My Mind Palace
A compilation of my thoughts, feelings, opinions, day to day stuff and miscellaneous stuff....
The First Entry: An introduction
The date is 19th of March, 2014, 12:00 am. Today I will turn 23. Loneliest birthday of my life lol. I'm stuck in my university campus for the Holi holidays, my parents are travelling so I can't go home, my best friends are all in different parts of the country, busy with work and all. My rakhi sister's all the way south, travelling with her family. Online life is quiet and hasn't seen much activity lately as it used to a year back. And also I'm single, quite recent event so yeah well that. Ain't the best hour in a guy's life lol...

Anyways I thought that I'd start writing this journal, putting a pen to my thoughts and share stuff with people. Maybe give something more to the people that go through my profile than just some decorations. I've labelled it as a daily journal but we all know too well that it's likely not gonna hit that mark lol. Also I'm better at typing than at writing so well an online journal is something worth trying. As a first post I'd like to share to any reader a bit about myself. Yeah, we have the About me section on the profile and all but that really doesn't do justice to an interested reader.

First of all, you guys can call me Nadi.I'm a final year masters student of Biochemical Engineering at the I.I.T.(B.H.U.), Varanasi, India. That puts me pretty much in the league of the smartest graduate engineers in the country and the world. Not trying to brag much here but folks from my college carry a heavy reputation and therefore, society has great expectations from us. My role is basically to put it in simple terms, 'to find a better way to do something'. I'm really proud of the career path that I've chosen, as it gives me the benefit of doing a service to mankind directly. All those medicines that you see at your local pharmacist, guys like me are responsible for making them available to you all all the way from some random bio molecule candidate. It isn't an easy job and it's about more delicate than even the most complex surgery procedures in medicine. What I basically do is create an environment for very small microorganisms to grow. My specialty is mammalian cells, which require even more care to grow. They are extremely delicate and require almost precise conditions to grow healthy. One batch may last between one to two months, so we need to maintain those precise conditions for that long. Any mistake would kill the entire batch. If something goes wrong, either we don't get the cells to produce the biomolecule which is the main drug that hundreds of thousands of people need, or it will produce a faulty drug, which if it by any chance reaches the market, will kill a lot of people. Fortunately, we're careful with that, so is the government. Designing systems that can manage all that is my job. So yeah, it's a very meaningful job that can change the world.

Well enough about who I am professionally. In my informal side, I think that I'm very smart with numbers, geometry, mechanics and stuff like that. I'm also an occasional song writer, singer, dancer, debater, public speaker, quizzer. I've done each of these activities on a large role in front of an audience in large events. Sports has never taken kindly on me. I do enjoy football (Soccer), badminton, tug of war. The rest of the games I play are confined to the electronic world, where I enjoy playing computer games. Not as much as I used to but I still do play a few. In general I don't think of myself as a good artist, but I can do some art here and there. I mostly specialize in editing art that's already there or very small scale art. Same goes with videos. I do think I have a talent with the camera but I've never taken so much interest in photography but I have been an official photographer for a college student run tabloid Konfused Koalas. Love the VIP access in events lol.

My profile will show the rest of the things I enjoy, such as movies, animes, music, TV series and books. I guess that's it for my post.
If anyone wants to know more about me or wants me to post about something specific or know my opinion on something; feel free to comment, or pm me. Other than that, I wish you all a good 19th of March.
