I am a Kannadiga from a tiny town with lofty ambitions. I love traveling in trains and spending time at beaches. Having spent my childhood summer vacations in my native village that lies beneath the mighty Western Ghats, I have grown fond of forests and rivers. I passionately play simulation games in my spare time. I enjoy reading books and watching classic movies.

I am a physics undergraduate student at IISER Thiruvananthapuram, one of the premier research institutions in India for basic sciences. Although primarily interested in quantum information theory and quantum physics, I partake in theoretical pursuits of almost any discipline. I consider myself a student forever.

This blog is a collection of things I find interesting. If any piece of this inconsequential pile of information helps you in any way, that's a bonus! I have always wanted to write and maintain a blog and it looks like I am finally there.
