About Khalid Basapur's family
I am Khalid Basapur. I am from a "poor" class Muslim family. I know the person who is viewing this answer must be wondering why i have double quoted the word "Poor". This word means a lot especially India. I am thankful to my father who is a pan shop keeper and my mom is a housewife.
Currently working at
Currently i am working with a MNC called Valtech India Systems Pvt. Ltd as a Senior Software Engineer. I have been involved in software application development on Java/J2EE technologies since 5 years which are mainstreamed on BFSI, HR, e-Commerce domain. Involved in R&D of latest technologies.

Points of inflection
The time during last 2 years which gave me a tremendous amount of abroad opportunities which helped in overcoming my financial difficulties. During my stay at abroad it changed my lifestyle and helped in personality development.
Degrees that Matter
I don't feel any degrees which will help us in QA/Testing domain.These degrees just provides a foundation. I do agree that some certifications from reputed institutions help us in getting a job. My point of view is to explore the things on our own, its fastest method of becoming a good professional.
A Fine Balance:
Its obviously hard to manage. But, one must be able to balance it. I always keep my work and personal life into 2 different baskets. Once i reach to work i forget my personal life and same when i am at home. We shouldn't take much pressure on us.So, Tension leneka nahi. Deneka! this is the way iwork
Most Important Decisions
Choosing Science as a mainstream subject in my PUC (12th standard).
Joining a job soon after completion of my graduation and did a correspondence course for post graduation.
My role model is my principal from my college where i did my BCA graduation. He is very optimistic person and even he got selected for IAS. But he rejected the job just because of the corruption involved in this job. He again rejoined our college to impart his knowledge.
