About me

I am Harish R from Erode, India. I am currently doing my third year BTech in Information and Communication Technology at SASTRA University, Tanjore. I got introduced to the world of OpenSource when I was 13. Since then I have been using a variety of open source alternatives and also evangelize it. I am an avid user of two Open Source operating systems namely Fedora and Ubuntu. I strongly believe that knowledge is a gift given by God and it should be available free for every human being. This is possible only by OpenSource. Apart from this I have many diversified interests ranging from numismatics and philately to public speaking, graphic designing and even photography! I love coding in C and C++ too!
