Born, as a grandchild to an Indian Diplomat, to a merchant navy engineer and his wife in a traditional Indian city called Varanasi, also known as Kashi or Banaras. Spent most of my childhood there and after school years in various other parts of India e.g. Aligarh / Meerut / Delhi.
Finished MBA in 1997, luckily, not too late, I found that my passion is in creating things. Then next couple of years quickly went by working with software and doing other experiments. Then moved to England, completed an MSc – Ecommerce and subsequently spent 3 years writing Fortran during my Phd – computational model to predict the effect of pollutants on fish liver cell. The summer of 2007 has arrived.
