Hello and welcome,

         I am Balachandran Sivakumar, a 21 year guy from Trichy. I am presently doing my B.E in Computer Science and Engineering at Thiagarajar College of Enggineering, Madurai. I would be finishing my course in May, 2008.

            I was born in Trichy and had a major part of my schooling at  Chennai. I studied at Chettinad Vidhyashram at Chennai. Then we moved over to Trichy and I joined the Mahatma Gandhi Centenary Vidhyalaya. After finishing my tenth class with an average performance, I joined the Higher Secondary School for Boys, Srirangam to do my eleventh and twelvth. Fortunately, I had above average performance in my twelfth board exams and the engineering entrance exams and joined my college.

           I had always been an average/above average student, with considerable interests in mathematics and physics. To the best of my knowledge, I have never been a topper, though I got the best outgoing student award after completing my tenth.

            Having chosen computer science as my major, I started working on various technologies and updated myself, to some extent with the recent changes in technology. But I must confess that my knowledge of recent technology is not really appreciable.

            I like to learn about and work on Operating system design, Quantum mechanics, Quantum computing, Number theory etc. I am a free software enthusiast and believe in FOSS methodology. But frankly speaking, I have no true interest in any great technology. 

             Personally, I am a firmly believe in the existence of God. Spirituality is of prime interest to me.

P.S The site is still under construction. The site is expected to be completely ready by the end of  April, 2008. For those of you who have already visited this site, Yes, it is a complete revamp. This is because of the reason that I have put up my thoughts and opinion on my blog for the people to see and comment. This site will be used only as my perosnal home page giving infoprmation about me.
