A human being- that’s how I’d like to introduce myself to you. Because after leaving the usual traits- nationality, ethnicity, religious views, social class, gender, sexual orientation, age, complexion, height, weight- belonging to the same species might be the only similarity between you and me! So let’s start there.
As a kid I was fortunate enough to be grown up in a family that was both inspiring and supportive. While most of the nineties kids were introduced to technology with handheld gamepads, I was one of the few luckiest to be able to get my hands on a computer at a very young age. Under my father’s supervision I split my time between games and getting to know the basics of computer including typing, Microsoft word, painting, piano, photoshop (yes, that was 15 years ago!). I was already a power user by the time I got into high school. I soon discovered my abilities to get the hang of new softwares pretty easily which comes instinctively.
I started keeping tabs on technology at an early age and started writing about tech towards the latter years of my education in Government Laboratory High School. But as for my love of technology, it didn’t really start with technology itself, it started with books and at a much earlier stage! I learnt that innovation needs an imaginative mind which for me was shaped by books by reputable authors of different era and had a profound effect on my tender mind. Being a student at one of the most prestigious institution of the country and guided by the sage teachers, I was able to nurture my mental development and develop my senses from the very beginning.
College years had been the stage to broaden my views and being able to walk on others shoes. One perk of studying in Dhaka College was I got much free time to start contemplating on myself, my surroundings, people of my generation and environment which helped develop my endurance level and consciousness.
Ever since childhood I had three equally strong passions: robotics, programming and automobile engineering. And when I was presented with an option to choose subject for my undergraduate study in Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, I wasted no time in choosing the subject which will leave all three doors open for me- Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
My university life so far has been the most diverse time of my life. I’ve made new friends and worked with some truly amazing people, worked under supervision of great teachers, participated in numerous projects shows, workshops and seminars, I’ve joined in societies and contributed in organizing several events. I’ve also published an e-book that contains solutions to many C++ problems.
Apart from spending my free time on social media, I enjoy reading and occasionally writing articles and tutorials, taking photographs, watching videos on youtube that range from funny cat videos to documentaries to quantum mechanics to astrophysics. I love watching movies and tv series and try to relate them to life. I enjoy listening to music from almost all ages and genres. I basically like any form of art that soothes my senses.
I remember my father to once show me the milky way when I was a kid. The awe of discovering my insignificance in this vast universe and simultaneous joy of being part of something so great engulfed me in such a way that it has defined my way of thinking. To this day, I have known my place in the universe and with ever expanding universe I’m trying hard to expand my little universe too.
