About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Trying to live a earth-friendly lifestyle.
I have just finished my Ph.D. in theoretical computer science from Sweden. Currently volunteering in Community Supported Agriculture farms close to Berlin. Looking for a job in regenerative farming or rural development project in Berlin that involves India. Coming from a different background and putting so many expectations perhaps makes my chances hard. But I will find my way for sure. :) I like to write, here are my blog https://bimanwander.wordpress.com/) and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/bimanwander/
ABOUT ME
I think that's something always evolving. :) But humility, apathy, honesty are few characters that always remain intact with me.
PHILOSOPHY
I love quotes, so here are some to reflect my thoughts
"I know that I know nothing"
"Change is the only constant in life"
"The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences"
"If you never try, you never know"
"Life does not happen to you, it happen for you"
"I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul"
"If you want something in life reach out and grab it "
"Life is a lot like surfing… When you get caught in the impact zone, you’ve got to just get back up. Because you never know what may be over the next wave"
“You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realise this, and you will find strength.”
“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.”
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
I can go on... ;)

Interests

Recently farming is my biggest interest. How to grow my own food is something excites me. A big part of day gone by reading a lot about plants and farming in general. Love to know more about different types of regenerative farming. The science of soil intrigues me. I guess it might do to you as well if you watch this for a starter., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ugaL6wsXME&fbclid=IwAR3iDKXIPc_tIBeDm9RrmqbBCrmCj5pklmeZjKOJJ3KWNfGFssAOERWVW2o

Understanding climate change is another recent development of mine. What would you say how much carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere. What will be your answer, 10-15-20-40? Nah none of them are right! It's less than .1%. Yes you read it right! In the atmosphere there 78 % of Nitrogen, 21 % Oxygen and 1% everything else. Shcoking is not it? So, just imagine, even the slightest increase of this fraction in percentage what effect can create! If this makes you curious, take a look at this one https://serc.carleton.edu/earthlabs/carbon/index.html

Amidest all this, if you wondering does this guy work on his P.hD at all! To be honest, not that much. :D

I like to talk about, yoga meditation, histroy, philosphy, science etc as well.
