About Me

Are you looking for something witty  and uplifting? You’ve come to the website of Samir Gondalia. And for that witty and uplifting bit, look up Robin Williams videos on Youtube.

I have been working in the pharma industry for over 20 years. The views expressed on this website are mine and not endorsed by my employer in any way, shape or form. I currently live in Boston, MA which I thoroughly enjoy with its four seasons, two feet snow blizzards and all. Living in Boston may or may not be the reason for my infatuation with science and technology, but when you smell it in the air all the time, it seems natural.

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for 20 years and she’s pretty much my favorite person on the planet. We have a 12-year old son and a 7-year old daughter.

We look like this.

Sometimes we look like this when we’re celebrating Holi – the festival of color.

We added a German Shepherd puppy to our family. Her name is Raksha (from The Jungle Book). She’s everything we’d hoped for and more. I only wish I could fast forward her teething and mouthing! She’s like a piranha and doesn’t even realize it.

I enjoy learning different skills, and love learning new things. I’m  a scientist, a writer and blogger, a runner, a meditator, an art and culture lover, a cook, a world traveler, an avid reader, multilingual, and an enthusiastic learner. I’m also a self-development aficionado, a bucket list enthusiast, and a time management freak. But you’ve probably figured that out already by now.

Someday – hopefully many, many years from now if I continue to eat healthy, exercise and stay away from any nasty habits like gambling and drugs – when I’m lying on my deathbed, I want to be able to die without any regrets and full of gratitude.

I have opinions about everything and you will read a lot of them on this website. Mostly I dish out an opinion on things I know about, but my lack of knowledge doesn’t stop me from  having and expressing an opinion on subjects I’m totally clueless about and you will come across a few of them on this website as well. These are just my opinions and treat them as such. However, if there are any factual errors in anything you read on this website, be kind to point it out so I can correct them.

Hope you enjoy your time here!
