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. A couple of awesome books that I recently read and found useful are:

When I really do not feel like doing anything, I start reading physics stuff, astrophysics specifically.

That’s all about me. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter. And keep following my blog for posts that I intend to get more regular about.
