About Me: 'Me' is a pronoun!

I like traveling, ice skating, reading, 'talking' and am trying to learn cooking. 
Although the picture makes many think I am singing in it, I am not that good at it. I have lived in Pune, Boston, Bangalore and Mumbai. Presently I share my time between Mumbai and Pune.

DSCN0213.JPGFrom the Media Lab days: We used to break open expensive cameras the way kids rip apart toys. Media Lab is like a sand box where students are given open access to multiple tools, equipments, softwares, time and money to create things and dabble into areas of their interest. Media Lab probably has made the strongest influence on the way I look at and use technology. It made me realize there is nothing like "technical feasibility", one just has to create things and figure out ways to solve hurdles.
