About Me


Hello. I am an astronomer working in an Observatory (ARIES) near Nainital. I lived in Bombay for past four years and now I'm back to my hometown to work on inter-galactic clouds.
I love to meet people from around the world, share with them a piece of my life and in return, take with me a little of theirs.
