My name is Vijay Bandaru and I am an Indian. I live in Hyderabad city of Telangana state with my wife and two kids.
Our world is so small but heavily filled with emotions, competitions, games, and politics. I believe in “United we stand, divided we fall” and “It’s easy to pull down but not easy to build up”. So Collaboration, Trust, and Transparency are the key to success and to create an environment where people can have a win-win situation. always work towards that direction and I also encourage and support the people whom I work the same way.
The core values that I follow in personal and professional life all the time are: Honesty, Transparency, Positive Thinking, Validated Learning, Share and Care, Receptive.
