Namaskaaram! Vanakkam! Thanks for stopping by this fancy domain. Heard my name already? Good good.
I’m a 20-something South Indian with avid interest in software, music, literature and art. I’ve always wanted to be in sectors that have the biggest agency to make a change. I believe this is in tech startups.
What’s in the name of this blog
The Observation Book is an ode to my rigorous student life. One where inordinate time was squandered on documenting mundane and complex science experiments. One where I got my engineering degree for free so I could afford to switch streams.
My foray into tech started with my eclectic reading habit in college. Credits to Peter Thiel, Ben Horowitz and later, Sheryl Sandberg. I have immense admiration for tech founders such as Sridhar Vembu and Girish Mathrubootham for creating great economic opportunity in South India and beyond. Most importantly, for helping me kickstart my career as someone who was an industry outsider.
I have a rather strange relationship with art forms such as painting, singing and playing the violin. My whole journey in the arts can be summed up as steady philandering. To say the least, it has been quite liberating to rebel against most people’s cookie-cutter understanding of art.
If you’re interested to know more about what I value in life or want some help figuring out your own values, this post is for you.
