I was born in Bombay in 1989, but I never stayed in one place for long. I’m not quite sure what happened in my first three years, save for a vivid recollection of watching Silver Surfer and witnessing my tricycle being stolen. I feel privileged to have spent a couple of years in Hong Kong (1992–1996) and Kobe, Japan (1998–2000). In 2000, we, as a family, finally settled down in Hyderabad, India, where I studied at Chirec Public School. I spent 5 great years studying Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. I am currently studying some more, pursuing a doctorate degree at Stanford University.
