Archana Timmaraju was born at Hyderabad and did her initial schooling in Vidyaranya School, Hyderabad. Post her schooling, she joined the famous Karnataka Chitra Kala Parishath, Bangalore, from where she completed her Masters in Visual Arts (MVA), specializing in sculpture.
Archana participated in a month-long workshop on metal-based sculpture at Shilparamam in November 2011. Works done by her at this workshop are installed at the Sculpture Park, Shilparamam, for public view.
Since childhood, Archana is passionate about adventure sports. Starting with riding her friendsâ€™ motorcycles and her fatherâ€™s Jeep, she has participated in several trekking, scuba diving and biking events. Today, Archana owns a Royal Enfield Thunderbird, and has covered more than 25,000 km, mostly by touring across India.
Though born hard-of-hearing, Archanaâ€™s sheer grit, determination and her familyâ€™s support helped her get a normal life â€“ comfortably conversing (in English), without seeking the help of sign language, in which she also gained expertise. Realising there are many who are not as lucky as her, she started several initiatives to create awareness among the people who are hard of hearing.
Silent Expedition is her latest initiative towards creating awareness amongst the general public on the issues faced by the hard of hearing community, and to enhance their overall confidence levels and helping them in being treated equally amongst others.
Archana currently works in Aditi Mallya International School, a reputed school in Bangalore, as an Art Teacher, and thoroughly enjoys working with children.

I am creating this profile on behalf of my daughter. She is currently working in Toronto as a health care researcher after having completed her master's degree. On the personal front, she is friendly and easy-going. She values relationships and her time with friends and family members. She is well organized and ensures that she meets her personal as well as professional goals. Introspection, reflection and mindfulness are deeply ingrained in her and enable her to constantly enhance the quality of life for herself and those around her. She has a passion for learning new things and exploring new arenas/taking up new challenges in her career. She is a teetotaler and abstains from drinking and smoking and would prefer the same in her partner too. She is quite health conscious and works out regularly. Her hobbies include spending time with friends and family in free time and doing volunteer work.
I am currently working as a IT Analyst in a private company. I live in Toronto, Canada, so someone who lives in the same province is preferred. I'm a born again Christian and the most important person in my life is God. Looking for someone who believes in the same and also has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Please contact me only if you meet the above requirements, good luck with your search!
I completed my master's degree and am now working as a software professional. I belong to an upper middle class, nuclear family with moderate values, currently settled in Mississauga.
I am easy going, down to earth and love travelling
This is a tough one. Done my MSc MBA, citizen of Canada, living in Canada for past couple of years. The words that spontaneously come to my mind, when describing myself are ambitious, honest, passionate, adaptable, very polite, caring and fun. Sports, Music and Travel take up the rest of my leisure time. I am looking for someone who is easy to talk to and can share my zest for life. I firmly believe in 'live & let live' ideology during the lifelong companionship with equally lively, smart, health conscious, fun loving, cheerful, traditional, caring life partner who is willing to adjust more as a friend than traditional spouse. Being cosmopolitan, independent and loving will make things easy for the eventual North American way of life. If you think you can be my partner & friend for life in this voyage of mine, do drop a line. Thatâ€™s good for a startâ€¦ Good luck in you search.
