Life is a roller costar ride. Things won’t go pretty normal, right? Well, life gets messy sometimes, and I like to write about my messes along the way. I blog a bit too infrequently at Irréversible Journey.
The Diary of a Research Scholar
I am writing about my journey as a research scholar in IIT Guwahati. Now done with two year of experience at IIT Guwahati. I would like to thank all my friends for their support and motivation.
"Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul." It all started with a Tulsi sapling. Now I have got a number of plants in my balcony. I loved to see them grow. Everytime I see them, they are smiling.
Quilling is the art of rolling narrow strips of paper into coils or scrolls, and arranging them to form elegant filigree. I use my creativity quite often onto it. I gift it to my friends on their special day.
Being a foodie loved to have different cuisines. I have learnt basic cooking as a strategy to encounter certain real life situation. My food journey in Guwahati till date covered 30 restaurants in all.
Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any way. Being 'vegan' is the best thing, I can do for animal and the planet. I am currently working for save the Rhino campaign.

Swimming is a good all-round exercise. A fun filled activity keeps you fresh all day long. Being beginner learnt freestyle and backstroke till now.
