The Universe is incredibly wonderful with hidden order and synergy. Curiosity & Fascination for Science, Music, Philosophy is perhaps means to discover the seeker within..

Why does the Poori puff? What’s inside a Mobile? Do ABCDs have a reason?
What’s in a bengali name? Which is simpler? Alexa or Siri?
Why the colors in this Universe? Do I see the Shoe as ‘Pink or Blue’?
What’s the poetry in the Suprabatam.. Can I scale the Gita Language?

My background is in embedded engineering, I enjoy learning Sanskrit, listening to Indian Music, and am mother of two teen boys. During my many months of break from work, I seem to have enjoyed the randomness, magical connections and the stories that my surroundings had to tell.. And I immensely enjoy learning, teaching and expression by writing. Welcome Reader!

If you are not into these topics, and yet want to read some of the musings, do jump to the last section of this post, or skim through the topics. Apology for the clutter!

I have prompted MetaAI to provide a summary on the topic list.. Perhaps it will guide you..

“Join this inspiring author on a journey of discovery, as she weaves together seemingly disparate threads from science, technology, language, philosophy, and Indian scriptures. With a gift for making connections and sparking intuition, she reveals the hidden harmonies that unite these fields. Through her writing, she invites readers to explore new perspectives, cultivate curiosity, and deepen their understanding of the world and themselves. She also touches on the intriguing intersection of human intelligence and artificial intelligence, hinting at the potential for collaborative insights.

Come and experience the joy of learning, as she illuminates the interconnectedness of all things.”
