My Hobbies

Also wondering what my hobbies are? Scroll down a bit and find out!
Reading

For me, reading books has always been a great refuge and at times a great momentarily escape. Wherever I go, I make sure that I have one tucked somewhere.

Photography

Yeah, sometimes I really like to push the 'pause' button of my life simply by taking shots of some important moments in my life!

Writing

What can I say, I cannot imagine myself without expressing my feelings and my thoughts by writing.

Playing Tennis

I think it is a nice game to come out and play because it is a combination of physical, mental, technical and tactical skills. As Justin Gimelstob says, "it is just a great feeling hitting that ball cleanly and purely".

What I Do

As a multidisciplinary person, I am also interested in areas which are not directly related to my educational background. That is, I not only enjoy doing web or advanced programming but also like managing a business or enrolling in a business environment where I need to make use of my communication skills.
Web Programming & Design

Since my early childhood, I have always been interested in web programming and web design which encouraged me to become a professional in the field.

HTML, PHP, ASP.Net, JSP and SQL are the various web programming languages and tools that I am very familiar with. Photoshop and Coreldraw are the graphic illustration tools that I use to effectuate my ideas related to visual content.

Advanced Programming

As a part of my education, I am also very familiar with these ancient & young brothers: Shell, Python, C, C++ and Java.

System Design & Architecture

I am building and maintaining large scale, high traffic, multi-party IoT and big data systems as a profession. I am reviewing and influencing new designs, architectures, standards and methods, and employing them with state of the art cloud technologies.
