More about me

Hi again,

Thanks for showing interest in knowing more about me.

I started this blog basically to improve my articulation skills. I was born in Guwahati, Assam, a north-eastern state of India. However, I was raised in six different cities which are Guwahati, Trivandrum, Ranchi, Hyderabad, Neemuch, and Jaipur. I have done a Bachelor of Technology degree as an undergraduate from MNIT, Jaipur. I was fortunate to be a part of team Zine while I was at MNIT which gave me a technical platform as well as some very close friends. Immediately after my undergraduate, I pursued an MSc degree in computer science from McGill University while being a part of MILA, RLLab, and MRL. I learned enormously from both MNIT and McGill University. They have shaped me in wonderful ways, both professionally and personally. I am extremely fortunate to have found the company of incredibly incredible people throughout my undergraduate.and graduate programs. I have learned a lot from them. 

I am a big admirer of Aaron Swartz and Elon Musk and I deeply admire their work. I am even a bigger fan of Virat Kohli. I would be very happy if I can be even a fraction passionate, hard-working, go-getter, and mentally strong as he is. There are many other personalities too who I always look up to. Some of them are Narendra Modi, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, and MS Dhoni.

Besides being a nerd, playing cricket is where I spent most of my time growing up. My team at MNIT has won the major cricket tournament of the college two years running. The ups and downs of wins-loses many times over in a team sport taught me some invaluable life lessons and have given me some of my most fulfilling moments so far.

I am also a movieholic, and my favorite movie so far has been Lakshya. For some mysterious reason, I can’t get enough of the Bhavesh Joshi movie either. Sometimes you would also find me immersed into a book. I find them a great way to stimulate my mind. One awesome book that I recently read and found useful is Ego Is the Enemy by Ryan HolidayWhen I really do not feel like doing anything, I start reading physics stuff, astrophysics specifically.

I thank you for taking the time to read more about me, rather than investing time in more tempting things out there. In case you still have some more time, please visit my bucket list page and let me know if you are down to help me finish any of these. In exchange, I am happy to feed you with aloo gobhi achari which my friends have told me is delicious.
