Tech from ICFAI.
My father is a govt employee, he
frequently gets transferred. So we used to shift for every 2
years. I have done my schooling in about 8 schools at various
places in AP. As a result I have developed good adaptability
skills. I always excelled in studies. I’m hardworking and
committed to work. I’m involved in lot of extra curricular
activities. An effective team player, I worked for the Afro
Asian Games and Nation Games as a team leader for the design of

and watching movies.
I have done my schooling at
various places in Andhra Pradesh. My early schooling is in
Guntur. Studied some time Vijayawada also. Then my father was
transferred to Vishakapatnam. Here I studied in St.Pollocks
school. In the middle of the academic year my father was
transferred to Vijayanagaram and here I had to wait for 6 months
to join school. I had very nice time just playing with my
friends around. But had to join the school been there for an
year and we moved to Parvathipuram. My father was the Project
Officer ITDA. Here we used to have a seperate Gypsy for me and
my bro. A fleet of vehicles were available for use. We have a
separate bungalow and we had an excellent facilities here. We
used to cover most of the historically imp places around on
holidays. We had a grt time then. After 2 years my father is
posted as the Project Officer for ITDA in Eturnagaram (Warangal
Dist). This was real cool. We had a big bungalow of 10 acres and
so many servants. Most important thing is I used to have a gun
man for my security.Here we studied in Thapar Vidhya Vihar at
Kamalapuram. The road to school is about 10 km from my house
through the forest. It was all interior area...in fact wild life
protected area. I even remember to have seen a cheetah (escaped
from the near by zoo) on our way to school. During our stay here
I got a gold medal in art at international level. We also had a
pet deer in our house. Then my dad was transferred to Hyderabad
as the Additional Commissioner MCH. We have gone to our grand
parents house in Kakinada. My grand father is a strict man and I
used to have real difficult time coping with him. My parents
allowed me to be a free bird but not so with my grand father. He
was a retired executive engineer Port. Here I got several prizes
in various competitions. From Hyderabad my dad joined UNDP on
deputation at Ananthapur and we also moved to Anathapur. Where
ever I have been I always used to be the hero of my school. From
Ananthapur we moved to Hyderabad where my dad joined again as
Additional Commissioner MCH. I was selected to Ramaiah and had
