About Me

Note: This page is one of the oldest in this blog. I started this blog when I was in 8th standard. And I grew up with it. So, when you go down this page, you'll see older "about me"s. 

I am a medical student. I spend a huge share of my time learning new things in medicine/technology/culture/literature. You could actually read my wikipedia user page here to get a biographic overview about me.
I am interested in a lot of stuff, and more importantly I have an opinion about most stuff. I believe in equality, liberty, and humanism.

Update 7/12/2013 I used to edit this page in the wrong direction till this update. So the update immediately before this will be at the end of the post.
Older forms:

Well, that's me in picture. In words:

Now, if you haven't read my profile, here it is (in its extended form)
I usually waste a lot of time:
playing chess with my father and almost always losing after being in a position of sure win
Or reading all those PDF e-books I've downloaded
Or watching the magic of Roger Federer on court
Or trying to learn Einstein's Theory of Relativity (General and Special - both still confusing me)
Or drawing triangles and finding new formulas for finding their area
Or watching Nat Geo
Or listening what Obama has to tell
Or reading the same chapters of My Experiments with Truth that I've read at least 5 times
Or fighting with my father about whether God exists in a concrete or an abstract or at least an incomprehensible form, outside the minds of people, and failing to counter his point that it should be experienced and can't be explained
Or dreaming of becoming an IAS officer and changing the world (or at least the district I'm posted to), and then being the CM of Kerala and changing the state, then being the PM and changing the nation and then being the Prez and relaxing on the consequences of my actions.
A small aim is a crime, right?

Update on July 20, 2009:
Well, interests do change, sometimes due to external pressure, and I've decided to take MBBS (over BSc and MSc) so that I can enter civil service, and resign, in case some minister is too much.

Update on Feb 6, 2010:
I've found an interesting career path.
MBBS, then higher studies in neuroscience, then find how mind works. Then go for IAS or anything. The question is whether I would be interested in IAS by then. Because I've developed a liking for science more than people of late. Let's see if we can find a bridge connecting them.

I started blogging just out of my characteristic enthusiasm and will to learn anything.

I thought I would make easy money through ads and set up all my blogs to show ads.

But later, I understood that my blogs should not have any ads. Now, my blog is a non-profit blog.

Ads are again here, because, I think it may come useful.

Again my blog is ad-free because when google adsense showed no sense in putting non-sense malayalam ads in my blog, i regained my senses, and removed unnecessary ad blocks. [Updated on April 7, 2009]

What is wrong in displaying ads in my blog?? [Updated on April 9, 2009]

Well, though I could add ads, they're just messy and I don't like them in my blog where 'serious' matters are discussed [:D][Updated on July 20, 2009]

I had links to copyrighted, pirated materials in my blog earlier. But, as I learned that those things are completely illegal and hurting I decided to remove them.

Now, my blog is a user friendly one designed to carry my ideas forward.
