About meEdit

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all."-- Oscar Wilde

I am a Ph.D. scholar in the Educational Technology inter-disciplinary program at the Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay (IIT-B) and I'm currently focused on teaching thinking skills in history using technology

I am a salesman of ideas. If I were not busy selling the idea of a better world through education I'm not sure where else I would have ended. Right now I'm also in the middle of fulfilling my bucket list so suggestions are welcome.

When I'm not busy saving the world I volunteer around 6hrs a week running a fitness training program for the students on the IITB campus, practice parkour, organise cycling sessions and dance when no one is watching.
