Life Runs on Code

A reluctant Enthusiast... A part-time Crusader, A half-hearted Fanatic!

Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast... a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure.Edward Paul Ebby

Comes from a small village called Pachrukhi in Mithila region of Nepal. Did most of his schooling in Kathmandu, said mostly because, had to switch schools every time his father got posted to new location.

Fitting to say he's a tech-savvy guy and likes to be up-to-date with the ever changing digital landscape. Is mostly up-beat about travel, music, social media, startups and green technology.

Received his bachelor degree in Computer Science from National Institute of Technology (Warangal, India). Currently works as software engineer for One97 in Delhi. Takes keen interest in Web and mobile applications, e-commerce solutions. Apart from work and hobby projects, likes to stay occupied with occasional trips, loves cooking.

Started his career working as Java developer for Portware, must add those two- two and half years at Portware were the most amazing days at work. Have missed being at Portware ever since.

Was at ClearSenses, first start-up experience, thoroughly enjoyed working with Sanjay and the team. Moved onto Urbantouch to gain some e-commerce experience, what seemed like a roller-coaster ride, soon turned into topsy turvy one, forcing him to move on.

It was then time to go mobile, as mobile domain remains largely unexplored, and more challenging than ever.

Believes that Life runs on code, and usually gets fascinated by things a piece of code can do.

Slightly superstitious sometimes, yes, but has room for rational thoughts as well. Believes in luck, but understands that nothing happens just like that, even when odds are against you, if you're determined to see through the storm, you can make it, you can make things happen. You can invent hope even when time's running out, key is to have faith and keep faith.

You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one. I hope some day, you'll join us.

Has a sufi soul, also enjoys listening to classic rock, old hindi and maithili songs.
