In addition to the immeasurable joys of spending time with his family and often getting coffee with friends at Starbucks, in his spare time (if any) Praveen, the engineer, helps friends and family repair, maintain and use various electronic devices, especially laptops and desktops, which seem to need a lot of hand-holding. He is always looking for devices you wish to get rid of so that they can be refurbished and given to those who might be able to put them to good use.
