The Universe is incredibly wonderful with the 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 simple-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 language of Gita?

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 and the stories, that the day to day surroundings had to tell.. And I enjoy listening, learning, teaching and writing. Welcome Reader!
