About Me!


Hi there! If you are here, then there is a huge chance that you want to know more about me. Well sorry to disappoint you, but I am not a special person! However, If I have to describe myself in a sentence, I would say that I am a practical learner, a knowledge enthusiast, a life hacker and a would-be mentor.

And yes, I am an introvert.

Being an avid learner of unconventional topics makes me think in an unconventional way.  It all started with my B.Tech degree in Electrical Engineering from MNNIT Allahabad, India (2008-2012). After that, I was lucky enough to clear Engineering Services Examination in 2012 itself without attending any coaching. (How?)  Moreover, I had cleared GATE in 2011 with All India Rank of around 100 and repeated that again in GATE 2012. I am currently working in Indian Railways as an IRSEE officer. (What’s that?) Prior to that, I was working in NTPC Ltd. Once upon a time, I was a die-hard aspirant of the civil services (IAS) which even led me to the Interview stage in 2014. But then I left my IAS preparations. (Why?)

From being unconventional, I have now realized that the beauty of life lies in experimenting with it.

Keep experimenting with it, and you will get the gems never seen by anyone before.

In this blog, I will keep writing about anything I will feel worth sharing in a hope that each post will benefit at least a single person out there.

These days I am experimenting with these areas –

  1. Positive Psychology
  2. Graphic Design
  3. Photography
  4. Data Science and Machine Learning
  5. General Programming
  6. General Management and Productivity hacks

And hence you can expect articles related to these topics here.

    First of all I want to say that the life I want is being led by you. So I am little envy of you. But I am also happy because it motivated me.

    Secondly problem with me is that I study a lot …. studying and studying .. but it results nothing. Why?
    Please suggest me a solution.
    By the way I am an electronics engineering graduate from a private engg college (2012 passout).


    1. Thanks Manav, but everyone has their own share of demons. You will know when you will get here and I know you will 🙂

      Now coming to your problem, I can say that its a pretty common problem among students. Even I was also a victim of this problem once. See Manav, the thing with studying is that it’s not a scalar quantity. It is a vector quantity. So, as much as the magnitude counts, direction plays an equally important role too!

      By direction I mean planning, I mean strategy. Always have a motive of why you are doing something. And then do that as required by your motive. For example, if your aim is to clear GATE and you are solving problems, then are you solving them timed? Are you solving GATE level questions? Are you solving questions collected from a number of topics or just solving them from a single chapter. The more you will simulate exam like conditions, the more will be your chances of success.

    @Sagar: In your article where it was mentioned that railway officers were restricted in appearing for ESE/CSE/CME, I am confused whether it is applicable only to Group A officers or is it also applicable to other groups like Senior Section Engineer (which belongs to Group C).????

    Hello sir. I have a doubt regarding medical standards which is bothering me a lot. I have myopia and astigmatism of -4,-.75 for right eye and -2.5,-1.25 for the left eye respectively. I want to know if i am medically fit as it’s mentioned in UPSC Website that for ESE eye power for left/right eye inclusive of cylinder should not exceed -4 D. I am a die hard ese aspirant so knowing this is my first priority.
