Hey there, reader! I'm a graduate from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (batch of 2019). I'm currently employed at Intuit India.

There are many personas to me, and here are some that co-exist peacefully -


The Web Developer "me", likes to build full-stack and responsive websites. He's tired of conventional Bootstrap & PHP - and rather prefers Semantic-UI & Ruby-on-rails. However, even after 2 years experience, he can often be found ranting about the ever-increasing number of new JavaScript frameworks to be learned, when asked to choose from JQuery, AngularJS, MeteorJS, ReactJS.


The Programmer / Software Developer "me", likes to build functional and useful scripts of Ruby & Python. The fields of these scripts consists of Image Processing, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Web Scraping, Social Media API, Growth Hacking & what not! Most of the scripts can be found open-sourced on GitHub.


The Coffee Lover "me", is just a persona that is induced by the above two personas, to keep away from sleep and to battle the rants of the above two personas on a day-to-day basis.


The Chess Maniac "me", likes playing Chess matches and solving tactic puzzles of Chess.


The Carnatic Vocalist "me", acts as another stress buster along with the remaining personas.


The Fanboy "me" likes watching & discussing many TV Series', such as - The Flash, The Arrow, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Big Bang Theory, etc. He also inspired the Developer "me" to build An Episodes' Synopsis Aggregator for TV Series'.


The Grammar Nazi "me" likes English language in general and shalt mercilessly correct your grammar / spelling mistakes. He also likes reading novels and is in charge of writing the blog posts here. Oh, and he goes by the pen name of "Vibe".
