My life

I’ve been writing code since I was 9 years old and I’ve spent almost my entire life (I’m 18, so yeah!) building startups.

I’ve learnt almost everything by hitting the roadblocks and removing them (trial-and-error) or you may say failing first and then improving on my failures, that’s one of the reasons why I love sharing what I’ve learnt and advising others!

I’ve lived a different life, while my old mates are following the same old common road, I’m trying to follow a road not taken. While taking such a trajectory, which not many people support. I’m really thankful to my dad who understands my passion and helps me through the struggles.

I also have a very supportive and a very caring lover, who even after knowing that I was at the blink of failure stayed with me, and helped me a lot through the daily bullets and challenges I faced!

As well as thanks to my good old classmate, who still struck with me and helped me a lot during the times of trouble.
