About me

I am a reader, writer and traveler. A WordPress Core contributor. I write code by passion, poems by interest and travels by love. I am a curious person who is always in search of new stuff to learn. In my voyage of life, I’ve got truly loving family, been in most amazing school and college and got some of the finest gurus and awesome friends.

Code

I was 11 when I saw and touched real computer first time. And I was 14, when I wrote my first program in QBasic on a Windows 3.0 machine, you know, it felt awesome. After all these years, I still get the same feeling while coding. I decided programming as my future, long time back and now code is driving my life, its a dream came true.

Career

My coding skills evolved and funnelled after I joined rtCamp, a great place for WordPress enthusiast, as web developer. I learned so many things there and of course made some new friends. Now, I am working in Bitwise Global, Pune as Programmer Analyst and completed 4 awesome years of my career.

Literature, Music and Movies

I love literature. In Marathi, Kusumagraj, Vinda Karandikar, Sandip Khare, Guru Thakur, Saumitra are some of my favorite poets. PuLa Deshpande, V. S. Khandekar, Shivaji Sawant, N. S. Inamdar are my favorite Marathi novelist. In English, I have read all of Chetan Bhagat (though I am not his fan), some of American poet Robert Frost and Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho. Still many books are queued up in my read list. (Currently reading, Loosing my Virginity by Richard Branson.) Dr. Kalam, Richard Branson and Elon Musk are my role models. Have big time interest in Astronomy and extra terrestrial life on exoplanets.

For me, Marathi movies are always better than Hindi movies. Some of my favorite stars are Sachin Pilgaonkar, Ashok Saraf, Swapnil Joshi, Sonalee Kulkarni (Jr.).  Well, I am a big fan of hollywood’s sci-fi and action movies, specifically Star Wars, Star Trek, Gravity, Fast and Furious, Gone in 60 seconds, Mission Impossible, Ocean and Bond series. George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan, Nicolas Cage, Vin Diesel, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts are few of my favorites.

In music, Indian music tops over others on my like list. I am fan of Late Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Shivkumar Sharma (Santoor is my favorite), Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Mohommad Rafi, Kishor Kumar, Kumar Sanu. I also like Urdu poetry and gazals by Javed Akhtar and Gulzaar. In western music, I often like to hear, Enrique Iglesias.

Apart from these, I love to ride my bike, leaning over the curves of road while twirling accelerator, traveling by road, photography through my lenses, cars (Especially German, Tesla is recent addition) and Pune City. 🙂
