About Me

Career Civil Servant with over 15 years of experience working with Government of India in various capacities. I like challenges, Innovation, and Biotechnology and studying how Artificial Intelligence impacts human lives. Attracted to the spirituality and technology alike.

Working for people releases my adrenaline and keeps me going and to keep the work-life balance I started reading Bhagwat Geetha and Patanjali Yog sutras. I like to keep pace with the changing technologies by imbibing the knowledge imparted in these books.
