Hey! High Five! How are you holding up?
Great! Now that you know me, How about a little more?

I started my journey as an automobile enthusiast during college, I'm pretty much living my dream working for a luxury car maker now.
When you dont find me with cars, I'm mostly reading a book or singing a song in my room. I occasionally go out on treks though.
When it gets a little more peaceful, I write. The blog section below is all about that.
Last but not the least, data journalism interests me.
Well, that's that, now it's your turn. Use the form below.
Sending good vibes your way! See ya!

  • If you are a Data Science aspirant like me, here's something for you during the lock-down. If you are a Data Science aspirant like me, here's something for you during the lock-down.

    The #COVID19 pandemic has already flipped our lifestyles from normal like never before. I’m no exception. A lot has changed in my daily routine, I'm still adjusting to the new 'work from home' environment. With a lot of house activities to manage and an erratic work schedule, it’s a mess. I still end up with considerable time for myself. Keeping aside, Netflix binge watching and unscheduled naps I've managed to look into some free online courses on Data Science and Statistics. Here are those I found useful, starting from scratch. If you are looking for a career in Data Science, you may find these interesting too. Like me, you can put this spare time in use, to up-skill yourself.

    Starting with the basics, 'the Data Science Math Skills' by Duke University on Coursera can be a refresher on Bayes theorem and elementary mathematics. If you are a Math person, you can finish this course in a day or two.

    Next, you can deep dive into the science of decisions - statistics, from the 'Statistics course' on Udacity In collaboration with San Jose State University. From creating spreadsheets to Chi-Squared tests, this program is slow paced and fun to learn.

    Prior to the Pandemic, I was struggling to make time for Data Science. My regular job profile as a CAE Analyst is nowhere close or related. I've managed to complete a few courses on Data Analysis, Data Visualisation, Machine Learning basics, TensorFlow v2.0 etc on Coursera. If you are looking for an all starter's kit, you'll have to check out the IBM Professional Certificate on Data Science course on Coursera. Beautifully structured and easy to finish. I'm at the Capstone project now, and will finish the certification in a couple of weeks. But it's pretty autonomous with pre-filled Jupyter notebooks and very minimum efforts required from you. If you are looking for something at intermediate level, the "Machine Learning Engineer" Nano degree in Udacity will be my best bet. They are running a 30% discount as of now in some parts of the World. That will keep you busy for a while.

    Having done these, you are now ready to solve major problems, even the pressing ones at the moment like COVID19, by using AI/ ML/ Data Science. Rest is up to you to figure out. I haven't reached that level yet. Have fun learning and stay safe. And, if you find any courses than the above mentioned, that helped you in your career progression to Data Science, do comment below.

  • The Mighty Blood Moon The Mighty Blood Moon

    The Mighty Blood Moon 

    On a busy Saturday night, while most of them are busy with their city lives, i could still spot a few enthusiasts with their cams and telescopes to witness the red moon. For me it's also a rare occasion of being on my birthday. 

    It's sad to see no stars in the background, another less spoken result of urbanization. 

    The whole blood moon to super moon lasted for about an hour. Apparently the January 2018 lunar eclipse is the first ascending node eclipse of the lunar eclipse series sets from 2016–2020. It is also part of Saros cycle 124. (Source: Wikipedia)

    A short animation from the wiki page.

    We'll, my 250mm lens could capture some fine images, although not so clear due to the weather conditions. Here's the set of images I managed to capture on my Canon 700D.

  • A Trip to Jim Corbett A Trip to Jim Corbett

    On our way back from Roopkund we decided to get a chill pill from nature. October is not really the mating season for tigers, we had no luck in tiger sighting, but it was quite a relaxing ride in the forest. After-all for a city-person it's heaven.

    It was mostly birds and deer, and some amazing conversation over coffee with a naturalist.

    We stayed here.

    I tried my luck with the 55-250 canon I had :D

    Oh wait, we managed to spot a migrating elephant family of five!

    And this tiger paw impression on the way back.

    Hello there.

    Caution: So many pictures :D

    This month, I had a chance to visit Munich over the weekend.

    So, BMW or Mercedes Museum?

    My vote goes to BMW!
