  1. Big hello to all fiatians

    and my small introduction here :)

    My name is Karthik B Mallur, a.k.a Karthik M.B a.k.a MB a.k.a Karking a.k.a kar a.k.a karthik1100
    i was born and brought up in Bangalore, a 26years old, completed my dip. in electronics & Communication in 2003, i started graphic designing using corel draw and photoshop as a hobby at the age of 7(in year1991), learnt professional photography at the age of 8(1992) with my dad's Pentax KX SLR Camera (i Still have that), learnt car driving at the age of 14(in 1998) with my dad's first car(1992 Padmini) i couldnt save it :cry: , persued hardware engineering from Kammavari sangham institute and started business myself when i was 16years (computer hardware sales and service) while studying at college, after completion of my education i joined an ad-agency as a graphic designer in 2004, worked for almost one year and quit the job hoping to join Mc.Millan or LOWE in both of the ad-agency i had cleared final round, in the last they did not take me as diplomas are not considered as a degree. fed up with ad agencies, i badly wanted a job so joined HDFC life insurance as an advisor passed IRDA Exam in top but a business development manager asked me a bribe to handover my certificate, i messed up with him and quit that. then Joined HP call centre in 2005, worked for 4months, my parents and friend made me resign the job as i dont deserve to be there, even worked for citibank credit card recovery department for few months and transport admin before joining call centre.
    fed up all unsuitable jobs and continued my dad's business. he had a production unit of Identity cards, files, folders, diaries, and used to supply to almost all education institutions across karnataka. he had to close down his business in 2006 for personal reasons. in 2007 we started a company Enhanced Spy Security systems (distributors of electronic security systems) i m here in the company as an executive director. fully concentrated on business for 2years and i took the company to one among the top 10 companies in the related field in Bangalore. i became one of the co-founders of FCB in 2009 and bought a 1986 padmini as i could not restore my dad'd padmini. started my acting career in late 2009 and i did 3 projects, one of the film director also has an small ad agency call me to work for him as a fashion photographer, creative director, and still editor in 2010 February. and started a part time job in ad agency. i participated in Maruthi suzuki dakshin dare rally as a Marshal few months back, recently i was taken as a director to S.L.V Souharda Credit co-operative Ltd.(not started my work yet).
    more than all i am a fiatian, fiat is in my blood. i always wish i was born as a FIAT.

    Nice intro Karthik.. Come lets have a Fiatful time here too..

    Through our old FIATs, I met Karthik(Sujith and funkykar too) on March 10th 2009, for the first time. We had become friends through Orkut.

    More than 17 months since we know each other now. We all have become best buddies and share all our personal problems too (these days generally nobody is even ready to listen to our problem let alone helping). We four guys meet every other day after our work.

    Nice to have you as a friend Kar!
