Everyday Lessons of Life

Don't lie to yourself, at least try not to • Don't take people for granted--If the best ones drift away, you're gonna regret

On the Bright Side


Leaps of Faith

Joining IIT Kanpur over KGP was a huge decision for me.


Memories I made while I wasn’t studying/working

Almost everything about CS: The meetings, Movies, Bullas, Orientation, Hakuna Matata, Coordis ko tang karna... And on and on


Things I've Done That Pushed Me Out of My Comfort Zone

I had tremendous stage fear and the first time I went up on stage, I was having a shiver---- I still remember Bajpai saying ki things will go fine--Well they did


Things I'm Proud of That You Won't See on a Resume

I've got an amazing peripheral vision • I liked ed sheeran way before he got famous • My noobness on DOTA lol


Unconventional Skills

Ever seen me lighting matches? I do it the tommy shelby way • can flip coin on my knuckles • scored 37 on flappy bird


Quirks That Make Me Who I Am

Love DOTA2 • Can't sleep if my shoes aren't arranged • Love the colour black <3 • I dont like the emojis facebook or wapp offer --- I use :3 and :v mostly • I still type emojis • I'm afraid of ghosts although I'm atheist • I still cry over novels, movies and anime---Last was pather panchali XD


Books I've Read For Fun

1984 • When breath becomes air • if tomorrow comes • master of the game • windmills of gods • the best laid plans


Things I've Learned That Will Still Matter in 10 Years

Persistence • I've been through the worst phase of my life during my junior year, ab to aage jo bhi aayega dekh lenge • Another amazing skill i've learnt is handling passive aggressive people, although I don't know how much that will help me in academia


Failures That Seemed Like the End of the World Back Then But Don't Matter in Hindsight

I won't say that its a failure but rather an incident -- I got suspended from my school in 9th for some poor decisions-- It was one of those moments when the whole world turns its back except some. Well good for me I survived. • Internship season day 1 was a wreck for me too, but things turned out to be fine.
