About Me

Hi,

I was born in mid 80s in a state called Madhya Pradesh (MP) in India in a typical Indian middle class family. My father retired recently from his job after working for 35 years in government owned telecom company and mother is a housewife.

I Did my formal schooling from Bhopal, MP and was an above average student. For some reason, I always struggled to learn from what teachers were teaching and learn more while reading books myself. This happened throughout in school and in college which turned out to be a really bad experience. I learnt nothing from my engineering days and wasted all my time just trying to get an engineering degree (which later I found out is worth nothing). Luckily I did found Internet, I started doing some freelance coding and then built some websites and then started doing online marketing. Life has never been the same.

I do have my share of mistakes but I feels “journey is the reward” so I have no regrets and no complaints.

Currently I am running InBoundio, a simplified inbound marketing software.

I like to enjoy simple things of life and trying to find a balance between work and life. In recent time, I have acquired new taste in beauty and aesthetics.

Things which fascinates me and I like to study -
1. Internet and Technology – How we use internet, interact and consume the web. I do want Internet to be a better place and medium and will surely work on this in coming years.
2. Dreams and Imagination (Read my post on lucid dreaming)
3. Philosophy and Religion (I am an Atheist but religion fascinates me, I will surely write a book on life and philosophy in few years, lot of the ideas are already there in this blog)
4. Quantum Mechanics and the Universe
5. I am passionate about learning and wants to do and learn as much as possible and manages a list of things I have done, doing or wants to do in future.

I also like to keep a log of My Life Lessons.

    Delhi tastes better than Bangalore, says Zomato

    By Tapasya Mitra Mazumder, Bangalore Mirror Bureau | May

    Bangalore or Chennai OR South India……… for a long time I was
    thinking or writing an article on the experience I had in all the cities I
    travelled.

    I am from Mumbai and got relocated in a lot of cities from
    the last 15 yrs. (Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Pune, Hyderabad, Calcutta, Bangalore,
    Chennai, etc.

    The experience I had in South India; Bangalore, Chennai. Btw
    some intelligent people said that South India is a part of India and we should
    be INDIANs and should not have controversies over cities within INDIA. Answer
    this:

    1)
    Why people in south India do not speak the
    national language of INDIA?

    2)
    Why they feel ashamed of speaking Hindi over
    English a foreign language?

    3)
    Why do the rickshaw walas run without meter
    across the cities?

    4)
    Weekends public transport is not there after 9
    pm?

    5)
    Airport is 3 to 4 HRS away from the city? By
    flight Mumbai or Delhi is covered by 1Hr?

    When I came to south INDIA cities like Bangalore and Chennai
    made me believe that all the south INDIA
    cities are the same and do not belong to INDIA cause communicating with locals
    here is impossible or a task you need to perform.

    Bangalore been the IT Hub of INIDA is only because of its
    weather were over all people from INDIA or onsite can settle down here. However
    now this year weather in Bangalore is as same as in Mumbai or Pune and now
    people do need AC here in Bangalore.

    Bangalore or Chennai people asked north INDIA people to go
    and get out of Bangalore …. HAHA and if we really do go.. Bangalore economy
    will fall like anything and would then just be like another city in Karnataka…

    Sarkar has changed, I hope Bangalore or Chennai OR any south
    INDIA cities no longer be IT Hub, because they are not worth it.

    Thank you Bangalore and Chennai people for your great
    hospitality and treating all people around INDIA as if we are not in INDIA and
    speaking HINDI (National Language) is treated as a foreign language here.

    BTW Bangalore, Karnataka people have a problem with all the
    states next to it. Be it Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu or Kerala.

    SHAME ON ALL THE SOUTH INDIAS AND SOUTH INDIA… WORST
    EXPERIENCE I HAD IN SOUTH INDIAN CITIES OVER ANY OTHER CITIES IN INDIA BECAUSE
    THEY NEED TO LEARN THE BASICS “HINDI LANGUAGE”.
