Then (before 1985):

I am from India, born in the state of Kerala : the vista of silent valleys clothed in the richest green,
and grew up in the state of Rajasthan : a desert land, most significant for bio-diversity values.
Vidhya Vihar Pilani, an oasis in Rajasthan, is where I grew up, got my education, got married, had both my children Gitanjali and Ravishankar , and started my teaching and research carrier in computer science.
Vidhya Vihar is a beautiful campus town of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS).
My elementary and high school education were from Birla Shishu Vihar, and Birla Balika Vidhya Peeth .
I completed  B.Sc, M.Sc(Math),M.Tech(CS), and Ph.D.(CS) degrees from Birla Institute of Technology and Science
at Pilani. Sharada Peeth , is an all-marble twentieth century modern temple with mail idol of  Godess Saraswati, asymbol of knowledge. This beautiful temple is the center of the BITS campus.
In January 1985, after having Pilani as my home for 34 years, I moved to USA.

Now (after 1985):

On the cold and snowy night of January 29 1985, I landed at Atlanta, Georgia to joint the department of Information and Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology as a Fullbright Fellow. After 6 months of eager waiting my family joined me in August 1985. In August 1987 we moved to West Lafatyette, Indiana to join the department of Computer Science at Purdue University.
