I'm a problem solver, thinker and tinkerer. I used to believe that I'm a multipotentialite, and perhaps I still do, dormantly. Then again, I choose entrepreneurship as my way of life, cause it let's me be me.
Whenever I could find time, I write. I prefer creating than consuming. I wouldn't call myself ultracrepidarian, but I might be. People find me contemplating life and everything in it. When I talk to people, I talk problems. I learn how they've handled any crisis in their life. So, if you have a problem, I probably have the solution.
I'm an admirer of human's creative capabilities. I like to explore, tinker with and master the best of human creations.
I strive to achieve better level of ignorance. Talk deep to me.

Apart from being a Business Developer, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements. My absolute favorite is MIT Technology Review. I also like watching lectures from The Great Courses website on many subjects including Arts, History, Economics, Biotechnology, Physics etc. to try and understand world little better. I wish to furthur my career in Technology Management. I enjoy my time outdoor doing motor biking, hiking and exploring places. I find rooftops a lot more amusing to get a good view.

I like to develop tools and technology to empower languages around the world. My brief association with Odia Wikipedia community resulted in few useful tools like Unicode Converter, Odiscript and Type Odia. Google would spit out few links to blogs on these tools if you want to know more. I continue to work on language tools with my friends who share my enthusiasm till today.

During my stay at Egypt, I've started a religion (more of a cult) and signed up followers from Egypt, Canada, Romania, Italy, Colombia etc. The aim is to provide an alternative belief system while being scientifically accurate and fulfill similar needs of human being just like the ordinary religions of earth. Sounds cool? More information about it will soon be available on the official website.
