About Me

I live by the quote ” I never lose…Either I Win, or I Learn”

Sujan is someone who is always ready to step out of his comfort zone.

I think one of my most distinguishing characteristics is the diversity of knowledge I possess. I am a science student with a flair for the humanities. A guy with technical aptitude and skill in management. I also have a passion for traveling and understanding different cultures of the world. All these elements have given me a very broad outlook, with varying degrees of knowledge on a range of topics. And I love people with a tremendous sense of humor after all, what’s life without fun in it.

When I get bored and tired of chasing something in life, movies give me solace, and I am a great fan of Tom Hanks. I have traveled less as per social standards but am very keen on traveling the globe and understand different cultures. Coming to writing, I need to improve a lot and make my narratives less boring.

I call myself a techie, to prove that I understand technology jargon and whenever any of my friends plan to buy a gadget they call me.
