About Me

I am Aveek. I am an engineering student pursuing graduation in the field of Electronics & Communication at NIT Agartala, India.

I first made headway into Linux in my eighth standard but could't properly do the partitioning. I started using Linux almost an year back when I entered the college. Then I went to NIT Durgapur's Linux fest Mukti & am using the insights gained there for further headway.

We have started our own LUG . The weblink is:
