It has been a long time, since I have written anything about myself. So, I am intending to make as much use of this section here as I can. I did a formal presentation of what I am and what I do, previously here. But, I guess it was too formal and whenever I'd read it, I'd either stop reading after first two lines or dodge away from my self-description. It looked more like my description written by someone else. I had been planning to change the whole uncomfortable and too formal "about me" section here, since quite a long time. But, my work and all the events had prevented me to come here at all.

By "my work" I mean, my routine and regular job which is of making software, or to be precise - of re-using the things which are already there in the market to create something that can ease up some tasks for some other people.

I was born in a small town called Hazaribagh (India), though I don't remember anything about the place. My consciousness has registered my initial memories from a small place called Barmana in Himachal Pradesh(India), where I spent the first 11 years of my childhood. After that my life took me to the terrains of Punjab(India), Rajasthan(India), Bangalore(India), New York(USA) and Germany. I have done my Masters in Software Engineering from BITS Pilani, India. I always wanted to become a school teacher, but now I guess, in my industry of "Software engineers", almost everyone wanted to become someone else than what they are right now. So, I don't want to crib on that part. Besides, my job is much smoother on the work front, a bit monotonous, but most importantly it can take care of my funds. So, I feel blessed and thankful for my wonderful job and all that I can get from it.

I was never a TV person. I could watch TV only when I am too tired to do anything, but never because of boredom. I love to read, write, sketch, paint and play piano. Most of my writings at hubpages are for the purpose of "information sharing". If you are interested to read my ramblings, you can check my writings at my personal blog.

I am a beauty and makeup junkie and love to share my stuffs, reviews and other beauty related updates on my Beauty blog - Beauty Diaries

My life has remained almost perfect till date, except for my problems of being a bit overweight all time. So, I have decided to get into some health and fitness things, and that includes my diet, exercises and of course more research and education. I jot down all my findings at my healthdiaries

If you are interested in gadgets, mobile phones and other electronics and want to explore some of them, you can check them at my electronic gadgets collection.

I love to write, and try to find out time and energy from my day-to-day routine to get some thoughts down on the paper. Topics ranging from self-help to beauty and health, fantasy, fiction, and any unusual crazy things interest me a lot. I am also quite aligned to the self-help, motivation, law of attraction and the like topics. Some of my collections can be found at succeedineverything.wordpress.com.

I also love to sketch and paint. Some of my art works can be found at my art gallery here.

Apart from hubpages, I write at a few other places as well. You can find me at the following places:
