Uday Dudhbhate is the son of Sarala Dudhbhate (née Borgaokar) and Anant Rao Dudhbhate who is the daughter of Shankar Rao and Kumudini Borgoankar (née Jatar). Kumudini Borgoankar née Jatar was the daughter of Balasaheb Jatar, who was the son of Shriram Bhikaji Jatar.

Uday’s father Anant Rao retired as Additional Director Social Welfare Maharashtra Government, and was thus posted in various Districts of Maharashtra. He is settled in Pune.

Uday has done his M.Tech from IIT Madras and has an engineering business in Pune. His wife Kumudini Dudhbhate, née Desai (52) shares her name with my maternal grandmother (Kumudini Borgoankar née Jatar) and is also from Hyderabad. Kumud has done her M.Phil in Sociology and is currently helping me in my manufacturing business. We have two beautiful daughters.

Geetali (26) is our eldest and after her BE from Pune she completed her MS in Computer Science in May 2012 from the US and we feel proud to say that she was a research assistant and had full funding from the University for her MS.
