I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.

About me

Free will of the one!

A Siliguri (India) based web application, ecommerce and technology consultant. I’ve been playing around the web for over 16 years now, trying to do things I can feel proud of. I’m also the co-founder of Pixpa – a “Software as a Service” platform to build online portfolio websites. Here’s an interesting Business Today article on Pixpa. I started my career as a web application developer and have worked with companies like Sapient, GE and NIIT Tech for over 8 years, at various positions.

I love my work and I like taking on exciting projects. I take pride in my code, and strive to make sure my code is not only elegant, but simple and organized. I love solving problems and making great ideas happen. New technologies get me excited and I can’t wait to get my hands on them. I am just a guy who loves what he does for a living and has two beautiful children. Though I am passionate and opinionated about my profession, I try not to take it, or myself, too seriously 🙂

My Bullet 500

I am a proud owner of a RE Bullet 500 ( forest green ) bike. This is no ordinary bike.. it takes me to the remotest part of Himalayas without ever breaking down once, during any of my challenging trips. This picture is from my 10 days Bhutan Exploration trip in Dec 2016. B.T.W i own a Hyundai Verna as well that I don’t like much and hope to sell it soon.. 🙂

A scenic ride for some splash!

I love to go on short rides in the hills and tea-estates of Darjeeling. For me, its always a good time to go for a ride. The scenic roads, beautiful flora and fauna of Himalayas.. never ceases to amaze me. These pictures on the left are from a day, when I woke-up with a feeling of taking a dip in some Himalayan river and finished a beautiful day with blissful feelings and memories for life!
