Of the activites I engage in outside of academics and research, reading is perhaps the one that I enjoy the most. Books- easy to read fantasy page turners and serious manuscripts about the state of the world and our reality alike- have both shaped my understanding of this world and brought me much joy. That said, I will read virtually anything I come across. If you ever want to talk about a book, I’m in! If you recommend one, I’ll read it! Reach out to me if you ever feel like discussing my reading list!

Of the many facets of existence that I hold dear, there is none I cherish more than the power to create. Just as the books that I have read through the years have moved me, I aspire to write stories that move. However, I am still a fledgling writer with few pieces to my name. Here are some pieces that I’ve written in the recent past- I sincerely hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

I am an avid sports enthusiast and love playing badminton, table tennis and soccer and have trained seriously for the former two sports. I also love watching badminton, tennis, soccer, basketball and table tennis and revel in the timeless rivalries that have defined these sports in this era! The fluidity and elegance of these sports simply takes my breath away!

Organizing Events and Volunteering

I thoroughly enjoy working as a part of large teams. At IIT Madras, I have had the opportunity to work with brilliant people in multiple teams and do things that I am extremely passionate about. Through these experiences I have learnt much, found incredible mentors and made steadfast friends. I am always on the lookout for new opportunities to volunteer or work with teams that are passionate about what they do.

So if you’re doing something fun or know someone who needs a volunteer, feel free to write to me!

That said, here are some of the amazing teams I’ve had the privilege to be a part of:
