Happy Birthday to Ananthapuri.com!
Today (August 12, 2006) we celebrate the 4th anniversary day of Ananthapuri.com! I registered the domain ananthapuri.com on 11th August 2002 and the first page was online the very next day on the 12th. The website was formally announced to the public on 15th August 2002, on the Indian Independence Day. I was in New Jersey, USA those days and got good enough leisure time to work on the website and to do research and analysis for the website.

I just came back to Thiruvananthapuram from Bangalore. I got a great opportunity to meet the most admired Indian IT Acharya, Mr N R Narayana Murthy of Infosys Technologies Limited, at his residence. It’s so exciting! This is one of the most memorable days in my life. The happiness even out-weighs Ananthapuri.com’s birthday celebrations!
OK, now back to Ananthapuri.com story! On the way back home, we celebrated the birthday at a restaurant in Salem, Tamilnadu. Sorry, we did not have time to enjoy the champagne!
