In real life, I play a character called Abhijay Awasthi.
I am a research scientist by profession, a chemical engineer by education, an Indian by nation, and a rational optimist by disposition.
I read a lot. And by reading I mean consuming copious amounts of random articles on the internet. As I consume a lot of information, my head is always full of garbage data. So whenever time permits, I come to this blog to clear my head. Here I try to organize my thoughts by writing them. I think that writing provides a clarity of thought that is usually absent in verbal conversations. As Jeff Bezos says –
Full sentences are harder to write. They have verbs. The paragraphs have topic sentences. There is no way to write a six-page, narratively structured memo and not have clear thinking.
My goal here is to write and think clearly. Simple.
There is little new to what I write here. The ideas are seldom original and are usually borrowed from the sources I read. Call it borrowed thinking on my part. Essentially, it’s plagiarizing someone else’s opinion, sometimes with my own humble inputs. I always aim for a proper attribution by linking to the relevant source (book/article) in the post. Forgive me in case I fail to do so. Rest assured, it is completely unintentional. It may be because I honestly don’t remember the original source.
Since the writings on this blog are just my opinion on something, their scope is limited by my own ignorance. I have plenty of ill-formed opinions, so feel free to point out any mistakes. I would be very happy to correct them. I have changed my opinions in the past and am not pig-headed that way.
And now, some disclaimers. The opinions/ramblings here are not aimed at ‘proving’ anything to anyone. Read them as some random musings of an ignorant engineer. I try my best not to be judgmental. But then there is a very thin line between being opinionated and being judgmental. So, if I offend you in any way, my apologies in advance.
(Let) Go, Be Happy.

PS: Not a writer (not even by a long shot), so pardon the clumsy writing. The hope here is to get better with time.
