Business Analyst, Technical Writer, Software Developer, Blogger, Photographer, Traveler, Poet – an Urban Indian.

Am a study in contrasts – Quiet and Hysterical , Calm and Turbulent, Highly Opinionated and Infinitely Inquisitive , Loving and Careless , Mr. Know all and Yet To Discover Myself.

I was born in noisy, turbulent Bombay. I grew up in beautiful, green and peaceful Gandhinagar, studied in dry and dusty Ahmedabad and am living amongst the Sahyadri mountains in Pune.

Over the years, I have been engaged with some wonderful institutions. I studied at Nirma University – one of the best Technology Universities in the country, I worked with GIVE India – one of India’s best NGOs before joining Satyam – one of India’s best IT companies.  My work in these companies took me to different places around the country, and with my love for the unknown, I embraced each of these cities as my own. I lived in Ahmedabad, Baroda, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune.

I believe I have many more places to visit yet and much more to post on this blog about my experiences and my life and the best is yet to come.

  3. Hi Janit. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m glad you like the pictures. I was in Tbilisi from July 2010 to July 2012. Not sure if you were there at that time but I don’t think we ever met. Tbilisi was a great place for photography, much more interesting than my current location in Washington DC. I do miss it.
