I am Sundararajan (Sundar) and my ancestral village is Pudupadi, near Vellore in North Arcot District in Tamil Nadu. I grew up in Chennai. I am a scientist by profession in the area of Polymer Science. I was with the research division of Xerox Canada for 25 years and then became a Professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Although I joined the Tamil Brahmin Group a few years ago, I have not been active in the group. I hope to change that and visit the website more often.
