I am a B.Tech in Information Technology from the West Bengal University of Technology and am currently pursuing PhD in Information Technology at IIT Delhi. I possess special interests in Linux. I am also the founder member of the Students' Linux Users' Group in my UG college along with my friend Sarbartha.

About Me

My favourite subject in school was English. People say I am not bad at English. I love writing stories, and some have been published in The Statesman.

Besides, I love reading stories. Enid Blyton is my favourite. Other authors I like are Richmal Crompton, Agatha Christie, Dan Brown. I also love Shakespeare, though I have a hard time understanding much of it (and my friends call me Caesar for this). Among the Bengali authors, my favourites are Sarat Chandra, Bibhuti Bhusan, Bamkim Chandra, Rabindranath.

I love programming in C and am simply mesmerised by the versatility of the language. I have picked up a bit of PERL now.
