Originating from bustling India, she has over 4 years of experience in the technology sector – over half of which was in the Land Down Under. 🙃
When the configuration and debugging is done, she’ll be relaxing with a swim or out in her garden. But nothing quite beats cooking or the great all-time classic of watching TV!

"Upskilling" these workers will be a big challenge as workers today require more training than ever to learn new skills — 36 days now, compared to just three days in 2014.

Delivery Drones Problem in Australia
Delivery drones have been deemed “loud and obtrusive” by a Federal Government analysis of the noise they produce, ABC News reports. The divisive aircrafts were extensively tested for the first time in Canberra and regularly exceeded the residential area’s daytime noise standard, as they accumulated frequent community complaints. The drones were recorded at 69 decibels from 15 metres away, a level that’s comparable to a booming television and were clearly audible from inside “well-insulated homes.” The government will next call for public submissions on the issue.
