I am a Cardiac Electrophysiologist, a physician dealing with abnormally fast or slow heart rates. I work at present at JIPMER, Pondicherry. I am self taught programmer and love writing stuff with Python. When possible, I love to trek with friends and especially look forward to an annual trek in the Himalayas. I do a bit of photography with my Canon EOS 550 and am thrilled when I get some good shots. I am club level chess player, mostly playing 1 or 3 minute blitz games online now-a-days. I am an open source enthusiast, use linux on my computers, android on my phone, and open source software as much as possible. I am an avid reader and you can see the books I read here.
