This page will act as a buffer for everything about me that does not fit into any of the other (professional) pages on this website. Thus, this page will serve as a measure of my randomness, and hence, my entropy. Enjoy!

Random Facts
  • I spent most of my childhood and initial school days at two small/medium towns of West Bengal, India -- Raghunathganj (don't remember much) and Siliguri (can't recognize now).
  • I loved my one-year stint as a PhD Candidate at the University of Washington, Seattle, where I was fortunate to work with two intriguing personalities -- Neal Koblitz and William Stein.
  • Card tricks were my passion for a few years. I still have more than a dozen interesting decks collected from Ellusionist (the best online magic shop). Will post a list (or photos) sometime.
  • I am extremely introverted by nature, and public speaking used to be nerve-racking. I have quite painfully taught myself to perform when I teach or speak in front of large audiences.
  • Obsessive–compulsive disorder suits me well, I guess. Can't help, anyway. If you are curious, check that every single item in this list had to be two full lines of text on a standard browser.
