Name: Simmerjot Khera

Age: 25

Company: Adobe

Location: Noida, India

Job: Software engineer

East meets West: I wear traditional Indian-wear for Punjabi women: a suit with salwaar, Indian-style trousers, on the bottom. Adobe has a casual dress policy, so you can wear what you want. The general trend is easy and comfortable. Unmarried women wear Western clothes, like jeans or trousers, and married women prefer traditional clothes.

Pimping my cube: I've added a few things to personalize my space. Sailboats always remind me that life is a journey. It has to be continued, no matter how rough it gets due to one's workload — or ebbs and tides in your personal life! The fish I have in the bowl is a male gold gourami. Gouramis come in lots of colors, but I like gold ones because they are vibrant. They are highly territorial and don't like to share their space with any other male. Typical behavior! Fishbowls and aquariums are considered very good stress relievers, and I, indeed, find it true.

View from my window: The window has a view of a busy street and the big city. Noida is near India's capital, New Delhi, and is famous for being a leading upcoming software hub. I have a view of the whole city, including the stadium where local kids play cricket and bands practice their sessions.
